Big­ger, bet­ter and all-ac­tion

Last year’s in­au­gu­ral event was a huge suc­cess and this year, in ad­di­tion to the sprint track on the banks of the Clyde, there’s also a gen­uine ur­ban tar­mac rally stage, where ex-works cars will bat­tle to set the fastest times of the week­end.

A gath­er­ing of cham­pi­ons

No fewer than five World Rally Cham­pi­ons – Ari Vata­nen, Miki Bi­a­sion, Timo Salo­nen, Markku Alen and Stig Blomqvist, plus five-times Bri­tish Rally Cham­pion Jimmy Mcrae, will be re­united with the cars they raced to vic­tory and pit­ted against each other against the clock.

Two great an­niver­saries

As Fer­rari cel­e­brates its 70th birth­day, the show prom­ises ‘an in­cred­i­ble dis­play made up of the great­est cars ever to wear the pranc­ing horse.’ Also, Scot­tish rac­ing pow­er­house Ecurie Ecosse marks 60 years since it scored a Le Mans 1-2 with a cel­e­bra­tion of en­durance rac­ers headed up by its Le Mans-win­ning Jaguars.

Get in­volved

A For­mula One pit crew will be on hand to ex­plain the art of the pit stop – then you and your mates can at­tempt one against the clock.
