We had a wonderful time at Donington Park. we enjoyed the gig and the surroundings are lovely. We get some airplane noise because of the proximity of the East Midlands Airport but overall it is a great place

The venue was selected for one of my company's Regional Forums and it proved to quite acceptable. There was easy access from the M1 and other transient routes. Plenty of good quality local hotels serving the East Midlands airport users, masses of free parking on site, helpful staff and a fairly good conference facility.

For £15.00 I was amazed, how close I could park, how much good access I had to areas around the track. Great value also met Sir Chris Hoy. This is a good day out for GT3 or similar.
