The 2023 Mi-Bike Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) calendar continues to take shape, with a standalone Phillip Island stop revealed as round six.

Taking place on 27-29 October, the penultimate round of next year’s series marks the second time the championship will visit the iconic circuit in 2023, with the season opener taking place at the venue alongside the Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK) on 24-26 February.

The latest announcement means just two rounds remain TBC on the 2023 ASBK calendar, with round three set for Queesland Raceway on 28-30 April and the fourth round a Darwin Triple Crown two plus four event, alongside the Supercars Championship at Hidden Valley between 16-18 June.

Tailem Bend will host the final round once more, on 1-3 December, with an official pre-season test to take place at Sydney Motorsport Park (SMSP) on 1-2 February, the complex heavily rumoured to host an ASBK round in 2023.
