Donington Museum - Grand Prix Collection of Tom Wheatcroft

Donington Museum. A tour along the Grand Prix Collection of Tom Wheatcroft. Unfortunately, this great museum will close after November 4, 2018. You find a huge collection of Formula 1 cars, motorcycles and WWII vehicles in the Donington Museum. They're collected by the late Tom Wheatcroft, who founded the museum. In the museum is also a tribute to F1 driver Roger Williamson, who sadly died during the 1973 Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort. Also a lot of Williams and McLaren F1 cars, among which the 1993 McLaren Ford with which Ayrton Senna won the European Grand Prix at Donington Park. It was the only Formula 1 race at the Donington Circuit, and it would became a legendary rain race. In the summer of 2018 I made a Circuit Tour through England. One of the circuits I visited was Donington Park, the oldest operational circuit in the UK. Before I went to the circuit I visited the Donington Museum with the Grand Prix Collection of Tom Wheatcroft in the morning. Unfortunately I heard later in 2018 that the Donington Museum will close forever. So I'm happy I visited and filmed it. Thanks for watching this video.
