Confirmed dats for theDonington Historic Festival 2021

Finally the news many of us have been waiting for; and the confirmation that Donington Historic Festival (DHF) WILL BE GOING AHEAD and on 1st – 2nd May 2021. Can you tell we’re excited?

The team at My Car Heaven will once again be in attendance at the event, ready to bring you closer to the collections of cool classic and iconic cars. Complete with car reviews, walkabouts, videos and photos, you won’t miss a thing with My Car Heaven.

2021 marks the Festival’s 10th anniversary, and the organisers are looking to celebrate with a fantastic selection of hundreds of historic racing machines from the 1920s to 1980s.

Since its inception in 2011, DHF has always been renowned for the quality of its grids, featuring everything from pre-War sports cars to glamorous 1950s and 60s GT and sportscars and from historic single-seaters to classic Touring Cars from the 1950s onwards.

Each day will see action-packed qualifying sessions and highly competitive races, while car clubs will be invited to stage static displays in Donington Park’s Infield. Trade stands and lunchtime parades will add further to the ever-popular DHF mix.

Donington Historic Festival organiser Richard Grafton said: “With DHF 2020 having to be cancelled due to the Covid lockdown, we are very much looking forward to the sights and sounds of historic race cars battling it out around Donington Park at DHF 2021. We are already working hard on securing some excellent grids, and, like everyone looking to stage an event next year, will do all we can to hold a superb celebration of classic motorsport, within whatever Covid restrictions may apply at that time.”

MSV Motorsport Events Manager, David Willey said: “I’m delighted we’ve been able to confirm that the Donington Historic Festival will return in 2021 on its traditional early May date. In addition to being an annual historic highlight, this event is a key fixture on the East Midlands automotive social calendar, with car enthusiasts travelling from far and wide to enjoy the motor racing and displays. It’s been a real pleasure to work with the DHF’s organising team over the past few years, and we’re already working hard to ensure the event gets the 10th anniversary it deserves next Spring.”
