Springtime Events in England – Donington Park and The Warren Classic

We here at The Old Motor feel fortunate to have as a foreign correspondent young Pavel Novitski. Included here are some of his photos from two events held last weekend in the United Kingdom, the 2013 Donnington Historic Festival and The Warren Classic. Our featured photo above, shows us an Alfa Romeo and a Bugatti and the first six thumbnails (below) we see some of the rare vintage Grand Prix racers that help make the Donnington event, now in it’s third year, such a memorable one.

A fine selection of road going machinery covering every era from Veteran cars up to and including today’s most exotic Supercars was on view at the first ever Warren Classic. With an entry limited to one hundred cars, Pavel shows us some of the very best of the type we think will appeal to our readers in the thumbnails below. You see more of Pavel’s excellent work here.



We at The Old Motor want to join with the vintage racing community to express our sympathy to the family and friends of Christian Devereux of Chiswick, London who succumbed to injuries sustained during an unfortunate accident this year at Donnington.

One response to “Springtime Events in England – Donington Park and The Warren Classic

  1. Donington Park is in the English Midlands, which was a famous prewar race venue where the works Mercedes and Auto Unions swept the board, and which returned to being a successful race venue thanks to the efforts of the late Tom Wheatcroft, who managed to purchase the estate and restore the track to working order. This is a feat the scale of which few can imagine. His son Kevin gave a demonstration at the Historic Festival in a replica prewar Mercedes single seater as an evocation of the track’s past glories.
