Crash join Rizla for Donington WSBK entry.

Tom Sykes has been rewarded for his World Superbike performance at Brands Hatch with the chance to impress once again at the Donington Park round of the championship next month.

Sykes hit the headlines at Brands Hatch when he qualified on the second row of the grid before proceeding to very nearly score a podium in the first race of the weekend. He would eventually come away with a seventh place finish in the second race after being forced to retire with a damaged radiator in the first one.

Although there were no plans for Rizla Suzuki to compete in both British-based World Superbike rounds, Sykes's performance has seemingly prompted them to find the necessary funding to get back on the world stage – and will be there to keep you regularly updated throughout the weekend.

Your leading motorsport website will be at Donington Park, shadowing the Rizla team in their bid to take on and beat World Superbike stars, including Troy Bayliss, Noriyuki Haga, Max Biaggi and Brands Hatch double winner Ryuichi Kiyonari.

Furthermore, Rizla will have stiff competition from some familiar faces after HM Plant Honda confirmed their participation with Cal Crutchlow and Leon Haslam, while Hydrex Bike Animal Honda will also enter a bike for James Ellison.

So, be sure to log onto on 4th September to 7th September for exclusive interviews, audio and 'fly on the wall' insight from one of the most popular teams on the British scene, as well as interviews with more of the world's leading riders.

Sykes is young but still has to grow for being included in the wsbk races. He knows the circuits in UK, and much easier for him to grap a result ! Wish him all the best and hope he can finish in the top 10.

Great news, go sykes, go sykes... Just hope he can beat hm plant, altogether sykes has been a revelation this year, if he didnt have such rotten luck at start of season he would be abit closer to shakey, im uner no illusions that he would beat shakey this season but that gap would have been alot smaller.
