The Inaugral IGNITION Festival of Motoring 2016 event takes to the streets of Glasgow from the 5th to 7th August
Organised by the team behind Top Gear Live, IGNITION Festival of Motoring 2016 is a brand new motoring event which will be based at the SECC and aims to be the most exciting and ambitious motor show ever to be staged in Scotland.
Ignition festival of Motoring 2016 – What’s on?
The sight and awesome sound of a Red Bull Racing Formula 1 racing car for starters as Scottish F1 star David Coulthard will demonstrate a Red Bull Racing RB7 on the specially constructed Street Circuit. Giving car enthusiasts the opportunity to see and hear a Formula 1 racing car up close.
There will be further track action from a wild selection of race, rally and super cars and power laps by Top Gear’s tame racing driver The Stig on the roads around the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre and SSE Hydro Arena. Creating Glasgow’s first ever street circuit.
The Top Gear Live Stunt team will bring their supercharged excitement to the live action zone while a Supercar Pavillion put together by Top Gear magazine will display the finest supercars and hypercars – from Bugatti to Pagani (to name just two).
Scotland is one of only five countries to have produced World Champions on two, three and four wheels – an achievement celebrated at IGNITION festival of motoring 2016. One of the many car displays will include a collection of local hero and World Rally Champion Colin McRae’s rally cars.
Classic car fans will find their favourites in the Classic and Vintage Hall which will be filled with mouth-watering machines from the great marques of the past. It will also showcase some of the finest classics from selected car club members.
The test car facility will allow visitors to get behind the wheel themselves. There’s even a young driver area to satisfy the appetite of the next generation of drivers.
