Donington Historic Festival Timetable

The 2019 Donington Historic Festival promises to be the most action-packed yet and the time table is out! Fifteen grids will take to the track across 18 races.

Making its DHF debut is the HRDC ‘Allstars’ grid for pre-66 sports, GT and Touring Cars. The HRDC grids are always hugely entertaining and this promises to maintain that tradition. Expect to see TVR Griffith vs Bill Thomas Cheetah, Austin-Healey Jamaican and Daimler 250SP ‘Dart’!


Tin-top fans won’t be disappointed either, with a timetable that includes five dedicated Touring Car races. The HRDC ‘Coys Trophy’ will see everything from Mini Coopers to Notchback and GT350 Ford Mustangs in the line-up of 1958-66 Touring Cars, while the pre-60 grid in the HRDC ‘Touring Greats’ is likely to showcase battles between Ford Thunderbirds and Alfa Romeo Giulietta Ti Berlinas, with a good helping of Austin A35 and A40s nipping around as well.

Ford Lotus Cortinas will be out in force in the U2TC, facing opposition from BMW 1800 TISAs and Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTAs, while the Historic Touring Car Challenge with Tony Dron Trophy brings together a fantastic array of beefy pre-1991 British and European Touring Cars. If BMW M3 E30s, RS500 Ford Sierra Cosworths, Chevrolet Camaros, Ford Capris and XJ12C Jaguars are your thing, this is definitely one not to miss.
