Donington Park

British Grand Prix
The original Donington track was opened in 1931, and initially used for motorcycle races. The circuit was closed in 1939 due to World War 2, when it became a military vehicle depot. In the early 1970s the circuit was bought by Tom Wheatcroft, who funded the rebuilding of the track, which was re-opened in 1977.
