Donington Park is delighted to offer the opportunity for you to bring your car along to this historic circuit and experience some hot laps around the National Circuit. Tackle the roller coaster that is Craner Curves and the Old Hairpin before you head over the blind right-hander at Coppice Corner. An opportunity not to be missed.

All drivers and passengers must wear crash helmets before being permitted on the track. Helmets are not provided by Donington Park.

If you are in an open car (e.g. a Caterham) then you will need to wear a full face helmet or alternatively, an open face helmet will be ok provided you also wear eye protection goggles.

Your helmet must be a proper motorsport or road helmet. You will not be allowed out on track with a skiing or skateboarding helmet.

Hire a Caterham

If you don't want to use your own car then you can hire one of 10 Caterham 7 Superlights from Bookatrack. Hire of the cars is exclusive - meaning you don't share it with anyone else during the day. Additionally, we don't insist on having an instructor sat in the car all day either.

We will have a professional photographer available on each date from Xtreme Sports Photography so that you can capture your amazing experience as you drive around this legendary ciruit. Click here for more information.
