In this week's edition of MCN Donington Park loses the British round of MotoGP to Silverstone after 22 years.

Silverstone managed to secure a deal with MotoGP bosses to host the British GP for five years from 2010 - meaning you'll get one last chance to see the MotoGP bikes scream down Craner Curves this year.

Also Norton Motorcycles finally gets rolling as they move in to their new premises at Donington Park.

Norton boss Stuart Garner reckons the prototype Norton Commandos will be on the road within weeks.
