David Coulthard wowed the crowds in Glas­gow at the week­end.

The re­tired F1 star fromTwyn­holm made a rare ap­pear­ance on home soil at the Ig­ni­tion Fes­ti­val of Mo­tor­ing, held at the SECC.

DC got be­hind the wheel of the RB7 which Se­bas­tian Vet­tel used to win the world cham­pi­onship for Red Bull Rac­ing in 2011.

Coulthard, who now works as a co-com­men­ta­tor on Chan­nel 4’s grand prix cov­er­age, drove demo laps on a spe­cially built street cir­cuit around the iconic SSE Hy­dro and Clyde Au­di­to­rium – more com­monly known as the Ar­madillo.

He also ex­cited fans by per­form­ing donuts, sign­ing au­to­graphs and pos­ing for self­ies.

DC ap­peared on two of the three days the fes­ti­val was held which of­fered motorsport nuts the chance to see some iconic cars in action.

Also per­form­ing at the show were Lochfoot ral­ly­cross team Al­batec Rac­ing who took along a pair of their Peu­geot 208 RX Su­per­cars.

Team prin­ci­pal Andy Scott and Euro­pean Ral­ly­cross Cham­pi­onTommy Rus­tad drove the cars, de­light­ing the large crowd with their power and wheel­spin.
