The Independent Online
Britain stages the 13th round of the World Superbike Championship at Donington Park this weekend and for Carl Fogarty, the Blackburn rider, victory would bring him closer to the title, yet to be won by a Briton. Fogarty is nine points adrift of the championship leader, Scott Russell, of the United States, but his record at Donington is impressive. Four wins in this 750-1,000cc category and the lap record on his previous appearance in the British Championship series in June should give Fogarty the confidence to gain points on Russell going into the two remaining rounds after Donington. Qualifying for Sunday's championship starts today.
