Bennetts British Superbike bosses say they are closely monitoring forecasts for the remainder of this weekend’s opening round at Donington Park as a bout of poor weather hits the UK throughout Easter weekend. 

While the outlook for Monday’s race day has largely improved since earlier in the week when snow was forecast, the threat of cold temperatures and a significant amount of rain remains.

In close contact with the weather station at East Midlands Airport, race direction are monitoring the situation closely and considering various options to ensure a full race programme can take place.

Advice from the circuit is to ensure you are equipped with suitable clothing and footwear. Improvements have been made to the access roads around the circuit during the winter, but yesterday’s unrelenting rain has left car parks and grass walkways on site muddy. Motorcycle parking is already on Donington’s tarmac lake, not grass, while organisers ask for visitors to bear with them when car parks are emptying at the end of the day.
