Silverstone & Donington Historic Weekends

Post by Colin Valentine » Tue Jan 29, 2019 12:32 am

Silverstone Classis Weekend 26/8 july 2019

A weekend ticket for 1 car + 2 people is £102 if bought before 31 March.
But I have been unable to crack the Silverstone Car Club Display price.
I was hoping it might be cheaper, but it does, at least, get parking inside the circuit.
It is not clear if you are allowed to move cars at the end of each day.
My guess is that people would need to budget £150 for the weekend with camping.
I presume camping etc are extra and on the designated site, and not with the in-circuit parking.



Donington Historic Festival 3/5 May 2019

Donington Historic Festival brings together a fabulous array of classic racing cars spanning nine decades in a three-day spectacle at a race circuit that’s superb for spectators and competitors alike. The action on the track is complemented by displays from dozens of classic car clubs plus parades and demonstrations and an all-access open paddock, in a family-friendly event that’s a ‘must-do’ part of the historic motorsport calendar.

Advance tickets offer significant discounts over buying on the gate, and Earlybird tickets bring the cost down even further, with an Earlybird three-day weekend ticket costing just £35 (£40 from Feb 1), while Earlybird raceday (Saturday or Sunday) tickets cost £21 (£25 from Feb 1). Can’t make the whole weekend? You can still enjoy fantastic track action on the Friday qualifying day (May 3), with an advance ticket costing just £10. Children aged under 13 are admitted for free and there are discounted tickets for teenagers aged 13-15.

Visit http://www.doningtonhistoric.com to secure your Earlybird tickets or to bag that festive bargain for a classic motorsport buff now.




I think it is possible to have a Club Stand at either or both of these Events.
So if anyone is interested, then please let me know and I will arrange a Club Stand. It would be good if some of the cars are Competition Imps or reasonable Replicas.
Then the Display would need some details of the Spec & and the Drivers & Events. And obviously, the owners would need to spend some time on the Stand to talk to visitors.
