Donnington Grand Prix Collection

The Donington Grand Prix Collection is, quite simply, the largest showcase of Grand Prix racing cars in the world
Incorporating the Wheatcroft Military Collection in the first two halls plus four halls, with over 130 exhibits, illustrate the history of motorsport from the turn of the 20th Century, where visitors can get close to the cars driven by such famous names as Nuvolari, Mansell, Prost, Moss, Fangio and Stewart.

The largest collection of Williams F1 cars outside of its factory in Oxfordshire
This is an incredibly rare opportunity to get up close and personal to machines driven to several world championships by legendary drivers. Cars date back to the early 1980s, through to the dominant 1990s and more recent machines too, as driven by the likes of Nigel Mansell, Keke Rosberg, Nelson Piquet, Damon Hill and more. Highlights here include the very first F1 car Ayrton Senna ever drove, as well as the 1992 machine which carried Mansell to his World Championship.

One of the Donington Collection’s latest additions is the World’s largest collection of Force India machinery on display to the public

Two recent additions from Force India include the famous machine that was driven by Giancarlo Fisichella to Force India’s first ever podium at Spa Francorchamps in 2009 as well as the 2011 car that was driven by Scotsman Paul di Resta. A total of six Force Indias are on display, including a 2008 model, another 2009 car which took Adrian Sutil to fourth place at Monza, a 2010 car which raced in all 19 races that year scoring a best result of fifth with Sutil, as well as another 2011 machine, which powered Sutil to a best result of sixth at the Nurburgring and at Interlagos.
