A Dizzying Lap Of Donington Park + Video
Donington Park in the United Kingdom is one of the most unique racetracks on the World Superbike calendar. With wide, fast, sweeping corners combined with tight chicanes and road undulations, the track is challenging for many riders. Here, climb on board with Giuliano Rovelli as he pilots a Suzuki GSX-R1000 around the track with several Nilox cameras mounted for a bevy of different angles.
Unlike past videos produced by Nilox and World Superbike, this particular one lacks the sudden jump cuts seen in the lap of Imola video, for example. However, if nothing else, hearing Rovelli juggle with his throttle and brake inputs shows how tricky the Donington track can be.
