Huge grids planned as organisers announce Donington dates

| 24 Jul 2013

The fourth Donington Historic Festival will take place from 3-5 May.

The 2014 event is set to once again have grids for single-seaters, GTs and touring cars, while also giving visitors open access to the paddock.

Car clubs will be out in force, too, and other attractions are set to include historic rally action, demonstration laps from special racers, a trade village and the Donington Grand Prix Collection museum.

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, they will be Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

“This will allow the drivers and fans to enjoy superb historic racing – and all our off-track attractions – for the entire Bank Holiday weekend, which we hope will make the event even more accessible for spectators.”
