Exulted Lord High Moderator of the Apex
Picked up this piece of sad news from the CTA feed. Tom Wheatcroft worked wonders to put Donnington back on the motorsport map and create one of the top three circuits for international motorsport in this country. It's such a shame that he should pass away within such a short space of time after the failure to secure the British GP at his track. With Donnington Ventures ltd in massive finacial trouble and now the circuit owner passing away it could be the end of Donnington as a racing circuit. That however is for another day, as I'm sure all motorsport fans will be sending their condolences to the Wheatcroft family.
