The Ingliston Revival Festival is a two-day classic and prestige motoring festival that takes place at The Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th May 2017.

Set in the circuits heyday of the 1960’s, the Ingliston Revival will celebrate the halcyon days of Ingliston Racing Circuit in a weekend for the whole family. See cars racing on track and on display, soak up the atmosphere in the food village while the children play on the vintage fun fair.

The event celebrates the original, infamous Ingliston Racing Circuit and re-ignites the halcyon days of the venue. We re-live the nostalgia and evoke emotion of motor sport from a bygone era.

New for 2017: The Revival welcomes The Scottish Motor Show, the world’s oldest motor show event which will showcase the latest car models. Taking up 8,500 m2 of indoor space, the Scottish Motor Show is a great additional feature for Ingliston Revival ticket holders.

    Very disappointed. Went on Saturday. Took my dad and was looking forward to a great day full of motoring nostalgia. The show was mediocre at best. Perhaps calling it Revival is punching somewhat above its weight, bringing thoughts of a North-of-the-border show similar in concept and execution as the Goodwood Revival.
    The advertising looked great, but very few cars to look around and a haphazard layout that was laid out by someone who really tried hard to use just about every barrier held in stock, the reality was that at £20 entrance fee for each adult, we all expected a bit more.
    The poor weather, admittedly, dampened the morning, but hey, plenty of things to see and you don’t notice the weather…..oh, hold on, there wasn’t much to see… pretty boring. Speaking of boring, the track ‘action’ could only be described in a similar way….the track, although nicely done, is boring for spectators. Sorry.
    Funfairs don’t interest me at a car show, soz.
    Probably fine for the competitors, although I suspect and indeed heard many of them were frustrated with the mediocre track layout and the multiple chicanes to frustrate any ideas of actually driving their cars properly.
    Never mind, we thought, at least there will be plenty of trade stalls to spend some money on car stuff…..oh dear, only a couple of stalls selling car polish, that was it really.
    Yes, there were some very nice Mclarens exhibited by McLaren Glasgow and a solitary Tesla and, to be honest, if it wasn’t for those I’d have been even more disappointed.
    Food was available but very pricey; so we didn’t bother getting fleeced further. At some points there seemed to be more bored staff in dayglo jackets than there were paying public. The entry system seemed to be struggling to get even the smallest queue of people through the entrance in good time. A tiny queue of about 20 people still saw us waiting for 10 minutes.
    We watched the ‘stunt show’ but were underwhelmed with that too; a cheesy enactment of ‘The Italian Job’ with three minis just going up & down the road doing handbrake turns at the ends just wasn’t exciting to watch, sorry. A London taxi doing doughnuts was mildly entertaining for about 10 seconds, that was about it.
    I’m sure there are a few people who have tried their very best and put hard work into organising this event, but I’m sorry, for us Ingliston Revival was a let-down, it needs a re-think.
    When we can attend a small local show like the Ladybank classic car show for £6 entry and see much more & enjoy the day more, the £20-entry Ingliston Revival looks more and more like a self-licking lollipop.
    Unless it attracts more car exhibitors, more traders, has a better layout it’s not going to survive with repeat visitors year-on-year. We won’t be going again.
