Round 11 – Donington Park GP

This weekend the British Superbike Championship travels back to Donington Park, but on the longer GP circuit rather than the National like earlier in the season.

Xavi Forés will be looking for a repeat performance of Round 3, where he was challenging for the win and landed three podiums across the weekend. Teammate Andrew Irwin will be looking for another two finishes and more positive results at the Leicestershire circuit.

The team will be back to its full capacity as the National Superstock 1000 Championship is back in action and Tom Neave is looking towards the podium to work his way back up the championship standings.

Donington Park first opened its gates in 1931, initially for motorcycle racing and then two years later for car action. The circuit went on to stage Grand Prix for both motorcycles and cars in the pre-war era. Donington Park was subsequently re-built and re-opened in 1977. Among other accolades, Donington Park staged the first ever round of the World Superbike Championship, as well as holding the F1 Grand Prix of Europe in 1993.
