Road - IGNITION on

Jim and Paul

A couple of weel kent faces were in Glasgow yesterday morning for a press preview of the forthcoming IGNITION motoring and motor sports festival which is scheduled to be held at the SECC on 5-7 August.

It was announced that Jim McRae will drive Colin's 1995 World Championship winning Subaru Impreza around the specially created street circuit - but probably not at the same times as David Coulthard will be driving his F1 Red Bull RB6.

And giving a short preview of what to expect from the 'Top Gear Live Stunt Team', some time rally driver Paul Swift and his team took to the floor with some Fords and put on a tyre smoking and screeching display of precision driving and control.

Jim's obviously all gee-d up for it saying: “Scotland is steeped in motor sport heritage, with champions on two, three and four wheels. It’s an exciting event for Glasgow and motoring fans north of the border. I’m looking forward to getting behind the wheel on the Street Circuit – it will really bring the event to life and give the audience a unique experience.”
