Donington Park plays host to the only British round of the Superbike World Championship this weekend. It’s a notoriously exciting circuit with the awesome Craner Curves and some very fast corners, this is going to be some electrifying racing. With just 16 points separating Jonathan Rea and Alvaro Bautista, we can expect some fierce competition on the track.

Bautista started out very well, winning the first eleven races in a row. But his luck changed as he lost the lead in both Jerez and Misano due to crashes. So unexpected as it is, Jonathan Rea now has a chance to pull forward and take the title.

Beyond the Superbike World Championship

Of course the main draw for this event is the World Championship racing. Seeing world famous riders from all over the globe compete at speeds of more than 200mph is a massive thrill. But there’s plenty more going on as well, making this a truly amazing weekend for anyone attending. The events of the weekend will also include the Pirelli National Superstock 1000, World Supersport, World Supersport 300 and the British Talent Cup.

So much more to see and do

As if that’s not enough, there is so much going on away from the track too. The Paddock Show will be a hive of activity and a great atmosphere is guaranteed. With live music to set the scene, you’ll get to participate in Q&A sessions with some top riders and there will be games and giveaways too. There’s an improved Fan Zone this year with displays and shopping opportunities, and of course the Demon Drone Wall of Death is a must see. Hold your breath as you watch terrifying stunts on the vertical racetrack.

You could have a go on the extreme wheelie simulator. All the thrills of a high speed wheelie without the danger, or get your face painted and have fun at the fairground. It’s certainly worth sticking around into the evening as there are some brilliant bands playing into the night. Why not take advantage of the on-site camp ground?
