Affectionately known as the heart of British Motorsport, Donington Park has hosted racing since the 1930's. Set in the grounds of the majestic Donington Hall Estate, on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border, the modern-day circuit allows ample viewing options across the 4,023m layout with a new infield camping zone opening for the 2016 races. Breath-taking racing and last corner battles are common-place, with Lowes having claimed a podium-position here in his debut year on the world stage.
"I'm really looking forward to my home race at Donington as I love riding in front of the British fans," Lowes said,
"Obviously it's a race against time for me to be fit - the operation went well to fix the collarbone and clean up my damaged fingers so now it's going to be about recovering as much as possible before next week and trying to compete.
"It means so much to me to try and ride, as a team we have had a slightly difficult start to the new project but we are all giving everything, the last few races have been progressing nicely so I am determined to keep improving for Pata Yamaha, and the whole Crescent team. I want to send a massive thank you as always to all our sponsors and ask them to please get behind us in what will be a difficult home race! I am determined to give it my all and look forward to seeing you all there!"
