Donington boss 'excited' at hosting sole UK WSBK round

Donington Park will host the sole UK round of next year's World Superbike Championship in May as it looks like Silverstone will not run the series in 2014.

Speaking this morning from the Leicestershire track, Donington boss Christopher Tate said it was an exciting time for the new-look championship and for the circuit itself.

“It is exciting for us to be able to announce that Donington Park will be the sole UK round for the heavily revamped new World Superbikes visit in 2014. We have been working closely with Dorna over the past many months, and built a solid relationship with the new management team for the series.


"While we have understood very well what they are trying to do to re-boot the championship, what has been so encouraging is the way Dani Carrera and all his team have been so open to ideas coming in from us, and from other corners of the WSBK world – riders, teams, sponsors and manufacturers.

"This is now a series that will look very different in 2014, but excitingly for us at Donington Park, the first ever host circuit for Superbikes back in 1988, it will be the only place in the UK to see such a string group of top British riders, with Tom Sykes back as champion, increased manufacturer presence and a proper battle expected for every place, here at the heart of British motorcycle racing.

"We are really looking forward to seeing a strong turnout on the May 23/24/25 weekend next year.”
