The forthcoming Donington Park round of the 2016 FIM Supersport World Championship marks the start of the second half of the season for the Kawasaki Puccetti Racing duo of Kenan Sofuoglu and Randy Krummenacher. They currently sit 1-2 in the championship standings, with Kenan on 96 points and Randy on 79.

Donington Park, the only British round on the calendar in 2016, is a popular venue for both Kawasaki Puccetti Racing riders to head back to this coming weekend.

Turkish superstar Kenan Sofuoglu has two former race wins at Donington, the most recent coming last year as part of his push to take the WorldSSP title for the fourth time. Supersport rookie, but long-standing 125cc and Moto2 competitor, Randy Krummenacher had his first ever 125cc Grand Prix ride at Donington, way back in 2006. That first GP weekend has always given the circuit a special place in the memory of the Swiss rider.

Both Randy and Kenan have led the championship this year, with Krummenacher winning his first ever WorldSSP race at Phillip Island back in February. In all he has taken two podium finishes in the first six rounds, which have helped to place him second in the overall rankings. Sofuoglu took over the championship lead after his race win at the Imola round.

Donington is classic circuit, contrasting in its mix of flowing sections with dramatic elevation changes, and then a final collection of slower, more geometric, corners. Donington almost requires two suspension set-ups in one. As its name suggests the circuit was originally laid out following the natural curves of an English parkland setting, with a further section behind the main paddock finally added to bring it up to its full length for major international events.

As per the new regulations and time schedules for 2016, a two-part Superpole qualifying session will finalise the grid positions for the WorldSSP riders on Saturday 28th. At the Donington round only the race (scheduled for 20 laps of the 4.023km circuit) will start at midday local time on Sunday 29th.
