Donington Park returns on 2011 BSB calendar

Donington Park replaces Mallory Park on the 2011 British Superbike Championship schedule, it is confirmed.
MSV has announced the 2011 British Superbike Championship calendar, with Donington Park making its return to the series after a year's absence.

The Leicestershire circuit was left off the 2010 schedule after hitting financial problems in the wake of its failed attempt to secure the Formula 1 British Grand Prix, but is now ready to host high-profile events once more.

It will be joined on the calendar by the newly configured Snetterton, which will have been reconfigured and expanded to almost three miles when the BSB series visits in July.

The season itself will start on April 22-25, once again at Brands Hatch, while the Kent circuit will also host the series finale once more following two years at Oulton Park.

One circuit missing from the 12 round schedule, however, is Mallory Park.

The 2011 MCE British Superbike Championship calendar:

April 22-25: Brands Hatch
April 30 – May 2: Oulton Park
May 13 – 15: Croft
May 28-30: Thruxton
June 17-19: Knockhill
July 1-3: Snetterton 300
July 15-17: Oulton Park
August 5-7: Brands Hatch GP
August 27-29: Cadwell Park
September 9-11: Donington Park
September 23-15: Silverstone
October 7-9: Brands Hatch

We will be sorry to see Mallory go from the schedule, not just because it is our local circuit but in our opinion it is one of the best organised events of the schedule. For such a small circuit they always manage to get people in and out easily and the action is always close. Too close sometimes I suppose that is the reason for dropping it.
