Been to Donnington many times for various races and events. Yes it does need a bit of money spending on it to bring it up to national circuit level. But that is the beauty of this iconic circuit.

Donnington Race Track is a very well maintained, clean, tidy and quality track. Facilities for teams racing are very good and finding your way around the venue is easy thanks to good signage. On race days or themed days out, staff do a good job of safety and organisation. Well done and keep up the good work.

Came here to complete the Great Donington 10k and thought it was extremely well organised. From parking the car to the actual event everything was like clockwork. The facilities were excellent, the course was fantastic and all of the staff on hand were superb. I can't speak highly enough of the venue and I can't wait to come back and... More

A venue for all "Petrol heads" with cars, motorbikes, sidecars, trucks and free trial runs of the Formula E electric race car sensations with their own unique sound. The park is the off season storage and developement centre. The museum is very good with an permanent exhibition of previous formula one race cars, the biggest private collection of its kind....

We visited the Donington Park motor museum and found a great display of Formula 1 cars. If you are interested in motor racing, this is well worth a visit. Great Ayrton Senna memorabilia plus lots more. Also a very interesting collection of military vehicles. The only disappointment was not being able to see any part of the track (even though... More

Donington Park is getting back to its best after it was butchered horribly by the last management team. It is now a green and pleasant land again, with beautifully mown lawns to lie on as you watch the bikes racing round the awesome track. I really can't understand people criticising the viewing areas, as the Old Harpin, Hollwood and Craner... More
