Donington Park is John Reynolds' home circuit and the Rizla Suzuki ace is hoping to improve on his recent run of podium results when he races there this weekend at the 12th and penultimate round of the British Superbike Championship.

"Donington Park is close to my hometown of Nottingham and I hope that the Rizla Suzuki fans come out in strength this weekend," explained Reynolds. "Like any rider, I am lifted and inspired by the fans if they are cheering me on.

"The Donington GP circuit is a fantastic technical track that is difficult to master. I'm back on top of my game and my Rizla Suzuki has benefited from a lot of development recently. It's not going to be easy, but I'll be doing my best to improve on the two thirds I finished up with at Oulton Park."

Rizla Suzuki tested at the 2.5-mile long Donington Park circuit in June with Reynolds and his team mate James Haydon each completing more than 70-laps.

Haydon said: "I can't wait to get racing at Donington Park. It's a fast flowing circuit that rewards commitment and I'll be giving it my all. My Rizla Suzuki is pretty much sorted and doing what I want it to do and I'm so hungry to win a race that it's all I can think about."

Superbike racing starts at 1315hrs on Sunday, September 25th, at Donington Park in Leicestershire.
