With a massive 37 point lead going into the final round of the British Superbike Championship, MonsterMob Ducati's Steve Hislop is confident he can land the elusive title despite something of a disaster last time out at Mallory.

Hislop has brushed aside his disappointment and all the crisis talk that subsequently emerged and is focussing on the task in hand which will see him crowned champion if he finishes in the top four of either race.

"I'm not bothered in the slightest what's been said and written over the past couple of weeks. I'm going to Donington Park for one thing, and that is to win," stated Hizzy defiantly. "I was down in the dumps for a couple of hours after Mallory but that's forgotten about and I've never been so determined as I am right now. The weather's looking ok and the pressure isn't on me at all, it's on Sean Emmett. I just need to wobble round and pick up a few points; he needs to win both races."

Should sole title rival Sean Emmett - who will have the support of his Virgin Yamaha team-mate Steve Plater and Simon Crafar - win both races, Hislop only needs either a fourth place finish in one of the two races, or a ninth place result in both legs to clinch his second BSB title.
