UK WorldSBK round confirmed for Donington – 26/27/28 May 2017
Donington Park are proud to announce that the Leicestershire track will once again host the only UK Round of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship next year, with the date confirmed for 26-28 May 2017.
Retaining the now traditional late May race date, the weekend will once more feature two championship points scoring races for the Superbike World Championship, with strong support from the equally exciting championships for World Supersport and Superstock, as well as a number of races from British national series.
This year’s event saw an attendance increase of 15% over that of 2015, boosted by the presence of so many top British world championship contenders, as well as the circuit’s popular 2016 initiatives including the Entertainment Zones and the all-new Infield Campsite with its superb trackside viewing. Both of these features will return, even further enhanced, in 2017.
Donington Park Managing Director Christopher Tate commented: “We are delighted to confirm the date for next year’s MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship round at Donington Park. We look forward to once again working closely with Championship owners, Dorna. We are determined to expand our visitor offer, and are committed to further increasing attendances at the event. In 2017, with a British champion again now confirmed as 2016’s Jonathan Rea from Northern Ireland, and a number of fresh initiatives from Dorna and ourselves, we look forward to once again welcoming significant spectator numbers to Donington Park, for the only UK round of this world class championship.”
