    I felt I was twice lucky with this – first winning the tickets and then going on the day with the best weather so far this year.

    I spent most of the morning wandering the paddock, admiring not just the race cars but also the variety of support vehicles the racers had brought. Many were very modest Brian James trailers towed behind a transit van but others were literally articulated trucks with double deck car ramps and built-in living accommodation. Some of these trucks were liveried with the team colour scheme which matched the team t-shirts, cars and race overalls. I guess it’s one of those hobbies that can get seriously out of hand!

    Through the tunnel to the infield, I spent a good while walking round the different car clubs parking areas. Most clubs seemed represented from the humble MGs and Reliant Scimitars to the more exotic Ferraris and Maseratis. More arrived during the day and most clubs had one or two members on hand to chat about their pride and joy and the ups and downs of classic ownership.

    With qualifying out of the way in the morning, the afternoon was mostly racing and this is where Donington Park scores well for spectators, having lots of vantage points where you can see a good portion of the circuit. I settled on the large slope overlooking the Craner Curves and watched cars from my childhood being thrashed around. Mini Coopers pitched against Jaguars seemed at first a bit unfair but I was amazed at how they gained ground and overtook the bigger cars; braking later and being able to go flatter in the curves.

    With the weather at its best and the variety of hardware on display and on the track it was a great day out. It wasn’t just for petrolheads though, there were many families there with kids of all ages enjoying the spectacle and the sunshine.

    Thanks to MyCarHeaven for the opportunity and thanks to Donington Historic Festival for putting on a great show.

    Hi Will,

    Thank you so much we had a wonderful time. It was thrilling having such access to all the cars and seeing models we had never seen before. What we hadn’t realised was that the lovely old cars we had been inspecting, such as a leather bodied Frazer Nash, ended up being raced around the track in the pre-war race.

    Seeing Sir John Surtees driving around the track in his old racing cars was such a priviledge too.

    It was an excellent event and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Thanks

    Liz
