Donington COO Gill steps down
Donington Park’s chief operating officer Lee Gill has ended his involvement with the circuit and the company that runs it, autosport.com has learned.
Just two months after it was announced that Donington Park had poached the British Grand Prix from Silverstone after agreeing a deal with Bernie Ecclestone, Gill has ended his partnership with chief executive officer Simon Gillett.
The reasons behind the departure are unknown. And although a Donington Park spokesman said that the matter would not affect the track’s ongoing planning for the British Grand Prix, the development will only add to questions about whether the track has what it takes to be ready in time for 2010.
