British GT – Weekend At Donington Park
British GT features some of the nation's most impressive race cars; the crème de la crème of supercars from the world’s most renowned car manufacturers. For the past 25 years since its inception, the British GT championship has been one of the most unmissable motorsport events on the European racing calendar.
Starting out in Oulton Park in late March, the British GT Championship takes place over several weekends, on some of Britain’s most popular tracks, including Silverstone and Brands Hatch. Once again, the year’s two-hour endurance finale decider was held on the Donington Park circuit on the 23rd of September. In this 2018 edition, the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 and McLaren 570S GT4 were crowned as the British touring car championship winners in their respective classes.
The British GT title was claimed by Flick Haigh and Jonny Adam who finished 4th at the #DoningtonDecider, racing in the Aston Martin Vantage V12 GT3. Flick Haigh is the first woman to win the British GT championship. Whilst Jonny Adam claimed his third GT title after winning in 2015 and 2016. The duo only needed a 6th place finish to guarantee a place at the podium end of the season.
Located near Castle Donington at the intersection of Derbyshire and Leicestershire and only a short three-minute drive from East Midlands Airport, the Donington Park Race Circuit was the first ever permanent park circuit in all of England. Steeped in history, the track has recently undergone major restoration with MSV taking over the track last year.
Apart from the GT championships last weekend, Donington Park is also home to several of the most prestigious events on both the national and international motorsports’ events calendar. The FIM Superbike World Championship, the Bennetts British Superbike Championship and Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship are firm favourites. Other popular events include the BRDC British F3, British Truck Racing, the Donington Historic Festival, the Classic Motorcycle Festival and the driving experiences that we host here at Donington.
Once a year, we trade in the race watching for rocking out at the Download Festival. This rock music festival is one of Donington's annual staple events, attracting thousands of fans from all over.
