  • A great weekend

    29 March 2011 by sue bostock

    What a great weekend I had at Donington WSB. Tickets at reasonable prices and laid back, low key security on the camp site. I was able to sleep in my van and wasn't forced into putting a tent up in another location. Well done to Red Security - safe but not over powering security. Fantastic racing and an all round enjoyable weekend. "Just one thing spoils it. The price of a cup of tea or...

  • Donington Park tank range

    26 March 2011 by Robert Taylor

    I went to Donington Park yesterday. As a pensioner I can no longer justify the cost of race day tickets but I like to go on Friday practice days, it's cheaper and less crowded so I get a good view of the riders. I've been going to Donington since the late 80s and used to love the place, but I was amazed to see the mess left by the antics of the last management team. It reminded me of the...
