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.
