Stoneleigh Park, Coventry, CV8 2LZ
With around 700 classic cars – project, part and fully restored, 350 specialist exhibitors and leading dealers, Spring’s largest indoor Autojumble and 125 car clubs showcasing their ongoing and completed projects, it’s the perfect season opener for the classic motoring calendar.
Organisers are already on the look out for classics at either end of the motoring spectrum – as they aim to top the 25 ‘barn finds’ featured in last year’s show as well as rounding up the ‘best of the best’ for the Pride of Ownership display.
The season will begin at Zolder (April 9/10), with the FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship and FIA Masters Historic Sports Car Championship headlining a new Masters Festival co-promoted with the circuit and featuring the local Belcar series.
As well as involvement in Formula One and the World Rally Championship, IMS has more than 25 years of experience in highly successful classic car events both in the UK and in Europe,” said Ben Taylor, Managing Director of IMS, the commercial subsidiary of the Motor Sports Association, the national governing body of UK motor sport.

Whether you’re a long-time enthusiast or have never seen a historic racing car in action before, you’ll find plenty to entertain you at the Donington Historic Festival. After five very successful years the event is firmly established as a major fixture on the international historic racing calendar, attracting many thousands of spectators, hundreds of world-class historic racing cars and huge numbers of classic car club displays.
As the archive videos on this page show, Donington Park has a fabulous history, from the days of the pre-War Silver Arrows GP cars right through to modern times, and the Festival calls upon all that history, creating a fantastic atmosphere at what is arguably the best spectator circuit in the country.
As well as watching such iconic machines fighting it out on track, spectators can wander round the race paddocks, enjoying free access and getting up close to the cars and stars. And there are always plenty of off-track attractions and live action – including legendary Group B rally cars, autojumble and memorabilia stalls, cafés, bars and food outlets – and extensive club displays of classic cars from the dozens of car clubs that create a ‘living motoring museum’ right in the heart of the infield.We look forward to welcoming you to the Donington Historic Festival 2016!
