With a fantastic range of world-class grids to appeal to everyone from lovers of single-seaters to Tin-Tops, DHF 2018 will see several hundred classic racing cars spanning nine decades take to the world-famous Donington Park track. 

 

Festival visitors on Friday May 4 - qualifying day - will be able to witness every single race series in action as all competitors battle it out for their place on the grid. Saturday May 5 sees 10 races, including the return to DHF of the highly glamorous pre-63 GT and the Festival debut of the HSCC Derek Bell Trophy for Formula 5000 and Formula 2 single-seaters from 1967-79. The equally impressive schedule for Sunday May 6 features nine races, including the ‘Mad Jack’ race for Pre-War Sports Cars, the GT and Sports Car Cup for pre-66 GT and pre-63 sportscars and the second Derek Bell Trophy race.

 

Spectators can also enjoy the all-access open paddock, pitlane walks, Group B rally car and historic kart demonstrations, supercar and classic car passenger rides with the Sporting Bears, thousands of classic cars gathering in the infield and DHF’s family-friendly, inclusive atmosphere.
