Usually go to bike races at the circuit such as British Superbikes. Not many grandstands but easy viewing around the circuit and usually free pit access. Pricing is reasonable and usually parking is easy and well organised unlike other circuits like silverstone where it took five hours to even get out of the car park at the MotoGP .

Been here so many times since I can remember (network q rally was my first trip). Great place to watch whatever you are here for. From the infield banking you can see pretty much half of the track. The outside of the old hairpin is one of the best view points as you can see up the craner curves. Decent... More

I bought my boyfriend a driving experience for our anniversary and he enjoyed that experience so much that later that night he wrote off his Toyota Yaris because he clearly thought he was still driving a Lamborghini. Back to the actual race course - he said it was a good circuit, fast downhill straight where he reached 184mph. Overall good... More

I have visited this attraction several times and am never bored. My latest visit was with two Grand children, Grandpa received much praise and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Obviously, the racing cars are paramount, but there is so much more to see, the latest acquisitions are German WWII half track personnel carriers, a field gun, ammunition trolleys and a... More

I have been recently to the model fair. IT was great and had a good choice of models. Ive been to the donington car museum, which displays a wide range of cars from F1 to Normal road cars. I visit Download most years and it seems really well organised.

I attended an auction in the Donington Exhibition centre and was impressed by the size of the place and the facilities. It was an ideal location for a classic car auction and refreshments were readily available. I will be back again.

I bought my partner for her 50th a driving experience at Donington to drive 3 super cars, and she loved it. It's me that's disappointed as I expected her to drive on the actual track, this is not the case. I have relooked at the web site and this experience is under the button track experience, but you don't go... More
