It's ok yes. Not as good as the Silverstone Classic but not as stupidly priced either. Donnington is ok if the weather forecast is nice, it's a hell hole in wet windy weather for this event.

Did you end up going Spanky3? It was my first time and even though it was grey on the Saturday it was a good day. Here are some of my photos… https://www.flatoutmag.co.uk/news/donington-histor...

Nice pics..

A group of us went up on the saturday and stayed over then visited the museum on the sunday morning - I had one of the caterhams in the infield display area. The racing was good and a few interesting cars on the infield. The event has the feel of a mini le mans classic - much much smaller crowd but nicely uncommercial and all very enjoyable. The Group B rally stuff was entertaining too, even if not all the cars were quite as they appeared. Weather permitting we may well go again next year.
