Ignition

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. Mark Webber will be taking to the track on Friday 5 August ahead of Friday evening entertainment where Premium Plus and IGNITE Club ticket holders will enjoy an on-stage chat with motorsport personalities Mark Webber, Shane Lynch and Gordon Shedden. Red Bull Junior Team driver Sergio Sette Camara will be doing laps in the RB7 on Friday 5 August before Scotland’s own Formula One star David Coulthard takes to the circuit on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7, 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, will inject further thrills into IGNITION as they bring excitement and flair to the live action zone while a Performance Grid curated by Top Gear Magazine will display the finest supercars from McLarens to Lamborghini’s.

Team Japspeed 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.
