Donington Park is back in business and back under its original ownership as racing finally resumes at the crisis-hit Leicestershire circuit and the Wheatcrofts' family-run company Donington Park Racing retakes control

Great to hear the bike engines over the planes last weekend. I am sure Kevin is working hard as he promised to get the bikes back for next year. Having been to Silverstone last month for WSB - and yes the toilets were new and clean, but it cant beat Donington for trackside viewing. :)

I loved Donington as a Motorcycle racing venue, except for 2 very important things, the facilities were very poor (especially the camp-sites) and the slow last part of the circuit (Melbourne Loop) was not complimentary with the rest of the circuit. As these were put in place by the original management will these really change? :rolleyes:

Er people - don't believe this tripe. This is not good news! It's spin at it's worst. Adroit were never brought in just to do the construction - they were appointed as full-time operator, as widely publicised! Just Google their name. Wheatcroft never wanted to take the reins, nor does he have the experience/personnel/inclination to manage the site himself. All this means is the circuit will limp along in its current, barely funcional state for the forseeable future. It's another shambles in a sorry affair :rolleyes:
