Donington Park has provided the setting for the BTCC Season Launch every year since 2013. The sweeping corners and fast back section always produce great racing, as the Leicestershire venue continues to build on its long and illustrious history. With picturesque views and huge spectator areas, Donington is undoubtedly one of the fans’ favourite places to watch the BTCC. Within striking distance from Birmingham, Derby, Leicester, Nottingham and beyond via easy access to the M1, Donington reaches a huge fan base in the heart of England.
First visited by the BTCC back in 1977, Donington has been the scene of a host of memorable touring car moments – 2013 saw two incredible milestones for Jason Plato and Matt Neal, who surpassed 400 and 500 races respectively.
