Sizzling summer of motorsport still to come at Donington Park!
The summer at Donington Park is kicking into gear with some fantastic events still to look forward to in the coming months, including trucks, motorcycles, rallying and supercars!
One of Donington’s most popular family events, the British Truck Racing Championship has been revamped this year, with a huge number of off track activities to look forward to as part of the Convoy in the Park event on 22-23 July.
As well as a massive on track line-up of truck racing from five-tonne beasts that hit speeds of up to 100mph, there will be family entertainment in the form of live music, show truck processions, an outdoor cinema, as well as stunts, caravan smashes, fun zones and even world record attempts!
Just two weeks later, the Donington Classic Motorcycle Festival returns for the fifth successive year (4-6 August). This is one of Europe’s biggest celebrations of motorcycling, with hundreds of bikes in action with almost 50 races from the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club.
As well as the thrilling on track action from bikes from as far back as the 1940s, there will be a mixture of huge display areas, parades and star guests, with this year’s guest of honour being 1998 British Grand Prix winner Simon Crafar and festival regular Steve Parrish.
Rallying then returns to Donington Park with the Dukeries Rally on 20 August. Expect another full entry list of 80 cars to engage in gravel spitting, tyre squealing action as cars take on the challenge of the Donington circuit and surrounding areas, for one of the more unique events of the year!
Supercars and stars of the future then head to Donington on 23-24 September for the final rounds of the British GT and BRDC British F3 Championships. British GT has rapidly become one of the world’s top sports car series, with a sensational crop of supercars from the likes of Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche and Lamborghini doing battle for the championship title.
Scores will also be settled in the BRDC British F3 Championship, where an international line-up of drivers will be looking to propel themselves to F1 stardom and join the likes of Daniel Ricciardo, Ayrton Senna and Mika Hakkinen as F3 winners!
With all the above highlights to look forward to, as well as numerous car shows and great value club race events, Donington Park is the place to be this summer!
