Circuit Biography

The 2022 campaign sees Donington Park once again host the BTCC season-opener, having set the scene for the penultimate event of 2021 following a calendar revision prior to the season getting underway.

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, while the most recent campaign saw Dan Rowbottom wrap up the Jack Sears Trophy title in the penultimate event of the year.
