Announcement: 2014 Donington Historic date confirmed

The dates of the fourth Donington Historic Festival have been confirmed as Saturday, 14doningtonlogoSunday and Monday May 3rd, 4th and 5th 2014. Tickets will go on sale in November this year, giving UK and international enthusiasts plenty of time to plan their visit to what is now a firm favourite on the worldwide historic motorsport calendar.

Festival organiser Duncan Wiltshire said, “2013 was our first ever three-day Festival, and it was a great success. Consequently we are delighted to be keeping to three days again for 2014 and, in response to popular demand, this will be Saturday, Sunday and Monday. This will allow the drivers and fans to enjoy superb historic racing – and all our off-track attractions such as the rally car demonstrations – for the entire Bank Holiday weekend, which we hope will make the event even more accessible for spectators new to the sport, as well as satisfying the most dedicated historic car enthusiasts.”

The 2014 Donington Historic Festival is guaranteed to deliver a thrilling array of huge, international grids of the very best historic single-seaters, sportscars and Touring Cars, driven by top drivers, providing the mix of exhilarating racing, remarkable and priceless cars and the famous Donington Historic open-access paddock that always proves so entertaining.

Car clubs will, of course, remain integral to the event, with clubs large and small invited to form the displays which traditionally draw huge crowds of interested enthusiasts, who love the opportunity to wander around the ‘living motoring museum’ that assembles on the infield, and to see the car club parades. Other attractions will include historic rally car action, fast demonstration laps from special race cars, the popular trade village and the Donington Grand Prix Collection museum.

Ticket prices for the 2014 Donington Historic Festival will be announced later this year. For further information please visit
