Rutherglen Reformer - - Drive Time Extra - Au­gust event

For­mula 1 cars once driven by world cham­pi­ons like Se­bas­tian Vet­tel, Michael Schu­macher and Jenson But­ton, will grace the streets of Glas­gow at Scot­land’s new IG­NI­TION Festival of Mo­tor­ing.

At set times through­out the three days of the Au­gust festival they will be pow­ered around a spe­cial street cir­cuit laid out on roads be­tween the city’s Ex­hi­bi­tion and Con­fer­ence Cen­tre and the nearby SSE Hy­dro Arena.

Among the cars will be a Camel Lo­tus 101, as driven by three times cham­pion Nel­son Pi­quet in 1989, as well as the car that put Michael Schu­macher on the F1 map – the Benet­ton 193B from 1993.

They will be joined by 2011’s Red Bull RB7, which will be driven by David Coulthard on Satur­day and Sun­day, Au­gust 6 and 7 – and by Ser­gio Sette Ca­mara from the Red Bull Junior team on the open­ing Fri­day. The grid will be com­pleted by Jenson But­ton’s 2004 BAR Honda.
