Work is underway to bring WorldSBK back to Hungary. The collaboration between Dorna WSBK Organization and the Hungarian Mobility Development Agency (HUMDA) is exploring the possibility of stopping already in 2024 at Balaton Park with the world's most important championship reserved for production-derived motorcycles.

Dorna and HUMDA are working together on the’homologation of the new Balaton Park Circuit, as well as the historic Hungaroring, with the’goal of bringing MotoGP and WorldSBK back to Hungary soon.

The’goal of an updated agreement between Dorna and HUMDA first is to include Balaton Park in the 2024 WorldSBK calendar and as a reserve venue for MotoGP in the next season, and then to review the Hungaroring in MotoGP from 2025.
