Peter Hickman To Replace John Hopkins At Donington Park

Posted on May 11, 2012 by TwoWheelMania.

With John Hopkins out of the upcoming World Superbike race at Donington Park due to a broken foot, the rider's Crescent Suzuki team is turning to another rider to fill the void left by the former champion.

The team has tapped 24-year-old British rider Peter Hickman to replace Hopkins for the race. Hickman is a local choice who has raced at Donington Park plenty of times in British Superbike, where he currently competes for the Kawasaki team.

"I'm so happy that I've got a chance to ride with the FIXI Crescent Suzuki team this weekend," said Hickman. "It's going to be a steep learning curve, but I've got nothing to lose, so I'm really looking forward to it. I know the track, but I don't know the bike, so I'll be spending the first practice getting used to the GSX-R and how it behaves around Donington. I'd like to thank everybody in the team for giving me this chance and I really hope that I will not disappoint them."

Hopkins hopes to be back on his GSX-R by May 26, when the World Superbike heads to Hopkins' home country of America for a race at Miller Motorsports Park.
