From November 18 to 20, 2022, the WorldSBK returns to Australia for its final round. The production-based series will return to Australia for the first time since February 2020, right before the global coronavirus outbreak began, to conclude this year's 12-round campaign. The season finals will be held on Phillip Island from November 18-20, making it a back-to-back event with the previous round in Mandalika, Indonesia.

The Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit will host the 12th and final round of the 2022 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, with WorldSBK and WorldSSP racing from November 18 to 20. The year's lone doubleheader, the Australian Round, will take place just one week after the Indonesian Round in 2022.

Thanks to a change to the 2022 schedule, the WorldSBK season will end with back-to-back rounds for the first time since 2010, and the 11th time in the Championship's history. The historic Phillip Island Circuit has been on the WorldSBK calendar every year since 1990, with the exception of 1993 and 2021c due to the global pandemic which saw the cancellation of dozens of motoring and racing events all across the globe. The Australian venue has hosted the most WorldSBK races, with a total of 61 and counting.

The WorldSBK calendar has been updated for 2022, and the entire paddock is looking forward to returning to The Land Down Under for what promises to be a spectacular season finale. For the fourth time in the Championship's 35-year history, Phillip Island will host the season finale, the last time being in 1996. After 2022, the Australian Round is scheduled to revert to its previous status as the calendar's season opener.

The removal of the 13th 'TBA' round from the draft schedule disclosed late last year is the only major change, reducing the total number of events down to 12 from 13 in 2021. Aragon will kick off the season on April 8 to 10, with a two-day official test scheduled for this week, April 4 to 5, at the racing circuit in Spain.
