Donington Park first opened its gates in 1931, initially for motorcycle racing and then two years later for car action. The circuit went on to stage Grand Prix for both motorcycles and cars in the pre-war era.

Donington Park was subsequently re-built and re-opened in 1977 and has staged the British Motorcycle Grand Prix annually since 1987. Among other accolades, Donington Park staged the first ever round of the World Superbike Championship, as well as holding the F1 Grand Prix of Europe in 1993.

BSB returned to the track for the first time since 2009 last season and is back on the calendar in 2013.

Josh Brookes powered his Tyco Suzuki to a winning double at Donington Park. Brookes took his first victory since a winning ride at Thruxton in race one as he took charge to head off the threats posed by rivals Swan Yamaha's Tommy Hill and Michael Laverty aboard the Samsung Honda.

Laverty took the fight to Brookes in the second race at the Leicestershire circuit, with an intense duel for supremacy, but the Aussie had the upper hand to complete the double from Laverty with Hill third. 

WFR Honda's Alex Lowes maintained the form, taking sixth and fifth, to secure whilst Supersonic Racing BMW's Tommy Bridewell with ninth and fourth places also made the cut for the Showdown.
