    Turning to the racing, apologies for the poor quality as I was taking these on an iPhone.

    One of the touring car races with a BTCC car going through Craner Curves.



    An Alfa WTCC car exiting Old Hairpin past Donington Hall.



    Entering McLean’s.



    A nice view of Craner Curves, Old Hairpin and then Starkeys (closest to camera).

    A FIA Group 2 BTCC Mini following a Group A Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth. The Mini later sheared its right side front stub axle and ended up nestled up against the wall where I was standing.

    Bookatrack Caterham

    Just at the back of the pits is the headquarters for Bookatrack. A big showroom and adjoining office. In a separate building just behind is the maintenance area where they service the rental cars, build customer cars and support Caterham owners.

    Of course I had to visit and pick up an order form…

    There is a huge mural in the showroom of a Bookatrack rental Caterham on circuit.



    But when you look in close you can see it is made of up lots of small images from their track day photography. I appear on this wall in more than one place – just not sure where!

    Donington Park Circuit

    A circuit with a lot of history – pre-war GP racing plus more modern Formula 1.



    It is a wonderful drivers circuit set within a natural valley bowl so lots of entertaining elevation change.




    This photo shows the back of the circuit in the bowl with the run down through the sensationally fun Craner Curves then the right into Old Hairpin before the track heads left past the old stone bridge that used to be part of Donington Hall.



    Extending the view out further, this shows Craner Curves, Old Hairpin andthen the long run through Starkeys heading back up hill.



    If you panned right then you see the run into the righthander McLean’s.
