Donington Park: Could be Cold, Wet, or Windy for WSBK

God, you have to love England. Donington Park sure has some cool weather when race day comes around, and it does not matter who is racing either. It is always exciting, and even has some history being made as well.

I remember the 125cc MotoGP race in 2008 when Scott Redding made some unforgettable history by winning the race there. First MotoGP rider in any class to win there, and at the age of 15, youngest rider to win a Gp race. Also on the podium there was another 15 year old in third, Marc Marquez. Although Marc looked more like a 12 year old, still made some history for himself as well. That day was a windy day, blowing a gale was the term they used, which could have blown riders right off the track. But these two 15 year old’s made it through to the podium in great style.

This last weekend though belongs to the World Superbike guys, and it was a great crashfest. And BMW win a race in 1-2 podium, sets some history there, but as the crashing went on, the two BMW riders went to the grass together on the last lap. That then let Rea, Biaggi, and Sykes to the podium in that order. Great racing overall again in Donington Park as usual.

John Hopkins was out with injury from the last race in the wet, bad luck for John, but after watching the race he might not think so. John is due to be back for the next race I believe, or trying to be.

The only other American racing is Joshua Day in WSS, but he is down the sheet at the moment.

I am sure that everyone is glad the Donington Park race is now passed, but as is the norm, this is what you get from Donington Park, and history will bear that out.
