Donington Historic Festival timetable announced

Published 25 February 2015

The timetable has been released for this year’s Donington Historic Festival so enthusiasts can plan their visit to the three-day historic motorsport meeting on 2-4 May.

More than 400 race cars from the 1920s to the 1990s will compete across 20 races, with grids for Le Mans prototypes, Grand Prix cars, historic Formula 2 and Formula Juniors, GT cars, Touring Cars, Super Touring Cars and pre-war and post-war sports cars.

Off-track entertainment includes displays and demonstrations from Historic Formula One and Grand Prix cars – to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the first-ever Donington Grand Prix – plus an impressive array of ‘supercars across the decades’ - a key theme of the festival.

Advance discounted tickets cost £20 for a single day ticket, £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 under 16 are admitted for free. Visit www.doningtonhistoric.com for more.
