Monday was my first visit to the Donington Historic Festival and the Donington Park Circuit where the event is held. Through the breaks in the torrential rain (which would suddenly switch to glorious sunshine and then back again) I managed to have a look around the memorabilia stalls and watch the racing action.
As well as watching the races, spectators had free access to the race paddocks, could enjoy a passenger ride with the Caterham Experience, watch the Group B rally cars and visit the car club displays situated in the middle of the infield.
Donington has two on site cafés and plenty of food stalls dotted around the circuit, as well a shop that sells drinks, sweets and magazines. For an added fee, visitors can look around The Donington Grand Prix Collection which showcases over 130 exhibits illustrating the history of motorsport.
