BSB: 2011 calendar announced, Donington Park returns

The 2011 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship calendar has been announced by series promoters MotorSport Vision (MSV).

The 12 events include a popular return to the historic Donington Park circuit, which has re-opened under the guidance of owner Kevin Wheatcroft, and the new Snetterton ‘300’.

It was recently confirmed that Norfolk’s Snetterton circuit would be comprehensively redeveloped ahead of the 2011 season, and the sixth round on 1-3 July will be the first major national event to run on the new ‘300’ configuration.

In a change to the traditional British Touring Car Championship calendar, 2011 sees the final round of that series moving away from Brands Hatch. This allows the return of the BSB final round to its natural home on 7-9 October and the re-establishment of three major motorcycle racing events at the hallowed Kent venue.
