Donington Park World Superbikes
Sunday 27th March 2011 – Donington Park
British race fans will get two chances to see their WSB heroes in 2011 following the announcement that Donington Park will host the second round of the World Superbike Championship on March 25th to 27th.
Donington Park last hosted a round of the championship in 2009 where American Ben Spies won both races on his way to claiming the title. With at least five British riders confirmed to race in WSB next season securing another round in the UK is a necessary and logical step.
Kevin Wheatcroft, chairman of the re-instated Donington Park Racing Limited, is delighted to re-establish Donington Park as a world motorcycle venue. “It was always my father’s dream and since his death at the end of last year, I always wanted to provide a world class event in his memory.”
Paolo Flammini, CEO of Infront Motor Sports, official promoter of the FIM Superbike World Championship, commented: “We are extremely pleased to bring SBK back to Donington Park for the European Round of the Championship.
"The Leicestershire circuit is where the Championship began its history 23 years ago and has hosted many successful rounds of our series over the years. Thanks to the presence of many competitive British riders both in the Superbike and Supersport classes, we are sure that the 2011 event will attract many fans and will be a huge success”.

Last year, 38yr old Tony Stevens from Hartlepool,who after a ‘gruelling’ season, managing a multi million pound budget and some of the world’s best motorcycle racers Tony not only topped our own BikeWise league – he topped the national league and ‘walked’ away with a brand new Yamaha R6. So let’s hope that we can have a repeat of last season’s success and bring that Yamaha home to the North (again)
If you want to look at your racer’s in action then check out our Moto GP and WSB photo galleries on the new BikeWise website at www.bikewise.org.uk/galleries/  (photo’s will be added as the season progresses)
