Highlights include the Brooklands Reunion and Ignition Festival
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.
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.
