2011 Donington Park major race dates revealed

World Superbike series makes its return to East Midlands track

DONINGTON PARK has released the circuit's 2011 major events calendar, featuring the welcome return of the World Superbike series to the schedule.

The revamped track, venue for the first-ever round of the World Superbike series, is now back in action following a botched attempt in 2009 to elevate the East Midlands track onto the Formula One calendar.
