Donington Park 2019 race season is go! - 18 Mar 2019

Motorcycle action from the No Limits Racing club this weekend (23-24 March) will kick-start the 2019 motorsport season at Donington Park, which features more major events than ever before.

New additions this year include well-received extra rounds of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship and the British GT and BRDC British F3 Championships, meaning both will visit the circuit twice this season. 

As well as these additions, race fans will notice more key changes to the venue, which continues to undergo improvements under MotorSport Vision (MSV) operation. A new main public entrance to the paddock and improved entry to the Fogarty Esses spectator area are the main focal points, while many other detail changes will ensure Donington continues to flourish for spectators, track users and officials. 

Racing takes place on every weekend from now until the end of October, except for the middle weekend in June when the massive Download Festival takes over the venue with tens of thousands of rock fans expected once more. 

The major international highlight again comes courtesy of the only UK round of the World Superbike Championship on a new summer date (5-7 July), with some of the world's top motorcycle racers set to compete three times over the course of the weekend courtesy of a much-improved event format. 

The first major event of the year comes on the final weekend of April (27/28) with the annual visit of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, which is swiftly followed by the ever-popular Donington Historic Festival on 3-5 May. Another historic highlight is the return of the Masters Race Weekend on 8-9 June, while retro bikes also have a dedicated event courtesy of the Donington Classic Motorcycle Festival on 3-4 August. 

The first visit of the year from the Bennetts British Superbike Championship comes on 24-26 May, returning to the National Circuit after a long absence with a special triple-header race format, while its second visit, this time on the Grand Prix circuit, takes place during the crucial 'Showdown' phase on 4-6 October. 

British GT and BRDC British F3's first visit comes on 22-23 June, while the traditional 'Donington Decider' will return on 14-15 September, with champions for both series likely to be settled. 

One of the major family highlights, the all-things-trucking celebration of Convoy in the Park, returns for a third year on 10-11 August, and will again feature multiple races from the British Truck Racing Association Championship, as well as gargantuan displays and entertainment areas around the venue.

Between all this are numerous national-level events for cars and motorcycles, as well as a number of car shows during the summer.
