The iconic Donington Park motor racing circuit hosts national and international motorsport racing throughout the summer months.
Donington Park was the first permanent park circuit in England and held its first motorcycle race in 1931 on the narrow lanes of the Donington Hall Estate. In 1933 the track was widened, made permanent and became a venue for Grand Prix car racing. Today, visitors can watch a range of high octane motorsport racing throughout the summer, from endurance and sports car racing through to superbikes.
While you’re at Donington Park, why not check out the Donington Grand Prix Collection which houses the largest collection of McLaren and Williams racing cars in the world (outside of their respective factories), and the only complete collection of Vanwalls.
The Donington Grand Prix Collection showcases a large collection of Grand Prix racing cars, with four halls and over 130 exhibits illustrating the history of motorsport from the turn of the 20th Century. Visitors can get up close and personal with the cars driven by famous names such as Nuvolari, Mansell, Prost, Moss, Fangio and Stewart.
