Donnington Park Race Circuit

Donnington Park circuit is located in Castle Donington in North West Leicestershire and was opened in 1931.

The circuit uses paths and tracks at the front of Donnington Hall inthe parkland. To begin with the circuit was only used for motorbikes but by 1933 the track had been extended and re-surfaced and was now able to have cars on it.

During the Second World War the land was used as a military vechicle depot and the circuit was closed.

The track was finally re-built and opened in 1977 but without the Melbourne hairpin (the section you can see on the Grand OPrix circuit below).
The loop was finally added in 1985 giving Donbnigton Park two circuits.

In 2004 the track had £5 million invested into it with re-surfacing of the track and also the pits and paddock being re-developed and was opened in March 2006.

Donnington is the home of the British MotoGP (British Motorcycle Grand Prix).
