Tickets now on sale for British Superbikes at Donington Park in 2016
The MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship returns to Donington Park next year for the first round of the crucial ‘Showdown’ phase of the season on 16-18 September, and tickets are now on sale.
The British Superbike Championship is Britain’s biggest motorbike racing series, and has become hugely popular around the world with fantastically close racing and combative riders.
With Donington hosting the first round of the crucial ‘Showdown’ phase in 2016, fans at the event will have a key glimpse as to which riders are on course to challenge for the title!
The series attracts a truly international crop of riders, with some coming from backgrounds in World Superbikes and even MotoGP. 2015 saw Australian Josh Brookes finally clinch his maiden title after challenging for several years, but the series looks set for another massive shake-up in 2016.
Expect the regular contenders to all return, with many names already signed up. Four-time champion Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne has confirmed his place for next year, riding a new Ducati for the Be Wiser Paul Bird Motorsport team, with other leading riders also confirmed at this early stage including James Ellison, Lee Jackson and Danny Buchan. An intriguing new development is the arrival of the ePayMe Yamaha team, headed by former champion Tommy Hill, with ex-Moto GP star John Hopkins as one of the riders alongside series regular Stuart Easton. Grid sizes in 2015 reached over 35 riders, so expect more of the same this time!
Fans at the venue won’t miss a second of the action with big screens placed around the track at popular viewing spots, while our open paddock policy means spectators will be able to mingle with the riders and see the teams in action.
It’s a weekend full of top class bike racing, with more action coming from the packed out grids of the National Superstock 1000 & 600, the always exciting British Supersport Championship and young guns of the Motostar championship. Thrills aren’t just limited to the circuit, with fairground rides, entertainment for families and children, trade stands and much more.
