The popular Donington Historic Festival (2-4 May) is expanding on and off circuit in 2015 and the Classic Motorcycle Festival (7-9 August) is set for its third edition in 2015, and also returning is the family-friendly British Truck Racing Championship (25-26 July).

New major events at the circuit for 2015 include the British Superkart Grand Prix on 6-7 June, and the Masters Festival (4-5 July), featuring the FIA World Sportscar Masters, as well as a four-hour historic endurance race.

Further to this expanded feature race line-up, Donington will host a huge variety of national car and bike race meetings, with the total amount of events confirmed at over 30 throughout the year.

Tickets for all major events are on sale shortly, but Donington Season Passes, which permit entry to all events, either two wheel or four, are now available for purchase, offering great savings on buying individual tickets for each event. Two wheel and four wheel passes are priced at £149 each, with the full season combined pass available for £199. Entry to MotoGP is not included with season passes.

Donington Park Managing Director Christopher Tate commented: “We are all here delighted to be able to reveal the full 2015 calendar, for what is shaping up to be an extremely exciting and busy season ahead. The return of MotoGP is particularly exciting with the strong contingent of British riders taking on huge global stars like Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez, and this of course will be the only time UK fans will be able to see them race on home soil next year.

“World Superbikes is always a huge crowd-puller too, and boasts an impressive field of international riders with another hoped-for British winner.  With the opening round of British Superbikes and the hugely popular Classic Motorcycle Festival returning again, Donington Park will be the venue of choice for bike racers and fans in 2015.

“Of course, Donington is renowned for delivering fantastic four wheel events too, and with British Touring Cars, the Donington Historic Festival, British GT, Trucks, Superkarts and a new Masters Festival, as well as this wide variety of national race meetings, not forgetting renewed FIA Formula E testing and our hectic weekly track day and testing schedule, I have no doubt that Donington Park will continue to lead the way in 2015.”
