Donington Park WorldSBK: Xavi Vierge returns to WorldSBK after testing at Suzuka

Gold and Goose

Xavi Vierge is ready to get back on track in the WorldSBK Championship this weekend at Donington Park.

Xavi Vierge spent his time in between the Misano WorldSBK and the British WorldSBK round still riding bikes. The Spanish rider was over in Suzuka taking part in a test setup by HRC ahead of the Suzuka 8 Hour later this year.

But with Vierge now being fully focussed back on the WorldSBK Championship he will be looking to improve on his eighth place Championship position.


Last year an injured Vierge finished thirteenth in both Race One and Race Two at Donington Park, but now a fully fit Vierge will hope to be fighting up towards the front end.

"We return to racing after a small break between races," said Vierge after he returned from Suzuka. "But this didn’t keep me away from riding as after Misano I attended a test in Suzuka that went well and then I trained at home as usual in order to remain fully fit.

"I’m looking forward to the coming weekend because last year I raced at Donington for the first time but although I loved the track on sight, I wasn’t able to enjoy it because I was returning from injury and so that meant I struggled.

"I’ve heard that the asphalt is new so I’m looking forward to working with my team again and keeping up with the good work we’ve been doing."
