Revitalised Donington Park next up for BTCC
A significantly revamped Donington Park is next up on the BTCC calendar (28/29 April), with spectators, drivers, teams and all other visitors set to be treated to a new-look venue.
Huge improvements have been made to the legendary East Midlands circuit over the winter months, as part of the multi-million pound investment by new owner MotorSport Vision, with many of these completed since the Season Launch Day held at the circuit three weeks ago.
One of the biggest additions is the large new restaurant, cafe and bar situated right in the heart of the paddock. The modern ‘Garage 39’, constructed in the former Paddock Suite has been designed to be the best motorsport circuit restaurant in the country, and will be open throughout the event, and late into the night with entertainment also.
Significant improvements can be found in the spectator areas too; a huge new grandstand has been built atop a raised viewing area at Hollywood, with one of the most spectacular views of any motorsport venue in the country. Fans at the Donington BTCC round will be able to take in views of pretty much all the national circuit from the grandstand, making these very much the best seats in the house.
In several of the most popular spectator areas, large new toilet blocks have also been built, finally replacing the ageing units that had stood since the circuit’s reopening in the late 1970s. These new blocks, with improved capacity and with much better disabled and baby changing facilities can be found at Hollywood, the Old Hairpin and on the infield.
Other additions and improvements include a smartened up main entrance, resurfaced internal access roads, a brand new circuit office and a fully surfaced paddock area.
BTCC fans have until midday on Thursday 26 April to purchase discounted advance tickets and make savings compared to gate prices. For full information and to book, visit https://doningtonpark.msv.com/DP-18-BTCC-1.
