Tickets for the Donington Historic Festival (May 5th & 6th) have been set at very family-friendly prices and, until 5pm on Wednesday May 2nd, they’re even friendlier, with advance booking discounts of over 25% off the on-the-gate cost.
Bought in advance, a day ticket to the Festival costs just £18. And a weekend advance ticket is £30. Children aged 15 or under go for free, so a family of four can enjoy a weekend of unrivalled motorsport for just £60.
Over 300 iconic racing machines spanning seven decades will take part in this historic motorsport spectacular. Expect to see everything from 1920s Bentleys and 1930s Bugattis and Alfas to stunning Ferraris, Aston Martins and D and C-type Jaguars. The mighty Group C sportscars will definitely make their presence felt, as will the Chevrons, Lolas and Ford GT40s. The ever-popular 1966-85 Touring Cars will bring back memories of family motoring as Triumph Dolomites and Ford Capris battle it out, and there will be E-types galore in the E-type Challenge race.
Add to that Sir Stirling Moss driving a C-type Jaguar on the Sunday, the ‘pop-up’ motoring museum created by dozens of classic car clubs in the infield, and the chance to visit the world’s largest collection of Formula One cars in the Donington Grand Prix Collection, and it’s easy to see why the Festival is a ‘must-do’ event on the international historic motorsport calendar.
Even if you don’t book in advance, the Donington Historic Festival is still tremendous value for money, with on-the-gate prices of £25 per day or £40 for the weekend. But until 5pm on May 2nd, you can benefit from the additional savings by booking calling the 24-hour ticket hotline 0844 873 7355.
