A new event for 2017, designed to introduce new riders to the sport at little expense, meaning for big grids and plenty of drama! 

This event is being run by ThundersportGB and is the brainchild of Donington Park Sporting Director Bob Adams. 

Back in the day there were a plethora of one day race meetings that were completely stand alone – no practice day, no pre-event qualifying – the whole thing was accomplished between 9.00am & 5.00pm on race day.The Donington 500 is designed to recreate that 1990s style of race meeting, but with 21st century safety standards.

This event will be going back to the old school style of three races per class on the single day, so everyone will go home tired and happy having had a busy and entertaining days racing.

Central to the event will be a 250 mile endurance race for CB500 machines - The Donington 250 - with teams of 2 or 3 riders. This will be “true endurance” style with just one bike shared between the riders. This re-introduces the integral teamwork element that is missing from modern Tag-style endurance. Fuel stops, pad changes and getting the bike to the finish requires a level of teamwork not present in multiple machine races where swapping the transponder from one bike to another has eliminated much of this aspect of endurance.
