Donington aim to restrict air traffic

Organizers of the 2010 British Grand Prix at Donington are looking to limit the level of air traffic flying in and out of the nearby East Midlands Airport on race day to primarily F1 traffic. Donington boss Simon Gillett said, “We are working with them to ensure we minimize their traffic," Gillett told the Loughborough Echo. We don’t necessarily have to fully close them, but we are thinking when the race is on, no one is going to be flying in or out. The idea is that at peak times the airport has exclusive use for Formula 1 and us. We’re looking to charter a lot of planes anyway. We would bring people in ourselves from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bristol, Manchester, London, France, Belgium, Germany, all over Europe."
