Donington Park Track Day Information

Donington race track is a circuit of two halves - a very technical series of sweeping bends, followed by a series of short straights separated by slow corners. The section through Craner Curves and the Old Hairpin is a good place to experience the difference between world-class riders and the also-rans, and the Melbourne Hairpin is a favourite for last-minute out-braking action. The circuit variations include and National and Grand Prix layout on which you can take part in car and bike track days. These are run at various time throughout the year and are a great way to experience your vehicle on a real race circuit.

To take your car or bike on the track, the vehicle must comply with the noise restrictions that are in place.

Donington Park Track Days

Situated in the heart of the East Midlands, Donington Park is a major international, Grand Prix class, motor racing venue that hosts both own car and bike track days and driving experience events. It is perhaps best known as the site where Ayrton Senna roared to victory in the 1993 European Grand Prix.

The Donington Park circuit dates back to 1931 when Fred Craner, a garage owner from Derby and amateur motorcycle racer, persuaded a local farmer to allow motorcycle racing on roads around his estate.

In 1939, with the outbreak of WWII, the British Army took control of the site, and racing did not restart until 1977, after the acquisition of the land by Tom Wheatcroft, another local businessman. The original Melbourne Corner was not in the area acquired in 1971 and the current Melbourne Loop was added in 1985.

Many of our customers who book for our Own Car and Bike Track Days always look forward to taking on the challenges of the loop, but it’s equally enjoyable for our range of driving experience packages in Supercars, American Trucks, and also for our Arrive and Drive days where you can take to either a Ginetta G40 or a Caterham Roadsport SV. Listings for all our forthcoming track days can be found in our calendar above.
