Donington Park will bring the cream of the UK’s historic racing cars to the East Midlands when it runs its first-ever Donington Historic Festival on 30th April and 1st May 2011.
The Leicestershire circuit has joined forces with respected race organiser Duncan Wiltshire so the racing should be great.
The UK’s historic racing car scene is booming and there is a huge appetite for watching motorsport’s iconic vehicles in action. Donington Park’s track also has the unique distinction of being virtually unchanged since it was opened in the 1930s, making it the most authentic circuit on which to race historic sports cars in the UK.
The festival will be aimed squarely at attracting the best cars and ensuring that the drivers and serious fans are well catered for. Work is now underway to devise an exciting programme of races worthy of an event which it is hoped will grow to become one of the best motorsport festivals of its type in the world. See the Timetable here.
I certainly will be attending, and cannot wait, it should be a great day out, with some superb racing action. I have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader. So how do you win the pair of free tickets, just leave a comment on any of the sites posts, and whoever leaves the best comments will win the tickets. Good luck, and hopefully see you there!
