Do you live, eat, and breathe classic cars, especially those from Europe? If you haven't heard of the Donington Historic Festival, you're about to be in for the treat of a lifetime. 

Europeans, in general, love to celebrate their rich automotive history. After all, it's where the automobile was born and first took to the streets. Britain quickly took to the car scene, including holding races in venues throughout the island nation. One way people in the country, and from all over Europe, celebrate this heritage is through this annual festival. The fame of this event has only been increasing with each passing year as it continues to grow in size and influence. 

Quite a few racers head to the Donington Historic Festival each year, which is usually held in the late spring. They also come with a classic car or motorcycle, because that's what organizers allow to race. As you can imagine, this is quite the treat for anyone who likes old cars. Even better, spectators show up with their classic rides as well.
