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.
