Trophies

Over the course of a season we award several trophies to winners of differing classes and disciplines.

Here you can see a brief description for what it is awarded and the list of previous winners.



Wheatcroft Trophy

The Tom Wheatcroft Memorial Trophy is presented by the DPRAC in memory of our late president and Donington Park founder, Tom Wheatcroft. It was decided that the trophy would be presented alternately to bikes and cars.

It was first presented in 2010 to Kevin Wheatcroft for his determination on re-establishing Donington Park to it's former glory.

The trophy itself is kept as one of the exhibits of The Donington Grand Prix Collection and is viewable by visitors year round and the winners themselves each receive a silver plaque.
