An agreement has been reached that will see the Californian circuit host WSBK through to 2015.

The 2013 round will take place on September 29 and imarks the return of the championship to the spectacular Monterey circuit for the first time since 2004.

“We have a strong history with World Superbike and are thrilled to have them commit to a three-year race schedule,” says Gill Campbell, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca CEO/general manager.

“Their return to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca solidifies our position as THE premier circuit in the US for motorcycle racing.”

The Miller Motorsports Park in Utah has hosted the US round since 2008.
