Donington is the third of the big players on the UK circuit scene along with Brands Hatch and Silverstone. Thanks to owner and ultimate enthusiast, Tom Wheatcroft, Donington even played host to a Grand Prix in 1993. It was a memorable one too, with Ayrton Senna taking perhaps his greatest ever victory in appalling April conditions.So Donington is another circuit where following your GP heroes is a certainty. It's also one of the best tracks in the UK. Undulating through rolling fields it has character despite its open parkland setting. It also has excellent facilities, not to mention a challenging layout that is dominated by the Craner Curves.
