What's Happening at Donington Park Classic Festival 2021?
We've got so much to tell you and so much planned, we've had to break these articles down into separate News Flashes as each exciting element is confirmed!
CRMC Racing At It's Finest!
So for News Flash #4 we're going to remind you about CRMC racing, where you will see some of the finest talent racing classic motorcycles. And these are rare and valuable classic motorcycles, out on track rather than retired in a museum!
Donington’s Annual Classic Bike Festival meeting will be held over the weekend 31st July and 1st August with a packed programme of over forty races and Parades including rounds of the ACU Classic and Post Classic Championships. Amongst the early entries are:
- double ACU Champion Joe Barton campaigning the Minnovation Racing machinery,
- Classic Racer of the Year Ant Hart,
- Multiple ACU Champion Phil Atkinson,
- 2020 ACU Post Classic Champion John Dieterman and
- 2020 ACU Classic Champion Rich Molnar.
Backing up this sparkling array of solo talent will be the spectacular Classic sidecar crews who have two races each day. Kieran Clarke is setting the sidecar pace this year, and this in his first season of driving the BMW outfit.
- Special guest at this year’s Festival will be triple TT winner and former works Honda rider Alex George
- Steve Parrish, TT and Grand Prix racer who is racing in the Lansdown races
