Donington Park making improvements
American entertainment company SFX own the lease for the circuit, and they want to make major improvements which will cost £36 million (pounds) if planning permission is given the all clear.
Plans have been submitted to North West Leicestershire District Council and a meeting will be held later this month to consider the application to change the design of the track from McLeans to Redgate.
The pit-lane and paddock complexes will be moved to a new straight, and Fearnall is committed to the redevelopments despite no guarantees of hosting the British Grand Prix until at least 2016.
