Donington Park awarded Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence

World-renowned motor racing circuit Donington Park has been awarded Trip Advisor’s ‘Certificate of Excellence’ after receiving an average visitor rating of 4.5 out of 5. The news comes after a renewed focus on providing an excellent guest experience at the circuit – including the development of a new radio station, a circuit-dedicated app and work to improve the spectator viewing experience. 

By receiving the Certificate of Excellence, Donington Park now holds a place in the top 10% of businesses listed on the Trip Advisor website, with the certification only awarded to establishments that consistently receive outstanding traveller reviews. To qualify for this certificate, an overall rating of 4 or higher must be consistently achieved.  

Kirk Rothwell, Media Manager at Donington Park, said: “Visitor experience is extremely important to us here at Donington Park. We are continually looking for ways to both maintain and improve our facilities, and there are many steps that have been put in place to ensure that we create a good experience for all our guests.  

“One of these such initiatives is the launch of Donington FM – a radio station with accompanying mobile app that offers both fans and spectators a new way to follow everything Donington. This was developed in response to customer feedback, which informed us that races could sometimes be difficult to follow using the tannoy system alone.”  

Donington Park also regularly plays host to a range of community events, including a recent residents’ open evening which allowed members of the community to understand more about the race circuit and its operations. There are also a number of family focused events, including Run and Cycle in the Park; an opportunity for members of the public to run, jog, walk or cycle away from the hustle and bustle of main roads, while taking in the surroundings of one of the UK’s most famous motorsport venues.  

Next season, Donington Park is set to unveil its infield spectator and outdoor exhibition area following the multi-million pound project to reinstate, re-shape and landscape the site. This promises to offer a fantastic spectator experience, in the areas around the Old Hairpin, Starkeys Bridge, McLeans, Coppice, along the main Straight, and into both the Fogarty Esses (Grand Prix circuit) and Roberts Chicane.
