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. Disappointments included the small portable screen... More

I really enjoyed the visit, looking at all the McLaren and Williams, and an excellent collection of Vanwalls. We got there just after it opened in the morning and enjoyed walking around uninterrupted with hardly a soul there. The shop didn't really offer anything which appealed. One for the F1 geeks really... http://www.donington-park.co.uk/about-donington/the-donington-grand-prix-collection/

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.

Went to this Museum late September as a Birthday Present, great display of F1 cars and world war One and Two tanks and trucks ect, ect. This museum lacked atmosphere as it was so quiet no commentary or music as you went from one display to the next. The coffee shop adjacent didn't seem to do any offers eg coffee... More

Great place to go and watch the racing. Biggest downfall is that there is not many photo opportunities due to the high and big fencing used to keep you safe. Very cold at night if camping so take plenty of warm clothing. The marshal's were very friendly and good at the job especially in the pit lane area. All in... More

Been to this circuit now for last 4 years to watch the British superbikes. It is a brilliant circuit with many great viewing points. Facilities are really good, and would recommend to anyone who enjoys racing.

Absolutely amazing weeking for the superbikes. Only problem is we was camping and its so far away from the campsite to pit lane or any of the bars and stalls. It would take a good 45 mins to walk. On the upside they did a free shuttle bus but that took 40 minutes to arrive, making us miss the main... More

We have been coming to Donington since the early eighties, mainly for motorcycle events. Organisation is brilliant to get in and out of the circuit. Bikes have there own solid area to park,with a coach as kit storage for all your biking gear if needed, for £2 a helmet all day this is a small fee to pay. The money... More
