Schedule
Donington Park GP - 31 - 02 April
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.

Brands Hatch Indy - 14 - 17 April
Brands Hatch is one of the most iconic sporting venues in the world and can lay claim to being the busiest race circuit in Europe.

Having undergone a series of major improvements in recent years, the Kent circuit now attracts some of the biggest international events on the calendar. Ever since starting out as a dirt track motorcycle circuit in 1926, Brands Hatch has been characterised by its natural ampitheatre, with virtually the entire 'Indy' configuration visible from the spectator banking and grandstands.

A firm fans' favourite, Brands Hatch has also witnessed a number of significant moments in history.

Oulton Park - 29 - 01 May
Widely acknowledged as the most picturesque race circuit in the country, Oulton Park is recognised as much for its stunning surroundings as the spectacular racing that takes place on its hallowed tarmac. Voted the best UK circuit by BSB fans in 2007, Oulton Park features rapidly changing gradients and blind crests, and presents a supreme challenge to riders. Spectators can enjoy fantastic views of the action, with the outside of Knickerbrook in particular a favourite of the crowds.

Knockhill - 16 - 18 June
Knockhill Racing Circuit in Fife is Scotland's national Motorsport centre. The circuit is located in the Fife countryside about 10 miles north of Dunfermline.

The track, initially opened in 1974, is 1.3 miles long and was created by joining service roads to a nearby disused railway.

Since the 1980s Knockhill has been extensively developed to a point where it is able to host rounds of most of the major British car and motorcycle racing championships.

Snetterton 300 - 30 - 02 July
Snetterton race circuit underwent a major redevelopment over the winter of 2010 with the track transformed to become one of the best in the UK through a combination of rider exhilaration, spectator entertainment and safety.

The 3-mile Snetterton 300 incorporated a completely new infield section of approximately 1 mile integrated with a revised version of the original Snetterton circuit.

Snetterton 300 is the newest circuit in the UK and the second longest in the country, and has been designed as an international circuit.

Thruxton - 04 - 06 August
Originally built in 1940 as RAF Thruxton, a World War II airfield and home to both the RAF and USAF, the site was used for troop-carrying aircraft and gliders during the D-Day landings.

In 1946 it was decommissioned and from 1950 it was used for motorsport. Motorcycling was the first sport to be staged there, with four-wheeled racing commencing from 1952.

Thruxton is one of the fastest circuits on the British Superbike Championship calendar and one which has hosted events as varied as World Endurance motorcycles, European F2 cars and trucks.

The demands of the circuit range from the long, fast straights and flowing corners to tight, demanding Complex and Chicane sections.

Cadwell Park - 18 - 20 August
A real mecca for bike fans, Cadwell Park hosts the biggest round of the MCE British Superbike Championship, with thousands of spectators travelling to the circuit fondly nicknamed the 'Mini-Nurburgring' every August.

Cadwell Park is probably most famous for 'the Mountain', where bikes frequently get airbourne, and it's the striking mix of twists, cambers and gradients that have led to the circuit's burgeoning popularity over the years.

Silverstone GP - 08 - 10 September
Currently the home of the Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix, this former wartime airfield circuit can boast being one of the world's foremost motorsport venues.

Silverstone hosted the first ever round of the F1 World Championship in 1948, and over the years has developed to meet the needs of the modern sporting era.

The circuit held the British Motorcycle Grand Prix for a decade, following the event's switch to the mainland from the Isle of Man and has staged World Superbike Championship action in recent years in addition to the domestic series.

In 2010 MCE BSB raced on the new Arena GP circuit for the first time.

TT Circuit Assen - 29 - 01 October
Assen circuit is steeped in motorcycle racing history and has been an iconic track for fans across Europe and renowned as 'The Cathedral'. Assen has rapid changes in direction, and is fully surrounded by grass banks and grandstands, providing excellent viewing for the thousands of spectators who visit. A huge favourite with riders, Assen is known for its festive and extravagant atmosphere.

The original Assen track was first used for the 1925 Dutch Tourist Trophy race, held on country roads through the villages. The circuit remained unchanged until 1955, when a new circuit was built close to the site of the original. The circuit was fundamentally redesigned in 2006, becoming the Assen TT Circuit. All alterations aside, only one section of the circuit is original; the finish line never moved.

In 1999 the circuit was modified with a new grandstand, control tower and renovated pit garages. Modifications to the circuit over the winter of 2005/6 saw the length reduced to 2.822 miles.
