It is with great regret that the directors of Donington Park Racing Limited, operators of Donington Park Circuit, have to report that, following an accident in a race for historic touring cars, the driver of car number 67 (a 1965 Mini Cooper S), Christian Devereux of Chiswick in London, succumbed to the injuries sustained at approximately 4:30pm.
