Donington Park to host F2’s final UK round The FIA Formula Two Championship heads to Donington Park on 15/16 August – and fans are set for a feast of F2 racing in the final UK round of the 2009 season.
As it is spectators’ last opportunity to see F2 compete on British soil this year, Donington Park and MotorSport Vision have teamed up to offer fans an exclusive 2 for 1 deal on tickets for the event. Raceday tickets are on sale now for just £16 for adults – equivalent to £8 per person with our exclusive offer – plus entry is free for children under 16.
At the midway point of the season, Andy Soucek leads the championship after taking his second win of the season last time out at Brands Hatch. The overall standings are taking shape and it is the Red Bull-backed Canadian driver Robert Wickens and Austrian Philipp Eng who are chasing down Soucek’s lead. Wickens has returned to form in recent rounds but he has not stood on the top step of the podium since the inaugural event in Valencia, whilst Eng took his maiden victory at Brands Hatch.
A trio of drivers are joint fourth in the standings – Julien Jousse, Tobias Hegewald and Mirko Bortolotti will be hoping to relaunch their championship challenge with good results at Donington, whilst Mikhail Aleshin and Miloš Pavlović remain in touching distance of the leading pack.
Donington Park will host two thrilling Formula Two races, plus fans can meet the drivers at a free pit lane walkabout and autograph session on the Sunday (16 August). The FIA Formula Two Championship will be joined by a superb line-up of support races including the Historic Formula 2 Championship for cars from the 1967-78 era and a full grid of supercars in the GT Cup.
The main raceday will also include a special tribute to Henry Surtees, who tragically died after an accident during the second F2 race at Brands Hatch. Further details will be available shortly via the official Formula Two website.
