Donington Historic details unveiled

Published 01 April 2014

The Donington Historic Festival (3-5 May) continues to grow, with 2014's event being headlined by not one but two Touring Car races on Saturday, and the Maserati Centenary Challenge on Bank Holiday Monday.

The Motor Racing Legends’ Historic Touring Car Challenge for 1966-85 Touring Cars, will be an early highlight, joined by the HRDC ‘Celebration of the BTCC’ for Touring Cars 1958-1965 providing the finale for that day. In between, the Pre-63 GT will showcase one of the most beautiful and valuable grids of the whole Festival.

Sunday will see the first parts of the Festival’s two feature races – the Motor Sport 90th Anniversary Trophy for pre-War Sports Cars, likely to feature Bentley, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Frazer Nash, BMW, Vauxhall, Riley, MG and Talbot. It will be followed by the Maserati Centenary Trophy, showcasing cars from the 1930s to the 1960s powered by engines built by Maserati or OSCA. Full - though provisional - timetable is below.

Advance tickets cost £20 for a single day, £32 for a two-day ticket and just £45 for a three-day weekend ticket (on-the-gate prices will be £25, £40 and £60 respectively). Children aged 13 and under are admitted for free. Advance discounted tickets can be bought via www.doningtonhistoric.com. Advance ticket sales close at 5.00pm on 30 April.
