The Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team are fully motivated for their home event at Donington Park this weekend, Round 6 of the 2018 Motul FIM Superbike World Championship, as they prepare to challenge for honours with a three-rider lineup in the UK. Michael van der Mark is looking to bounce back from his Race 2 DNF in Imola and return to the form that saw him record a double podium at Assen. Local hero Alex Lowes cannot wait to ride in front of the passionate UK fans at his home round as he looks to repeat his last-to-third podium heroics from Donington last season. They will be joined on track this weekend by official Test Rider Niccolò Canepa, fresh from finishing second in the recent FIM EWC 8 Hours of Slovakia Ring, with the Italian hoping to continue the development of the Pata Yamaha R1 and also fight for a good result.
