Scottish Motorshow , 22-23 May

Postby neuromancer » Thu May 20, 2010 11:28 am

This weekend's Knockhill event is the Scottish Motorshow.

If you haven't been before, it's usualy a mix of Motor Dealer stands, Club stands (no MX5 club stand I guess?) and some on-track displays.

Of interest this weekend is an attempt to set a new outright lap record at Knockhill using an ex Pedro De La Rosa Formula One car. Other attractions are a 180mph Beetle.

The F1 car is his 2003 Arrows. I hope they get the right weather for it. They're going to make the attempt on both days.

Any idea who the driver is and did they break the outright lap record?

The car was driven by a guy called tony handsford (the slightly plump guy in the White race suit in the photos)
I don't think any records were broken by the car. Probably too hot, cold, dry, damp or something. Still it was spectacular to hear ( see my link above)
