If the Midlands is the heart of England then Donington Park is the place that makes that heart beat a little faster. The motorsports racing circuit has been a focus for engine-loving adrenaline addicts since the 1930s.
Visitors travelling to the Midlands to hear the roar of the engines and the heady aroma of high-octane fuel will find the Radisson Blu Hotel, East Midlands Airport is in a perfect location for a visit to the track; the high-quality hotel is a little more than three miles from the exciting race course.
A packed calender of events
The Donington Park circuit held its first race in 1931 and since then it has been the centre of a vibrant motorsports scene. These days the vehicles tearing round the track are very different to those vintage motorcycles but the thrills are just the same.
From superbikes to formula four speed-machines and enormously powerful racing trucks, there is something for everyone at Donington Park. There is even the opportunity to take to the iconic racetrack on pedal bikes on special evenings.
Take to the track
Visitors to the track who find simply watching is a little too passive will find there are many opportunities to hit the tarmac themselves during the many track days that are held at Donington Park. Would-be racers also have the opportunity to hire iconic sports cars to try out the famous course.
With an exceptional location between attractions like Donington Park and important urban locations like the City of Leicester, the Radisson Blu Hotel, East Midlands Airport is the natural choice for visitors to the area. This superb East Midlands Airport hotel enjoys fantastic transport connections which put guests right in the midst of this exciting area.
