Leon Camier has expressed his delight at the return of Donington Park to the World Superbike Championship calendar for 2011.

Camier made his WSBK debut at Donington Park as a wild-card for the Airwaves Yamaha team in 2009, the 24-year-old raising his stock on the international stage with a fine run to sixth position.

Going on to record a popular podium finish at Silverstone during his first full season in 2010 for Aprilia, Camier is excited to see Donington Park back on the schedules for 2011 as an additional British event.

"I'm really looking forward to racing at Donington Park again; it's such a legendary track.

"We had a good win there in 2009 on the way to taking the British Superbike Championship title, and I've always enjoyed riding there. But the biggest thing for me is being able to go out there and race in front of the British fans twice in a season.

"The support I had at Silverstone this year was unbelievable. Looking around and seeing all of the Camier T-shirts, the cheers from the crowd and the reception we had when we stood on the podium, they are all things I will never forget, so to be able to experience that twice will be fantastic."

Camier was also a race winner at Donington Park on the way to his record-breaking 2009 BSB triumph.
