FORMULA 1 cars once driven by world champions like Sebastian Vettel, Michael Schumacher and Jenson Button, will grace the streets of Glasgow at Scotland's new IGNITION Festival of Motoring.

At set times throughout the three days of the August festival they will be powered around a special street circuit laid out on roads between the city's exhibition and conference centre and the nearby SSE Hydro Arena.

Among the cars will be a Camel Lotus 101, as driven by three times champion Nelson Piquet in 1989, as well as the car that put Michael Schumacher on the F1 map - the Benetton 193B from 1993.

They will be joined by 2011's Red Bull RB7, which will be driven by Scot David Coulthard on Saturday and Sunday, August 6 and 7 - and by Sergio Sette Camara from the Red Bull Junior team on the opening Friday.

The grid will be completed by Jenson Button's 2004 BAR Honda, which took the Brit to third in that year's drivers' championship, and the Williams FW08 that helped Keke Rosberg to the title in 1982.
