- Home race for BMW works riders Scott Redding and Eugene Laverty.
- Ilya Mikhalchik again replacing the injured Michael van der Mark.
Donington Park. A special round of the FIM Superbike World Championship 2022 awaits BMW Motorrad Motorsport this coming weekend. The fifth event of the season at Donington Park (GBR) is the home race for Scott Redding as well as for Shaun Muir Racing. After about a month’s break, the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team is aiming to take the next step forward at Donington Park.
Ilya Mikhalchik (UKR) will once again race as a replacement for Michael van der Mark (NED) in the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team. The Dutch rider will be there at Donington Park, but is still recovering from the femoral neck fracture that he suffered at Estoril (POR).
BMW Motorrad Motorsport used the break after the race at Misano (ITA) for brief testing at Donington Park. Redding and Loris Baz (FRA) evaluated a range of updates for the BMW M 1000 RR, including changes to the electronics and the chassis.
