Further investment at Donington Park
Donington Park has invested an additional £750,000 into circuit improvements for 2016.
The track has undergone changes at the Melbourne GP loop, where a further 250 metres of debris fencing has been installed. A new tyre wall has been fitted at Hollywood and the podium has been rebuilt. There has also been extra protection created for marshals’ posts.
A new spectator bank has been completed on the infield by the Robert’s Chicane. Track bosses are also already working on turning the area where the old hospitality units once stood into a new spectator area for 2017.
Donington has so far invested in excess of £11.5 million into regenerating the track since it reopened in 2010 following its failed British Grand Prix bid.
