Ignition Festival of Motoring

By Kombi Campers on July 17, 2016

The Ignition Festival of motoring is an entirely new event which is coming the SECC this year. Running from the 5th to the 7th of August, the festival aims to bring the biggest names in motor sport together as well as showcasing all aspects of motoring. 

Big names include the iconic Jimmy MCrae who’ll be taking the first lap around the specially designed street circuit inside Colin McRae’s original Subaru; which is due to feature in the festival as a part of a special tribute to Colin McRae. If that isn’t enough to whet your appetite Mark Webber will be taking to the track on Friday the 5th of August and will be taking to the stage for some on stage chat that same Friday evening with Shane Lynch and Gordon Shedden; please note though that this event is for Premium Plus ticket holders as well as IGNITE club members. If you’re still not impressed then there will also be Red Bull Junior Team driver Sergio Sette Camara who will be doing laps in the RB7 on Friday 5 August before Scotland’s very own Formula One star David Coulthard takes to the circuit on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7, giving fans a fantastic chance to see and hear what a real Formula One machine sounds like up close.

If the sound of a revving Formula One engine isn’t enough to get the hairs on the back of your neck to stand up then fear not as the Top Gear stunt team is on hand to bring even more excitement and flair as they take to the live action zone. Top Gear Magazine will also be presenting a special performance grid where you can your chance to see 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, the amount of which you can do and see is endless!

Ignition is shaping up to be a haven for all motoring enthusiasts as well those looking for a unique family day out. We here at Kombi Campers would hate to miss out on all the fun which is why we will also be there with our very own display area giving you a chance to see some of our campers up close. So if you are going to be attending Ignition (and to be honest why wouldn’t you?) then make sure to come by and see us for the chance to get an exclusive discount, or maybe you just want a selfie with one of our campers to make all of your friends jealous! Whatever the reason, we’ll be there and happy to chat with you about our campers which we are very passionate about!
