Pic Of The Week: Donington Historic

With POTW, we like to try and keep things topical. So why is it that this week (you may ask) we are using a picture from the inaugural Donington Historic Festival, an event that happened way back in April?

Well, quite apart from the fact that a pair of GT40s (and a car whose identity escapes us) sprinting off into the sunset is one heck of an evocative image (we reckon), the Donington Historic peeps have recently released dates for the second iteration of the festival - so keep the weekend of 5th and 6th May 2012 free. (That's when it's happening, by the way.)

In the meantime, you can always while away the months pretending it's you in one of the GT40s, racing away into the dusk...

    First 3 from the Donington Historic and the last 2 from the Silverstone Classic. I've also managed to go to hill climbing at Shelsley Walsh, GT's at Silverstone and Le Mans this year so I think I've done pretty well motorsport-wise. All pictures taken on a first generation Olympus tough camera. Impressed myself with the pictures as it has no special lens at all.

    ETA: The third picture was taken by my dad with a proper slr camera. Thought it looked out of place with my pictures.
