Donington Park


Donington Park

Donington Park is one of the premier racetracks in the country, for many years hosting the British Grand Prix, and now home to a whole host of motorsports from the World Superbike Championship to the GB3 and GB4 events for aspiring Formula 1 drivers.

Donington also offers a range of driving experiences for those who want to test their skills and is the home to the UK’s best hard rock and heavy metal festival, Download, which rocks the circuit every June.

If you’re looking for a special day out, then their driving experiences are the ideal treat. Junior drivers can take their first driving lesson from the age of 11 years old with YoungDrive. They will be taught the basics of driving by one of the elite team of highly trained instructors within the confines of the race circuit, creating a safe and stress-free environment, perfect for their first taste of driving.

For those thrillseekers, then the BMW M4 Master allows you to flex the muscles of the mighty BMW. Alongside a professional racing driver, you'll learn how to squeeze out all 510 horsepower from the 3-litre, BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine to improve your times on this legendary race circuit.

They also offer you the chance to take your own vehicle out for a spin round the track with their car and bike trackdays. Whether it’s just the family car or a high performance vehicle, take a drive round the legendary track and experience Donington first-hand!
