We love the Donington Historic Festival. The atmosphere is always great, you can get right up close to the cars and drivers (not like some other classic motorsport events), and the racing is always fun to watch.
This year this wonderful event will take place on 2nd, 3rd and 4th May 2015. As well as watching many automotive icons fight it out on track, spectators can wander round the race paddocks, enjoying free access and getting up close to the cars and stars. Really close. It’s an awesome event as you can read in our previous years postcards here. Read more »

The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power (CPOP) is setting the wheels in motion for 2015. This year’s event, which takes place from 12th to 14th June, will go back to its roots by celebrating ‘power’ in all its forms.
With a wide range of exciting races, stunts, competitions and displays covering on-road, off-road, water and air, the three-day CPOP will give visitors their most thrilling experience yet.
Providing a real show-stopping spectacle and reinforcing the ‘power’ theme will be a 1,000bhp-plus class on the famous Cholmondeley race track. Backing this up will be the world’s most powerful rally cars from the notorious Group B era and Formula One cars from the fearsome Eighties turbo era. The theme will be further emphasised by a range of 200bhp bikes, including the Suzuki RGV500 XRB0, the most powerful two-stroke ever made.

Moreover, featuring grids packed with famous British-marques such as Aston Martin, Austin, Austin-Healey, Ford Cortina, Ginetta, Hillman, Jaguar, Lotus, MG, Mini, Marcos, Morgan, Morris, Riley, Sunbeam, Triumph, TVR and Wolseley, these two special showdowns will be staged under the illustrious ‘Battle of Britain’ banner.
The pair of 20-minute races will be notable highlights in the non-stop entertainment on both Saturday and Sunday and – commemorating the 75th anniversary of the 1940 air battle – they will be accompanied by alluring aerial displays by Spitfires and other Second World War aircraft.
