F1 at Donington


240316-donnington-a 240316-donnington-b


The unmistakable sound of Formula 1 engines will echo round Donington Park on Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May as historic cars stage a series of demonstrations on the first two days of the Donington Historic Festival.

The youngest of the demos will be the 2002 Jordan EJ12 from Takuma Sato’s F1 debut year, the Michael Schumacher 1992 Benetton B192, and the 1990 Camel Lotus 102 (Derek Warwick/Martin Brundle/Johnny Herbert).

The previous two decades will be represented by the Rupert Keegan 1977 Hesketh 308E, 1983 Williams FW08 (Keke Rosberg/Jacques Laffite), the Jean-Pierre Jarier/Piercarlo Ghinzani/Corrado Fabi 1983 Osella FA1-D and two Tolemans. The 1985 TG-185 is Teo Fabi, while the 1984 TG-184 was Ayrton Senna’s regular test car throughout 1984, and is the car in which he caused a sensation in Friday practice for the British GP at Brands Hatch, setting the fastest time in both of the day’s sessions.
