2011 PGR F1 Santander British Grand Prix

Round 09 | Donington Park Circuit | 16/01/2012 - 22/01/2012 |

Donington Park is a motorsport circuit near Castle Donington in Leicestershire, England.
Originally part of the Donington Hall estate, it was created as a racing circuit during the pre-war period when the German Silver Arrows were battling for the European Championship.

Used as a military vehicle storage depot during World War II, it fell into disrepair until bought by local construction entrepreneur Tom Wheatcroft. Revived under his ownership in the 1970s, it became the favoured home of the British round of the Moto GP motorcycling championship.
