>Racing returned to Donington Park for the opening Masters Historic UK event on the weekend of April 2 – 3.

The first venue for this year’s Masters Historic Racing in the UK was held at Donington Park over the Easter weekend of April 2 – 3.

The sunny but cold weekend treated drivers and enthusiasts to seven glorious Masters races.

Despite crowds being absent this year, fans enjoyed all the action through Master Historic Racing Donington Park 2021 live stream on Saturday afternoon.

Masters Endurance Legends – Race 1

Jack Dex overcame all the challenges thrown his way by Steve Tandy’s Lola B12/60 and even teammate Max Lynn in another BR Engineering BR01 to claim a well-deserved win in the first Masters Endurance Legends race at Donington Park.

Starting from pole, Dex’s first trial was to stay ahead of the fast-starting Tandy. When the Lola spun off at Redgate, the next challenge came from Max Lynn providing mid-race pressure on the lead. When Dex crossed the chequered flag, he was a full 21 seconds ahead.

Towards the end of the race, Lynn was pressured strongly to keep his position from his father, Shaun, who was in another BR01 P2 prototype. 

Coming after the BR01 1-2-3 finishes, the MG-Lola EX257 driven by Mike Newton came in fourth. Next was Richard Cook in the Riley & Scott Mk3C, and in the last of the BR01s was Richard Meins.

Masters Endurance Legends – Race 2

Despite the pressure coming from the BR01s of Jack Dex, Max Lynn and Shaun Lynn, Steve Tandy received a well-deserved victory.

Mike Newton’s MG-Lola EX257 showed form in the first share of the race, placing pressure on the newer BR01s and Tandy’s ex-Dyson Racing Lola.
