The Races

 

With qualifying and a cracking Touring Car race on the Friday, and two days of racing on Saturday and Sunday, DHF 2020 promises three action-packed days of historic motorsport excitement!


FJHRA/HSCC ‘SILVERLINE’ UK CHAMPIONSHIP; EARLY YEARS ’58 – ’60

These lovely little machines, developed for a racing formula that was introduced 60 years ago to train and bring on future Grand Prix drivers, always deliver outstanding and highly competitive racing.


ROYAL AUTOMOBILE CLUB WOODCOTE TROPHY

This series is firmly established within classic racing circles as the go-to series for competitive 50s racing. And it features some of the most beautiful road-racing cars ever built.


SIXTIES TOURING CAR CHALLENGE WITH U2TC

The pre-’66 under 2 litre Touring Cars of U2TC – such as Mk 1 Mini Coopers, Mk 1 Lotus Cortinas, and BMW 1800s – are joined by the Mk 2 Lotus Cortinas, BMW 2002s, Alfa Romeo GTA variants, early Mk 1 Ford Escorts, Mk 2 Minis, Lancia Fulvias of the new  Sixties Touring Car Challenge.


FJHRA/HSCC ‘SILVERLINE’ UK CHAMPIONSHIP; LATER YEARS ’61-’63

Close and exhilarating racing from nimble little machines that, back in the day, were the stepping-stone to Formula 1 for some of the greatest names in the sport.


‘MAD JACK’ PRE-WAR SPORTS CARS

These are the oldest cars competing at the event, with all sports cars built before 1941 being eligible. They may be the ‘elder statesmen’ at the Festival, but they don’t hang about!


GT & SPORTS CAR CUP

This grid is for genuine pre-66 GT cars and pre-63 sports-racing cars of a type that was raced in the World Endurance Championship in period.


HRDC ‘THERMEX ALLSTARS’ FOR PRE-66 SPORTS, GT AND TOURING CARS

The HRDC grids are always hugely entertaining and this promises to maintain that tradition. Expect to see TVR Griffith vs Bill Thomas Cheetah, Austin-Healey Jamaican and Daimler 250SP ‘Dart’!


HISTORIC TOURING CAR CHALLENGE WITH TONY DRON TROPHY

This grid of pre-1991 British and European Touring Cars features the type of beefy machines that most of us could only dream of driving back in period.


PRE ’63 GT

This sumptuous race series features such iconic machines as Short Wheelbase Ferraris, DB4GT Astons, AC Aces, MGA Twincams, SZ Alfas, Lotus Elites and E-type Jaguars – all to genuine pre-1963 specification.


STIRLING MOSS TROPHY

These purpose-built, pre-61 sports-racers look and sound fantastic – and the drivers are competing for the actual cup that Sir Stirling Moss won in the 1955 British GP.


JAGUAR CLASSIC CHALLENGE CHAMPIONSHIP

A stunning grid of pre-’66 Jaguar cars will prowl round Donington Park, making spectators purr with pleasure!


HRDC ‘COYS 100 TROPHY’ FOR TOURING CARS 1958 – 1966

Always wonderfully entertaining, the Coys 100 Trophy grid sees Mk 1 Lotus Cortinas battling out with Mustangs, Mini Coopers, Austin A35s and Ford Galaxies.


FORMULA ATLANTIC

The thunder of these potent single-seaters will get chests rumbling and hearts thumping as Formula Atlantic and Formula B cars from 1971 to 1983 are put through their paces.
