The first May bank holiday weekend and the Donington Historic Festival provided a scorching backdrop for the first in the series of three races of the Pre-63 GT championship. Proudly sponsored by DK Engineering, the grid brought a wealth of competitors, seeing the likes of the Ferrari 250 GT 'Breadvan', a host of Jaguar E-Types up against Lotus Elite's and an Aston Martin DB4 GT.
Whilst the Breadvan stormed into an early lead, unfortunately mechanical woes forced early retirement. After the mid-race driver swap, victory was taken by the Aston Martin DB4 GT of Friedrichs and Hadfield, second place taken by Blakeney-Edwards and Grant-Peterkin with the 260 Cobra. The final place on the podium taken by James Cottingham and Harvey Stanley in the DK E-Type.
David Cottingham and James also shared the driving of the 500 TRC in the RAC Woodcote trophy on the Saturday afternoon. The weekend gave us a broad mix of racing and continued into Sunday afternoon(along with the weather!); there was plenty to see and do as other races saw a tight grids of historic touring cars, pre war sports cars, super tourers, Formula 5000 and the Jaguar classic challenge.
