In 2011 and 2012 the race action at the Donington Historic Festival saw more than 300 historic racing cars from the 1920s to the 1980s, battling for victory. There were Group C Le Mans sports cars, GT40‘s and Ferrari GTO‘s, Touring Cars from the 70′s and 80′s, pre-War Bentley‘s, Bugatti‘s and Alfa Romeo‘s and much, much more.
As well as watching these 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.
Plus there’s always plenty of off-track attractions and live action – including legendary Group B rally cars, historic karts, autojumble and memorabilia stalls, cafés, bars and food outlets – and extensive club displays of classic cars.
Now in its third year and with an exciting three-day format you can expect more of the same for 2014, as well as plenty of new attractions, and the organisers are busy putting together another packed programme. Once again they are aiming to keep ticket prices well below the usual cost of top-quality historic motor sport weekends, as the organisers want to continue to offer all the thrills of the top, established events, but at a family friendly price – and at arguably the best spectator circuit in the country.
