It is already time to break out those 2020 diaries and block out Friday 1st May, Saturday 2nd May and Sunday 3rd May as the dates for next year’s Donington Historic Festival have already been confirmed.
Friday 1st May will be a busy day of qualifying, allowing classic race fans to see every single grid out on track over the course of one day, while the Saturday and Sunday will be full-on race days, with an international cast of hundreds of world-class historic race cars and their highly competitive and skilled drivers battling it out on the stunning, spectator-friendly Donington Park race circuit.
With a strong supporting cast of off-track attractions and parades, including displays from dozens of car clubs, this family-friendly event is a ‘must-see’, whether you’re a longstanding historic motorsport enthusiast or want to get a taster for this hugely exciting and entertaining spectacle. Be warned - if you’re not yet a fan, you’re likely to come away hooked on the sport!
Festival visitors can also enjoy fantastic access to the competition machines in the open-access paddock, with everything from priceless 1920s and ‘30s Bugattis, Bentleys and Alfa Romeos to classic Touring Cars from the 1950s-1990s on show, and the lunchtime pitlane walks give a great chance to get behind the scenes of a race track.
Tickets for the 2020 Donington Historic Festival will go on sale on November 1st 2019.
