Motorsport is set to return to Donington Park following a successful track inspection by both the FIA and the Motor Sports Association.

The venue was left in a state of disrepair following the failed bid to secure the British Grand Prix with new leaseholder the Adroit Group having invested in work to bring the circuit back to life.

One of the final stages of that work was a visit from both the FIA and MSA late last week to inspect the work carried out, with permission having now been granted for racing to resume.

"I would like to thank everyone who has expressed messages of support through the difficult months," Steve Watton, operations director for the newly formed Donington Park Limited company set up by Adroit to run the venue, told BBC Leicestershire.

"But Donington is back. I now ask the many British motor racing fans out there to show their support by coming to see our races."

Donington is due to host a historic racing event on the first weekend of September in what will be its first race meeting for a year.
