Tickets now on sale for 2018 Donington Historic Festival

Wednesday, December 20 2017

Advance discounted tickets for the 2018 Donington Historic Festival (4-6 May 2018) are now on sale, the perfect Christmas gift for fans of motorsport from a bygone era.

With advance tickets costing from just £10 and a special early bird offer giving even greater savings, it's more original than socks and gives the recipient an exciting day - or weekend - to look forward to.

The Donington Historic Festival (DHF) brings world-class historic motor racing to one of the UK's best-loved circuits, as packed grids of classic race cars delight the crowds with hard-fought, highly competitive racing. The diversity of the grids, featuring cars spanning nine decades from single seaters to Le Mans prototypes, means the event offers something for everyone.

Add an all-access open paddock, pit lane walks, thousands of classic cars gathering in the infield and DHF's family-friendly, inclusive atmosphere, and you have the recipe for a fantastic three-day event.

Donington Park is a favourite with competitors, who love tackling its sweeping bends and challenging corners, while spectators enjoy a spectacular view of the race action from the infield.

Chris York, Donington Park Venue Manager, commented: "Since its launch in 2011, the Donington Historic Festival has become a much-loved and important fixture on our race calendar. We'll be working more closely than ever before with the Historic promotions team on the event, and have a huge number of venue improvements planned, so we're confident the 2018 edition will be the best Festival yet!"

Duncan Wiltshire, Historic Promotions Managing Director, said "We are hugely excited to be staging DHF in 2018 in partnership with MSV. The new developments can only be beneficial for Donington Park, and with a fantastic racing programme already taking shape, the 2018 Donington Historic Festival should be something rather special!"
