Donington has seen its fair share of 500 GP and MotoGP history and the ‘Greatest Of All Time’, Valentino Rossi rates this as one of his favourite circuits. Troubled times with the business adminstration behind the scenes resulted in the loss of MotoGP recently, but now back in the hands of the family who originally developed the site, Donington is once again a world class venue.
The chance to ride the same circuit as true legends of the sport draws many to this prestigious track with its mix of fast flowing and slower corners. Donington is a physically demanding circuit that rewards smoothness and concentration and both the world famous Craner Curves, which swoops down rollercoaster fashion, and the blind right of Coppice require more than a little nerve. Off the famous tarmac you’ll find all the facilities you’d expect of a circuit that caters to the elite of world motorsport.
