For­mer Bri­tish Tour­ing Car cham­pi­ons Gabriele Tar­quini and Frank Biela will at­tend Knock­hill’s David Les­lie Su­per Tour­ing Car Fes­ti­val next month.

Tar­quini, cham­pion in 1994, will com­pete in an ex-david Les­lie Honda Ac­cord from 1996 in the event, while Frank Biela is set to com­plete demon­stra­tion laps in an Audi A4 quat­tro. The 1996 BTCC ti­tle-win­ner will be guest of hon­our and also meet with fans and hold au­to­graph ses­sions at the Septem­ber 10/11 event.

Knock­hill direc­tor of events Stu­art Gray said: “I’m ab­so­lutely de­lighted that Gabriele will be join­ing us for the event, and not only that, to have him in a race car is just in­cred­i­ble.

“As well as some of the star cars from the past, we now have a num­ber of star driv­ers too. It’s all shap­ing up to be an amaz­ing week­end of rac­ing.”
