Family fun at Donington Rally this Sunday!
Donington Park’s first motorsport event of the year, the Imperial Commercials Volkswagen Donington Rally, takes place this Sunday (6 March) and there will be plenty to see both on and off the track!
A total of 80 cars are expected to do battle across eight stages throughout the day on track, with a mixture of old and new machinery including plenty of rally favourites including Subaru Imprezas, Mitsubishi Evos and Ford Escorts. There will be sideways action and power slides galore as the crews go for glory on challenging layouts which will use not only the circuit, but some of the surrounding areas also, making it a unique way to start the year.
As its Mother’s Day, Donington is also putting on a traditional Sunday Roast in the Pitstop Diner, priced at £7.95 a head, with all the usual trimmings!
Meanwhile, off track there is plenty of family entertainment to keep spectators of all ages entertained. In the Paddock Suite, there will be a selection of vehicles on display courtesy of event sponsor Imperial Commercials Volkswagen Van Centre. All-new Caddy and Transporter models will be showcased, as well as a CR35 Double Cap Tipper from VW’s largest model range, the Crafter. The class-leading Amarok pick-up will also be out and about during the event, and those interested can book test drives with a salesman present in the Paddock Suite.
For younger visitors, there will be further activities in the Paddock Suite including a bouncy castle and race simulators, while a selection of trade stands will allow visitors to purchase motorsport memorabilia including model cars, T Shirts and caps.
Entry to the Imperial Commercials Volkswagen Donington Rally is £10 upon entry to the circuit, with free admission to children aged 13 and under.
