Kirk Rothwell - Marketing & Media Manager
I have worked at Donington Park for over three years now, firstly as the Marketing & Communications Executive and then more recently as Marketing & Media Manager. Within that period my main responsibility has been to drive and execute Donington Park’s marketing plans across all departments in accordance with the corporate objectives.
Management of the marketing communications plans and budgets for large scale international motor racing events to ensure maximum engagement with the target audience and key stakeholders whilst keeping within the strict campaign budgets. Ownership of the Donington Park social media platforms and responsible for growing the followers to over 20,000 as well as continued development of a new website that now receives over 62,000 unique visitors each month.
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.
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!
