Donington Historic Festival returns on 1-2 May 2021

Friday, October 23 2020

The dates for the 2021 Donington Historic Festival (DHF) have been confirmed as 1/2 May. Next year marks the festival's 10th anniversary and the organisers are aiming to celebrate with hundreds of cars on track from the 1920s to '80s.

Since its inception in 2011, DHF has established a reputation for attracting strong, high quality grids featuring everything from pre-war sports cars to glamourous 1950s and '60s GTs. There is usually a wealth of interesting classic single-seaters too, in addition to a wide variety of touring cars from the past seven decades.

Each of the two days will feature a busy race programme, whilst car clubs will be invited to take part in static displays within the distinctive surrounds of Donington Park's infield. Trade stands and lunchtime parades will add further elements to the show.

Donington Historic Festival organiser Richard Grafton said: "With DHF 2020 having to be cancelled due to the COVID lockdown, we are very much looking forward to the sights and sounds of historic race cars battling it out around Donington Park at DHF 2021. We are already working hard on securing some excellent grids and, like everyone looking to stage an event next year, will do all we can to hold a superb celebration of classic motorsport, within whatever restrictions may apply at that time."

MSV Motorsport Events Manager, David Willey said: "I'm delighted we've been able to confirm that the Donington Historic Festival will return in 2021 on its traditional early May date. In addition to being an annual historic highlight, this event is a key fixture on the East Midlands automotive social calendar, with car enthusiasts travelling from far and wide to enjoy the motor racing and displays. It's been a real pleasure to work with the DHF's organising team over the past few years, and we're already working hard to ensure the event gets the 10th anniversary it deserves next Spring."
