SCOTLAND’S first ever motorsport venue roars back into life for the Bo’ness Revival Weekend this Saturday and Sunday and under 15s go free.

The two-day event sees more than 100 cars enter the Bo’ness Hill Climb, while another 300 classic cars will be on display on the Sunday.

First used in 1932, Bo’ness Hill Climb, situated on the Kinneil Estate near Falkirk, has become a prominent feature in UK motor racing history.

Each year the gates are opened to welcome an array of drivers, classic cars, and an immense adrenaline rush, as the entrants rush past in a bid to record the fastest time.

Now in its 11th year, the 2018 event promises, once again, to provide a superb day out.

A thrilling experience, stand trackside as the likes of the early Austin 7s, Bentleys and Riley machines speed by, competing in 10 varied classes representing every era of motorsport history. There’s no other feeling like it.

Although the adrenaline filled competitive hill climb absorbs much of the attention, Sunday’s classic car show is every bit as compelling.

A special year for Jaguar - celebrating 70 years of the XK and 50 years of the XJ6 - the Jaguar Driver’s Club and Jaguar Enthusiast’s Club are sure to stage a superb tribute prepared.

And if you want to know more about the cars on display, head to the Heritage Arena where Wayne Scott and Sam Colman will be delving deeper into the history of some of the rarest and most extraordinary cars to have graced our roads.
