Donington Park will sponsor Leon Haslam in the 2015 World Superbike Championship.

The Derbyshire venue is Haslam's local circuit and also hosts the only UK round of the WSBK series.

Haslam has joined Red Devils Roma Aprilia for 2015 and is confident of delivering a title challenge. The 31-year-old is a regular WSBK podium finisher, including three wins, and has a best championship finish of runner-up in 2010.

"I'm extremely grateful for Donington Park's support for the coming season," Haslam said. "Donington has been a happy hunting ground for me in the past, in MotoGP as well as in British and World Superbikes, and a circuit that is very close to my heart. I'm confident of challenging for the World Superbike title this year on my Red Devils Roma Aprilia, and I hope I can give my home fans something to shout about at the round in May, the only time this year I'll get to race on home soil."

Donington Park managing director Christopher Tate added: "All of us here at Donington Park are keen supporters of Leon Haslam, and we are very pleased to confirm this arrangement with him that will prove beneficial to both parties.

"The deal also further strengthens our links with the Haslam family, which of course includes the extremely successful Honda Ron Haslam Race School, which has been based again at the circuit for three years. We look forward to seeing Leon race here on 22-24 May and will enjoy working closely with him throughout the year."

As part of the deal, Haslam will wear circuit branding and enjoy his own hospitality suite.
