Donington Historic Festival 

The new season starts here

Now in its second decade, Donington Historic Festival is the long-established season opener to the UK historic racing year. And where finer a venue to hold it?  Donington’s challenging circuit, steeped in history, is the perfect setting for a huge programme of races featuring cars from the 1920s, to the 1990s.

Following a two-day format, each day will see action-packed qualifying sessions and highly competitive races. Car clubs, trade stands and lunchtime parades will add further to the heady mix.  

Motor Racing Legends’ grids are the corner-stone of this event, and for 2022 will feature:

  • The ‘Mad Jack’ for Pre-War Sports Cars
  • The Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Trophy (for pre ’56 sports cars) & Stirling Moss Trophy (for pre ’61 sports racing cars)
  • The Jaguar Classic Challenge
  • Historic Touring Car Challenge with Tony Dron Trophy and Sixties Touring Car Challenge
  • The Royal Automobile Club Pall Mall Cup.
