What is it?


Whether you’re a long-time enthusiast or have never seen a historic racing car in action before, you’ll find plenty to entertain you at the Donington Historic Festival. Celebrating the 10th festival in 2020, the event is 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 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. We look forward to welcoming you to the Donington Historic Festival!

Where is it?

Donington Park Race Circuit, DE74 2BN

When?

1st -3rd May. Come for as many days as you wish. Friday is practise and qualifying, but Saturday and Sunday are race days.

What else is there to do?

Lots of off track entertainment, live action displays and the chance to do a parade lap of the track!

How to get tickets

TO ORDER ONLINE IF YOU ARE BRINGING A DISPLAY CAR
1) Go to: Go to: www.msv.com/DHFdisplay

2) Select our club from the list shown and click on its name. If you already have an MSV account, login. Otherwise, create an account.

3) You’ll then be presented with a page showing the conditions for displaying a vehicle - click the box at the bottom to say that you agree, then you’ll be taken to a page that asks ‘who are you displaying with?’ Select ‘With a club’ then select our club name from the list that appears and press ‘Continue’

4) Select the day or days that you wish to attend and press ‘Continue’

5) CAR DETAILS: Add the details of the vehicle/s you will be bringing* to display on the club stand.

6) TICKET SELECTION: Follow the process through to ticket selection. IMPORTANT - the online club ordering system automatically puts one adult driver entry ticket/display vehicle parking pass for your chosen day/days into your shopping basket before you get to the ticket selection area.This ticket is the combined driver entry ticket/display parking pass that gives entry to both the driver and their car. So when you get to ticket selection, please only select any passenger entry tickets that you may need.

7) In the shopping basket you will see any additional tickets you have chosen showing as entry tickets and your combined driver entry ticket/parking pass will show as a vehicle display pass (shown at the price for an entry ticket). The tickets will automatically be discounted so that you don’t need to enter any discount codes. Your combined driver entry ticket/vehicle pass, along with any additional tickets purchased, will be sent out immediately.

TO ORDER BY PHONE
Call the MSV ticket hotline 0843 453 9000, give the club name and booking code
DHF_20_XCCB9ZX
and you should receive the 50% club discount. If you are planning on bringing a display car for your club stand, please make sure you request a combined driver entry ticket/display parking pass as one of your tickets and give details of your car. *Calls cost 7 pence per minute plus your phone company’s access charge.

OTHER INFORMATION
Want to buy extra entry tickets after you’ve already completed your original purchase? Just call 0843 453 9000, give them the club code
DHF_20_XCCB9ZX
and explain that you just need passenger tickets, not parking passes.

Want to buy extra entry tickets and get another parking pass after you’ve completed your original purchase? Either call and follow the ‘order by phone’ instructions above or follow the original online order process.

Booking online but not arriving in a club display car?
If you plan to arrive in a non-club car so will be parking in the public car park, please purchase tickets using the normal booking website and enter club discount code

I've booked for the weekend and expect to be in attendance on Saturday and Sunday

The club discount is 50%, so up until the end of January it's 50% of early bird rates

When you book, follow Ed's guide notes above (particularly point 6) because it would be easy to make a mistake and buy an extra ticket

I've booked. This is a great weekend. I've been going for a few years now and you can get access throughout the pits and paddock.

Looking forward to it.

Phil

Sorry everyone. This event, inline with all Motorsport events, cannot take place at the moment.

If you have already booked tickets, please contact Donington if they have not already contacted you.

For anyone that did book tickets for this year and hasn't seen the MSV email, you have the option of either carrying your tickets forward to next year's event or taking credit/refund
https://covid19.msv.com/Covid19/Doningt ... dium=email
You will need your booking reference and email address

I have carried my booking over to next year
