The announcement to postpone this year’s race, which was scheduled for October, was announced by the official promoters of the South African event, GAS Sports.
“Despite GAS Sports best efforts and significant investment in the planning for the 2014 WSBK event, works at Phakisa Freeway required for the FIM's homologation had to be halted while the Free State Tourism Authority, the custodians of Phakisa Freeway, formalised their additional funding requirements to enable South Africa's hosting of this prestigious World Championship event,” said Sivile Mabandla, GAS Sports Chairperson.
GAS also promotes the Phakisa round of the Monster Energy SuperGP Champions Trophy, which will still take place at the Free State circuit on October 19. This event will form the penultimate round of the national championship series.
