New fes­ti­val planned to highlight Scot­land

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Scot­land’s place in mo­tor­sport his­tory will be marked in a new static event to be held on June 2/3 at In­ver­aray Cas­tle in Ar­gyll.

The Ar­gyll Fes­ti­val of Per­for­mance will show cars and driv­ers from For­mula 1, Le Mans, Indy­cars, Tour­ing Cars as well as ral­ly­ing.

Event di­rec­tor Bill Telford said: “Scot­land has an en­vi­able rep­u­ta­tion in mo­tor­sport but, as yet, there has never been an event that cel­e­brates this. In year one F1 will be the theme and Scot­land boasts some of the big­gest names in­clud­ing Jim Clark, Jackie Ste­wart and David Coulthard. The Jim Clark Trust will be our cho­sen char­ity in 2018.”

Cars con­firmed in­clude the Lo­tus 18 raced by Innes Ire­land, Scot­land’s first GP win­ner, the Lo­tus 32B Clark raced in the 1965 Tas­man Se­ries and Tyrrell 001, raced by Ste­wart in late 1970 and 1971.
