The Donington Park round of the British Superbike Championship will go ahead as planned after it was accepted that current building work will be completed in time for the May Bank Holiday event.

Following a spate of Donington Park calendar changes, owing to continued building work at the circuit, speculation had been raised that further meetings would have to be postponed, including the annual BSB and British Touring Car Championship trips.

However, Donington Park contractors Amphion have submitted written confirmation that all required works will be completed ahead of 21 May, in time for the scheduled MCRCB inspection.

In addition, Donington Ventures Leisure Limited (DVLL) has submitted a signed contract for the event and payment has been accepted by MSVR.

The confirmation of BSB, which is scheduled to take place on 23-25 May 2009, also goes a long way to quash rumours that headlining World Superbike Championship and MotoGP events would also be affected.

"We're delighted that we have been able to reach an amicable agreement with MSVR to continue to host the third round of the 2009 British Superbike Championship in May," said Donington Park circuit owner Simon Gillett. "Our main priority was not to let the fans down, so it's satisfying to see our hard work behind the scenes paying off."
