Donington test next for Superleague

The Superleague Formula teams will head to Donington Park for the first of two pre-season "friendlies" starting next week - the final two test sessions before the opening round of the championship.

Teams will be able to hit the track at Donington on the next two Thursdays - August 21 and 28 - the second test date is just two days prior to the start of the opening round of the championship.

Superleague Formula teams tested at Vallelunga near Rome last week with a three day test. Turkish club Galatasaray grabbed the opening bragging rights after topping the times with Alesandro Pier Guidi behind the wheel.

The upcoming Donington test will also feature a number of clubs on track for the first time including Premier League squad Tottenham Hotspur which was announced last week as the latest Superleague Formula entry.

The opening round of the Superleague Formula championship will be held at Donington Park on August 30/31 followed by the Nurburgring (September 20-21), Zolder (October 4-5), Estoril (October 18-19), Vallelunga (November 1-2) and Jerez (November 22-23).
