IMPORTANT: Please read the sections below carefully before completing this application form. Forms not fully completed will be disregarded. Please note that the completion and submission of this form does not guarantee accreditation approval.

All applications MUST be supported by the following:

  • A letter of commission, this must be from an editor of a recognised publication or media organisation on headed paper and must include a commitment to publish a report and/or pictures of the event

Please note: Websites/electronic media will be accredited at the discretion of Donington Park. Websites must be current and producing original editorial content. Those reproducing press releases will not be considered. Applications on behalf of personal social media feeds, social media pages, or personal websites will be disregarded immediately.

Without the above supporting documentation, the application will NOT be considered. If your application is successful, your media pass is generally posted in the week leading up to the event. 


The deadline for all media accreditation applications is on the Tuesday prior to the event you are required to attend. Any application received after this time may be discarded.


If you are required to attend a general test day at Donington Park as a member of the media, please email in advance of the day. You will also be required to bring a letter of accreditation from your commisioning editor/director relating to that specific test session, as well as a copy of your public liability insurance. Please note only genuine media are permitted to go trackside at general test dates, and photographers without editorial letters/public liability insurance will not be permitted to sign on.
