IGNITION Festival of Motoring launched in 2016, and will be making its anticipated return from 4-6 August 2017 at SEC Glasgow. As well as paying homage to some of the world’s finest motor sporting heroes, the event showcases all aspects of motoring.
Our 2016 event made the headlines with highlights including: iconic rally driver Jimmy McRae inaugurated the specially constructed Street Circuit in Colin McRae’s original Subaru as part of the special Colin McRae Tribute Collection; Mark Webber took to the track ahead of our Friday evening entertainment where he enjoyed an on-stage chat with motorsport personalities Shane Lynch and Gordon Shedden; Red Bull Junior Team driver Sergio Sette Camara completed laps in the RB7 before Scotland’s own Formula One star David Coulthard got behind the wheel over the weekend, 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 Stunt team, led by Paul Swift, injected further thrills into IGNITION as they brought excitement and flair to the live action zone while a Performance Grid curated by Top Gear Magazine displayed the finest supercars from McLarens to Lamborghinis.
Team Japspeed and driver Shane Lynch were there all weekend, showing off a host of drift demonstrations. Add to this a test drive facility and packed out motoring exhibition, IGNITION proved to be one of the most exciting weekends on the year’s motoring calendar.
Our 2017 show looks set to be another screamer, with lots of announcements coming over the next few months.
