Racing at embattled Donington Park is back on track, after the 2010 British grand prix venue recently lost its license.

Racing at embattled Donington Park is back on track, after the 2010 British grand prix venue recently lost its license.

The UK governing body Motor Sport Association rescinded the credential because F1 renovations at Donington reduced run-off at a high-speed section.

But track boss Simon Gillett said at the weekend that planned revisions at the circuit will be inspected formally on Thursday, thus reinstating planned events including the British Touring Car Championship race later this month.

"We are bending over backwards to ensure safe racing is on track at Donington Park as quickly as possible," he is quoted as saying by the Derby Telegraph.

Meanwhile, a track spokesman said the issue was never related to the plans for the formula one race.

"Work for the grand prix in July 2010 has always been on schedule," he insisted.
