Track of The Month – May 2021

 Donington Park National – UK

This May, The Race Centre’s Track of the Month is the Donington Park National circuit in the UK.

A 2-mile circuit, Donington Park is the oldest racetrack in the UK still in use, with its first race taking place in 1931. It was built in 1931 and became the second motorsport venue in the UK after Brooklands. The circuit’s combination of fast corners and elevation changes, both epitomised by the notorious Craner Curves, make Donington a tough circuit for a driver, both technically and physically.

Come to The Race Centre this month to see if you are up to the challenge of Donington Park.

Take a look below for an onboard lap of Donington Park in an MSA Formula car!

We hope you enjoy this fantastic circuit and the cars we have chosen!
