New festival planned to highlight Scotland
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.
