On the Championship Raceday at Donington on the 25th March there were six races on the programme of which only two had capacity grids while a couple had less than ten competitors. My complaint, though, is not with the racing but with the prices demanded.
On entry to the circuit I paid £8 for a trackside enclosure plus £2 for infield viewing and a further £3 for a paddock transfer. To rub salt into the wound, there was an advertisment for the Silverstone Race Day on April 8th where the prices were cheaper than those at Donington. I for one thought I would never see the day when Donington’s prices would become more expensive than Silverstone’s.
On looking through the 1990 Donington fixtures diary, I find that the price for an advanced ticket for the WSPC race on September 2nd has increased from £11 to £15.
In these times of poll tax and high interest rates, I would like to know how Two Four Sports Limited can justify these staggering prices. If they continue to increase at this alarming rate, I will be forced to become an armchair spectator.
