IGNITION Festival of Motoring | 4th – 6th August 2017 | SEC

IGNITION Festival of Motoring returns to the SEC, Glasgow this summer – bigger, faster and louder.  Bringing you more cars, more bikes, more stunts, more viewing areas, more manufacturers and dealers and a brand new family friendly interactive driving area, it’s the perfect day out for all the family.

IGNITION is a true celebration of all things motoring and our specially constructed street circuit gives you the unique opportunity to get up close to the sight, sound and smell of everything from rally cars to Formula 1, supercars to classic cars, motorbikes and all things wacky and wonderful.

This year’s event will pay homage to Scotland’s rich rally heritage by uniting some of the sports’ most famous icons in our Rally Gods spectacular. Boasting an impressive six World Rally Championships between them, legends Ari Vatanen, Markku Alen, Miki Biasion, Timo Salonen and Stig Blomqvist will bring their championship winning cars to the streets of Glasgow for an unmissable rally spectacle, with more drivers still to be announced.
