Each year since 2016 we've brought our event style videography to the Donington Historic Festival, which takes place annually at the Donington Park race circuit in Leicestershire. We're commissioned by the event organisers, Historic Promotions, to produce the official highlights video for the event, which is primarily used as a marketing tool for the following year.
As videographers we go beyond the fence to capture the race action from some truly unique vantage points across the length of the 1.9 mile circuit. Our brief is to capture the race action from each car category along with the demonstrations, parades and trade stands placed throughout the festival site. We also gather short soundbites from the drivers to give us a better insight in to their drive and passion for what being at an event like this means to them.
The festival is a vintage themed event featuring a variety of historic motorsport spanning about 9 different decades from the 1930s right up to the 2000s. The races that take place are officially timed with the winners recognised on the event podium.
The festival prides itself in being more than a race circuit event by putting on parades and classic rally car and go kart demos. There's also a chance for crowds and enthusiasts to get right up close to the action both in the grandstands and by the paddock area where the race teams maintain and and prepare the classic racers.
Our footage from the 2018 festival is still currently in post production. We'll update this page as soon as it's ready. Meantime, enjoy our highlights film from last year.
