Donington Historic Festival 2022

April 30 @ 10:00 am - May 1 @ 5:00 pm

£21.00
Donington Historic Festival

Whether you’re a long-time enthusiast or have never seen a historic racing car in action before, you’ll find plenty to entertain you at the Donington Historic Festival. Celebrating the 11th festival in 2022, the event is firmly established as a major fixture on the international historic racing calendar, attracting many thousands of spectators, hundreds of world-class historic racing cars and huge numbers of classic car club displays.

As well as watching such iconic machines fighting it out on track, spectators can wander round the race paddocks, enjoying free access and getting up close to the cars and stars. There are also plenty of off-track attractions and live action as well as extensive club displays of classic cars. This has the effect of creating a ‘living motoring museum’ right in the heart of the infield.

An action-packed timetable has been announced for the 2022 Donington Historic Festival, which powers back to Donington Park on Saturday and Sunday 30 April and 1 May. Highlights include two thundering races for original factory Group C cars, a dedicated 80-minute spectacular into the twilight for Ford GT40s and the epic endurance battle that is the Royal Automobile Club Pall Mall Cup.

Add in Touring Cars spanning four decades, a round of the hugely popular Jaguar Classic Challenge, the glorious pre-‘56 and pre-‘61 sports cars of the combined Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy & Stirling Moss Trophy race and a host of sprightly pre-War sports cars which are campaigned no less fiercely than their younger counterparts, and you have an unmissable weekend of historic motorsport. Spectators will receive a warm welcome as they return for the first time since 2019, and a mass of other attractions, including car club displays and parades, trade stands and lunchtime track demonstrations will ensure non-stop entertainment on and off the track.

Early Bird tickets are still available until 31 January, giving further savings over the normal advance price – so you still have time to bag a bargain while securing your spot at what promises to be a truly memorable event at family-friendly Donington Park.
