Ignition Festival Of Motoring


IGNITION festival of motoring is a brand new event coming to the SECC Glasgow on 5 – 7 August.  As well as paying homage to some of the world’s finest motor sporting heroes, the event will showcase all aspects of motoring.

Iconic rally driver Jimmy McRae will inaugurate the specially constructed Street Circuit in Colin McRae’s original Subaru which is due to feature in the festival as part of the special Colin McRae Tribute Collection.   Scotland’s own F1 star David Coulthard will then take to the circuit in the Red Bull Racing RB7, giving fans a unique opportunity to see and hear a Formula One machine up close. 

Alongside the displays of classic cars, supercars, rally cars, motorcycles and more, The Top Gear Live Stunt team will inject further thrills into IGNITION as they bring excitement and flair to the live action zone while a Supercar Grid curated by Top Gear magazine will display the finest supercars and hypercars from Bugattis to Zondas. 

Team Japseed and driver Shane Lynch will also be there all weekend, showing off a host of drift demonstrations. Add to this a test drive facility and a young driver area, IGNITION promises to be one of the most exciting weekends on this year’s motoring calendar.
