what races take place at Donington Park?

In 2023 there is a good line up and variety of race events which are taking place at Donington. The biggest of these are two rounds of the British Touring Car Championship, two rounds of the the British Superbike Championship and one round of the FIM World Superbike Championship.

In addition to the headline events there are a huge number of club events held at Donington. Racing clubs such as the 750MC, CSCC,  BRSCC, No Limits and more all hold multiple events on both the National and GP circuits throughout the year.

Formula 1 does not race at Donington anymore. F1 only took place at Donington once in 1993 when Senna completed his incredible lap of the gods at the start of the race.

If you are heading to Donington as a spectator, driver or team member, make sure you check out our complete guide to Donington Park circuit before you go.

Formula E Donington Park

When the Formula E series first came about, it was mandatory for the teams to be based at Donington from 2014 to 2017. This is where the headquarters of the championship was, and also the workshop spaces for the 10 initial teams.

For the first few years pre-season testing was conducted at Donington. However the fast, flowing circuit was not very representative of most of the tracks the series raced on which were almost all street circuits. By the end of 2017 a number of teams had vacated their workshops at Donington and moved elsewhere.

Formula E does not race at Donington Park, and whilst the headquarters are based there now most teams have moved elsewhere.

2023 events - headline races

In 2023 the headline Donington Park events take place across both the National and Grand Prix circuit layouts. Some of these visit the track just once, whilst others have two rounds at Donington.

Below is a list of the headline racing events and their dates in 2023. You will see that this list contains a mixture of the pure racing events and more car show orientated events such as Tunerfest, which will have some on-track action as well as a lot of off-track entertainment in the paddock area.
