IGNITION FESTIVAL OF MOTORING
IGNITION festival of motoring is a brand new event coming to the SECC Glasgow on 5th to 7th August. As well as paying homage to some of the world’s finest motor sporting heroes, the event will showcase all aspects of motoring.
Iconic rally driver Jimmy Mcrae will inaugurate the specially constructed Street Circuit in Colin Mcrae’s original Subaru, which will feature in the show as part of the Colin Mcrae Tribute Collection. Scotland’s own Formula One star David Coulthard* will then take to the Street Circuit in the Red Bull Racing RB7, giving fans a unique opportunity to see and hear a Formula One machine up close. Visitors will be treated to a weekend packed with track action from a wild selection of race, rally and supercars.
The Top Gear Live Stunt Team will inject further thrills into IGNITION as they bring excitement to the live action zone while a Supercar Grid curated by Top Gear Magazine will display the finest supercars and hypercars, from Bugattis through to Zondas.
Team Japspeed – one of the largest professional drift teams in Europe – are also revving up to join the live action line up. Driver Shane Lynch, the renowned petrolhead who first came to fame as a member of Boyzone, is today a top competitor for the team. Expect to see the smoke, as live demonstrations take place across the weekend.
Motorbikes, classic cars and a motoring expo with a live test drive facility will all feature ensuring the three-day festival is one of the most exciting weekends on this year’s motoring calendar.
