Donington Park — The prestigious British Touring Car Championship, British and World Superbikes, GT endurance cars, and thoroughbred Formula 1 cars, are all regular attractions at Donington. Track days are also a big attraction here; this is when the amateur can take his or her car or bike out for a spin.
Access around the track is good, but if you want the good spectator spots, such as Craner Curves, get there first as they do get crowded, even when it’s pouring with rain. The grandstand seats are some of the best in the country in terms of track visibility.
