“Nice circuit.”
Review of Donington Park

Reviewed May 10, 2013

We were at Donington last year for the British Superbikes, and were fortunate enough to be guests of one of the sidecar teams, whose hospitality was excellent and provided a great place to explore the circuit. While it's a good circuit with great views, it's not as friendly or photogenic as Oulton Park or Cadwell Park, but the walk round the circuit is a good one as the service road circles the entire track. Quality merchandising, much more than other BSB rounds, but the paddock is a little less accessible and open in comparison to others, but that didn't detract from the day, you're still being buzzed by riders whizzing round on pitbikes and scooters and the atmosphere is good. The only issues I had, was that photography was difficult due to the high safety fencing that surrounds the entire circuit, which made things difficult. And the infield, on which work was started when they were going to host F1, but lost the deal, remains unfinished and is a bit of an eyesore, but I understand that that's going to be sorted soon. Other than that, we'll be going again this year!

Went to see the Touring Cars, its a brilliant circuit saw some very exciting racing. Lots of proper toilets on site, lots of catering units for the event - a fair variety of foods. There are only a couple of grandstands so a cushion or chair is essential if you dont want a numbum from sitting on the ground all day. I look forward to a return visit.

Been going to Donington Park race circuit for year and always have great time, however the traffic problems when leaving the circuit are some of the worst from any race circuit in the UK.

Donington Park is very popular for many things, not just racing, but music festivals like Download aswell! I have been to Donington Park a lot and a member of my family used to work there a while back, so we know it well. It's a great day out and on school trips when I have been people are always so helpful there and really kind, I'd definatley recommend it for a good day out to go and see the racing, or to go to a festival, enjoy!
