Classics for Christmas… or a gift at any time!

Action from a previous historics meeting.

THIS year has seen many great battles taking place on race tracks around the country, indeed some veritable classics.
Sometimes it’s taken for granted just what a great motoring history this country has.
But there is one Midlands circuit which holds a commemoration of racing marques from the past… Donington Park.
And the Derby area circuit has just announced advanced ticket prices for its 2014 Donington Historic Festival (Saturday, Sunday and Monday, May 3, 4 and 5) which are now on sale.
Whether you’re a first-time visitor, an old hand planning a return visit to this ‘must-do’ event in the international historic calendar, or are looking for that perfect gift for a historic racing fan, a ticket to this hugely popular motorsport spectacular is just a phone call or mouse click away.
With close-fought racing every day, over 400 historic racing cars spanning seven decades, historic rally car and karting action and a ‘living motoring museum’ created by dozens of car clubs displays, plus a host of other attractions, exhilaration and entertainment is guaranteed, whether you buy a ticket for one, two or all three days!
As usual, the Donington Historic Festival offers world-class motorsport at family-friendly prices, with advance ticket discounts making the price of entry even more friendly. Advance tickets cost £20 for a Saturday, Sunday or Monday single day ticket, £32 for a Saturday + Sunday or Sunday + Monday 2-day ticket and just £45 for a 3-day weekend ticket. On-the-gate prices will be £25 for Saturday, Sunday or Monday single day tickets, £40 for Saturday + Sunday or Sunday + Monday 2-day tickets and £60 for the 3-day weekend tickets. Children aged under 14 are admitted for free.
Advance discounted tickets can be bought via and through the 24-hour ticket hotline 0844 873 7355. Advance ticket sales close at 5pm on Wednesday, April 30th 2014.
There are also special discounts for members of car clubs that have registered with the Festival, and car club organisers are invited to register their club via the car club section on the event’s website to allow their members to enjoy these benefits.
