Donington Historic Festival
The first big event of the year – a three day celebration of historic motorsport at the famous circuit. The racing is often close and competitive and there are lots of great viewing spots at this nicely contoured circuit. Fans of historic motorsport of all eras have a treat in store over the May Bank Holiday weekend when race cars from the 1920s to the 1990s take to the track for the Donington Historic Festival.
Across 17 exhilarating races, the Donington Historic Festival will showcase some 400 world-class competition machines. Single-seaters, Le Mans prototypes, GT cars, sports cars and Touring Cars will converge on a circuit renowned for fantastic on-track action and superb spectator viewing.
With close-fought racing every day, over 400 historic racing cars spanning seven decades, historic rally car and karting action and a ‘living motoring museum’ created by dozens of car clubs displays – plus a host of other attractions – exhilaration and entertainment is guaranteed, whether you buy a ticket for one, two or all three days! Friday is an action-packed qualifying day, where the drivers will be going all-out to put themselves on the front of the grid. Saturday and Sunday are all-race days, where the battles for the chequered flag will rage.
