Driving Experiences on the Heritage Loop
What makes the Donington Park Heritage Loop so ideal for novice level driving experiences and our range of Supercar driving days is the forgiving nature of its layout.
The event operators are able to adjust the braking and turning points on the open parts of the track, using cones to suit the level of ability of the drivers, all whilst getting to drive exclusive marques from Ferrari, McLaren, Aston Martin, Audi and BMW amongst others.
There is also plenty of runoff at the hairpin end of the loop, which increases the safety of the driver and instructor. The loop is purely a training circuit, and it is a common mistake that participants who see Donington Park on their ticket believe that they will be driving on the main circuit.
If you have a booking and are unsure which circuit you are on, we advise calling the number on your confirmation email. Our Customer Service team are very knowledgeable about both tracks so will be able to assist you further on this.
