The circuit is located close to Junction 23a of the M1, but the M42/A42 and A50 also meet at this point. From junction 23a (junction 24 if travelling from the North) follow the A453 towards Donington Park and East Midlands Airport.

Follow the road round to the right and the Heritage Loop will be on your left. Carry straight on towards the Launch Pad building and the Tarmac Lake is the area in front on you.


A light lunch and all day refreshments are provided for all participants. These are based at either the Launch Pad building or our Caterham showroom - please see final details for confirmation of loacation.
