Fans of historic motorsport of all eras have a treat in store over the May Bank Holiday weekend when race cars from the 1920s to the 1990s take to the track for the Donington Historic Festival.
Friday 28th, Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th April.
Across 17 exhilarating races, the Donington Historic Festival will showcase some 400 world-class competition machines. Single-seaters, Le Mans prototypes, GT cars, sportscars and Touring Cars will converge on a circuit renowned for fantastic on-track action and superb spectator viewing. With close-fought racing every day, over 400 historic racing cars spanning seven decades, historic rally car and karting action and a ‘living motoring museum’ created by dozens of car clubs displays – plus a host of other attractions – exhilaration and entertainment is guaranteed, whether you buy a ticket for one, two or all three days! Friday is an action-packed qualifying day, where the drivers will be going all-out to put themselves on the front of the grid. Saturday and Sunday are all-race days, where the battles for the chequered flag will rage.
On each day of the Festival gates open at 07.30am and the circuit activity starts at 9.10am, finishing at around 6.30pm.
Members of car clubs registered to attend the event benefit from a two-for-one ticket offer on advance discounted tickets when they quote their unique club code at time of booking (car club booking deadline is Sunday, April 23rdh and all car club tickets must be booked in advance). Each pair of club tickets also includes an infield parking pass for club display vehicles, allowing them to join the other cars on display in their club’s dedicated infield parking area, to create a fantastic exhibit for all spectators to enjoy.

And there are always plenty of off-track attractions and live action and extensive club displays of classic cars from the dozens of car clubs that create a ‘living motoring museum’ right in the heart of the infield. We look forward to welcoming you to the Donington Historic Festival!

Ticket despatch from the organisers is about three weeks before the event.
The car club display area in the infield is a great attraction for car club members & other Festival visitors alike. We are keen to keep it looking as good as possible – which usually works well, provided that clubs respect our guidelines re display and non-display vehicles! Each pair of tickets booked will include one infield parking pass. Your members can request further infield parking passes when they book their tickets. We ask that club members don’t request more than they will actually need! We also ask them to provide details of the car the pass is for, at time of booking. We do appreciate that a small number of people won’t know (e.g. they might be preparing a car, be hoping to buy a car or have more than one to choose from!) but we think most should be able to complete this information.
In the interests of keeping your display looking as good as possible, we also ask that any club members arriving in a vehicle that is not forming part of the club display park their car in the public car park, not in the infield.
MOVEMENT TIMES IN AND OUT OF THE SITE
Entry to the infield will be via a tunnel with gates opening at 07.30am each day & cars must arrive by the very latest at 10am.
Cars will be allowed to exit via the tunnel again after 3pm each day.
The organisers ask Members to arrive well before 10am.
Camping is available next door to the circuit – at the Donington Park Farm House Hotel. Details of camping, hotels and local B&Bs can be found here: http://www.donington-park.co.uk/about/accommodation/
Disabled ticket holders that require full time assistance should be provided with one free ticket at the gate for their care assistant, partner or accompanying friend. In order to receive this free ticket, the disabled visitor will need to bring along a copy of their most recent DLA letter showing their current entitlement as well as their blue badge, should they require car parking on site.
