The Grand Prix Circuit at Donington, which is being used for Round 1 of the British Superbike Championship, has hosted the British Motorcycle Grand Prix since 1987. It is just over 4 kilometres in length and contains 12 turns. Over the years the circuit has hosted, amongst others, Formula 1 races, the World Touring Car Championships and MotoGP but has also been the location of several music festivals.

For further information about the circuit and venue can be found on the Donington website.

Superbike races have been affected by extreme weather in the past. In 2006 the conditions were described as 'treacherous due to heavy rain and hail' and in 2013 heavy rain on the Friday led to slippery conditions for Saturday's races.
