Donington Park: The Pioneers book nominated for major award

Friday, September 27 2019

Donington Park: The Pioneers, the definitive history of one of the country's best-loved racing venues has been selected as a finalist in the Publication of the Year category at the 2019 Historic Motoring Awards.

The book, put together after extensive research by Donington historian John Bailie, was launched just under 12 months ago and received excellent reviews, picking up the 'Book of the Month' accolade in many automotive magazines.

Over 348 pages, the book covers the entire history of Donington Park, including its creation in 1931 as well as the many characters associated with the circuit over the past nine decades. It also includes hundreds of unique photographs, documents, maps, diagrams, and then-and-now images that show how much the venue has evolved from it's legendary pre-war years.

The award winners will be announced at a gala night that will see the celebration of a broad selection of categories, selected by Octane magazine and an international panel of judges. The presentation evening will be hosted by broadcaster Steve Rider, and will take place at the Rosewood Hotel in London on Thursday 17 October.

Donington Park, The Pioneers is available online priced at £85 from several bookshops, including the MotorSport Magazine online store, Chaters Bookshop and at Hortons Books.
