After being mismanaged during an attempt to host the British Grand Prix, Donington Park has been granted a new race licence after inspections by the sport’s governing bodies. FIA and Motorsport Association representatives visited the circuit yesterday and agreed that the track had been improved to the point where it could host both national and international race events. This returns four wheeled racing to Donington after two wheeled racing was returned with the granting of an ACU licence.
The track was restored from its broken condition after the failed bid at the British Grand Prix with a £2 million investment to improve and repair the track. There are changes to the Esses and an extension of the straight at Goddards corner.
The grand re-opening happens next weekend (3rd to 5th of September) with the Masters Historic Racing Festival.
