    Hi all ,

    I will be attending on the Saturday and Possibly the Sunday.

    This event is honestly one of the best of the year. I have been over the past 2 years and its become one of the "must do" events of the year.

    The infield parking is strictly for Renault only. Can be a modern, can be a classic. The only exception to this rule will be me , as Ill have to co-ordinate you lot.

    The discount for the tickets is for everyone. However , you must use our discount code which I will send you via a PM upon request. I will require your name , if infield parking is required and number of tickets you are purchasing so they tally up with the guys who are selling them.

    Ticket link is HERE : http://doningtonpark.seetickets.com/tour/donington-historic-festival/

    Vehicle movement restrictions: Entry to and exit from the infield car club display area will be via a tunnel. Gates open at 7.30 each day, and cars must arrive by 11am and will be allowed to exit via the tunnel again after 3pm each day. However, occasional restrictions may apply outside of these times depending on the crowd density at the event.

    Did I mention some Group B rally cars are in attendance? Oh I did ? !

    All discounted car club tickets must be booked by 5pm on Sunday, April 23rd 2017

    Mostly replicas, but you might get the odd genuine one thrown in if you're lucky.

    The 5 was a replica , but as I understood it the 6r4 wasnt. There was a rs200 and that went like the clappers. No idea if it was genuine.
    Either way , spectacular.

    Depends which Metro and Ford it was. That 'Rallying With Group B' lot have replicas of both at events. If the Metro was that C9 KOG thing in Computervision colours that turns up everywhere, it's about as genuine a 6R4 as a Tony Hilfinger shirt ;)

    They do sometimes have a few Clubman 6R4's, and I've seen an ex-works RS200 at some of their events. B200 AYD - The ex-Blomqvist 1986 RAC car, and the most original of the ex-works 200s.
