Leicestershire's Donington Park is one of the UK's best known motor racing circuits and hosted its first event in 1931 - a motorcycle race on the narrow lanes of the Donington Park Estate. The circuit was expanded and became home to Grand Prix racing before the Second World War in 1939 saw the venue become a military vehicle depot.
