The Donington Historic Festival 2014 offers world-class historic motorsport at family-friendly prices, with advance ticket discounts making the price of entry even more friendly.
Although only in its fourth year, the Donington Historic Festival is already firmly established as a major fixture on the international historic racing calendar, attracting many thousands of spectators, hundreds of world-class historic racing cars and huge numbers of classic car club displays. As well as watching such iconic machines fighting it out on track, spectators can wander round the race paddocks, enjoying free access and getting up close to the cars and stars. And there are always plenty of off-track attractions and live action – including legendary Group B rally cars, autojumble and memorabilia stalls, cafés, bars and food outlets – and extensive club displays of classic cars from the dozens of car clubs that create a ‘living motoring museum’ right in the heart of the infield.
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. Kids aged 13 and under are admitted for free.
