Kirk Rothwell - Marketing & Communications Executive
My Donington Park career started in March 2011, when I became the new Marketing & Communications Executive. I look after the marketing plan for our major events and the other circuit activities as well as taking care of the media accreditation process and the media representatives.
I am also responsible for keeping the Donington Park website up to date and post regular comments on our Facebook and Twitter accounts along with race reports/results over the event weekends. On the event days, you’ll most likely find me in the Media Suite next to Race Control or organising the podium ceremony for the races.
I have always had a keen interest in motor racing and follow most of the 4 wheel championships, so I was extremely pleased to land my ‘dream job’ at this legendary circuit. I was lucky enough to work for the Motorsport Industry Association during my university placement year back in 2004 and have been itching to get back into the exciting world of motorsport ever since.
Out of work, I like to play golf and go mountain biking and having played other sports when I was younger, I am now happy to watch football, cricket and rugby matches from the comfort of my living room sofa!
My favourite sandwich filling is chicken & bacon mayo.

Louise Price – Marketing Coordinator
I feel very lucky to be able to say that I have landed the ‘dream job’ at a track which has so much history and character to it. As the Marketing Coordinator, I support the Marketing & Communications Executive to implement the marketing plan for all the major events at the track. This will include keeping everyone up-to-date via our Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as updating the website with the latest news.
My passion for motorsport started when I was younger as family members have raced both bikes and sidecars in the past. My interest is mainly in bike racing, particularly MotoGP, World Superbikes, British Superbikes and Motocross, all of which I try to get to as often as possible. I also volunteer as the PR and Social Media Officer for the British Sidecar Championship which has given me a great insight to the world of motorsport and only heightened my desire to work within the industry.
Out of work, I enjoy socialising with friends and family. I also love to relax at home and watch films, especially a good action or comedy.
My favourite sandwich filling is smoked salmon and cream cheese!
