Following a week of negotiations with MCRCB Team Principal Darrell Healey
has confirmed that GSE Racing will race at Donington Park this weekend.

“It has been a very busy week for GSE Racing off the track! I am delighted
to confirm that as a result of the amendments to the MCRCB Bulletin 2008/6,
addressing the teams safety concerns, Airwaves Ducati will be in a position to
compete this bank holiday weekend in round 4 of the British Superbike
Championship. Donington Park has to be one of GSE Racing’s favourite circuits; not
only is it an exciting track for the Airwaves Ducati but we have achieved
fantastic results there in previous seasons and we look forward to continuing
that this weekend.”

Both Airwaves Ducati riders are looking forward to getting back on their
Ducati 1098R’s at the 2.5mile Derbyshire circuit following their 3 podium place
finishes at Brands Hatch two weeks ago. Their impressive form has resulted in
a 44 point lead in the championship for Shane Byrne with team mate Leon
Camier in 3rd place on 83 points.

Although disappointed not to have done the double at his home circuit Shane
Byrne is confident for another positive performance on bank holiday Monday; “
Not winning the double at Brands Hatch has got me really fired up for this
weekend. I have pretty much been looking forward to Donington ever since the
end of race two at Brands Hatch! I think we will do well, it’s a circuit that
suits the Ducati 1098R and I can’t wait to get there and get started.”

Leon Camier appreciates that this weekend will be a learning curve for him
but he will still be pushing hard for his first win of the season. “I have not
raced a Superbike at Donington before so I will have learn the track
quickly. I am very confident though; the Airwaves Ducati is feeling better and
better as I am constantly learning more about the bike and how to get the best out
of it. A win would be fantastic but I would be happy with two podium
finishes and some solid championship points.”

Airwaves Ducati will line up for round 4 of the Bennetts British Superbike
championship on Monday 26th May.
