MCGUINNESS EYES DOUBLE POINTS HAUL AT DONINGTON PARK

HM Plant Honda rider John McGuinness heads to Donington Park this weekend (30
June – 2 July) for rounds six and seven of the Metzeler National Superstock
Championship.

The blue riband GAS British MotoGP event hosts the Superstock Championship after
the series missed two rounds in the June, Mallory Park round and the cancelled
Mondello Park fixture.

McGuinness currently lies in third place in the overall standings and is intent on making
a strong impression at the 2.5-mile Leicestershire track. The Morecambe-based rider
competed at the venue in the second round of the superstock series in April, where he
finished in a strong sixth place after battling with treacherous track and weather
conditions. Since then, the HM Plant rider has consistently improved on his results and
is anticipating another good outcome and his first rostrum finish of the season aboard
his Dunlop-shod Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade.

McGuinness: “It will be good to get back racing, we have been having some good
results of late and now this weekend I have double the chance to get some major
points in the bag. The superstock series is really tough and highly competitive; there is
only three points between the sixth-placed racer, and myself so every point counts. It
will also be great to be at the MotoGP it really is a fantastic event and atmosphere is
always cracking, so fingers crossed it should be a good weekend all round.”

 

Qualifying for the Metzeler National Superstock Championship takes place on Friday 30
June at 16.15 and 18.15. Race one takes place on Saturday 1 July at 16.30 with race
two scheduled for Sunday 2 June at 15.45.
