DHF 2022 welcomes back the crowds in style

A very fine spectacle for spectators at this year’s Donington Historic Festival

With the very welcome return of spectators this year, the atmosphere at the eleventh Donington Historic Festival (DHF) was buzzing even before the high-octane track action got underway over the weekend of 30 April and 1 May. The all-access Paddock and daily pitlane walks allowed visitors to get up close to the astonishing array of racing machines – with the Group C tent proving a particular draw.

DHF 2022 presented the thousands of historic motorsport fans with a wealth of world-class racing machinery spanning eight decades. Among a weekend of motorsport highlights were two 40-minute races for C1 by Duncan Hamilton ROFGO for original factory Group C cars shone particularly brightly, with the return of the Group C beasts in their iconic liveries to Donington Park going down a storm.

Bright sunshine on Saturday morning brought the crowds, who made the most of the superlative track views afforded by the grassy banks of Donington Park’s Infield, and even Sunday’s more overcast weather didn’t deter Festival visitors in their droves from settling down on their deckchairs and picnic blankets and enjoying the show.

Next year the Donington Historic Festival returns to its traditional three-day format, bringing even more grids and even more variety to the action-packed timetable.
