 The Donington Historic Festival: May 1st, 2nd & 3rd  2020

Break out those 2020 diaries and block out Friday 1st May, Saturday 2nd May and Sunday 3rd May – the dates for next year’s Donington Historic Festival have now been confirmed.

Friday 1st May will be an action-packed 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.
