The public will get to see a model of a motorsport heritage centre to celebrate the history of the Rest and Be Thankful in Argyll when it goes on display this week.
The beauty spot in Argyll was an internationally known motorsport venue for many years and former Scottish champions raced there early in their careers.
A contemporary building is being proposed for the motorsport heritage centre and a specially commissioned scale model will be unveiled at the exhibition.
Also on display will be architectural drawings, a “fly through” clip and a championship winning single seater racing car.
The exhibition, at Helensburgh and Lomond Civic Centre, will be opened by John Cleland, former British Touring Car champion, at 10am on Thursday. It will be open to the public from Friday.
Douglas Anderson, project director, said: “The heritage centre will be a multi-purpose building celebrating Scotland’s outstanding motorsport heritage and will be a major economic and tourist asset to the area.
“The Rest and be Thankful was an internationally known motorsport venue for many years and former Scottish champions raced there early in their careers. One of these was Sir Jackie Stewart who has given his backing to the project.”
After the exhibition has been in Helensburgh for a month, it will tour Scotland.
The centre would lie within the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park area and meetings have taken place with its representatives.
Mr Anderson said: “They seem to like the idea and are encouraging us to apply for planning permission. We will put an application in once the exhibition has done its tour of Scotland.
“Then it is a question of getting funding.”
Mr Anderson is well known in UK motorsport circles as the man who brought the Monte Carlo Rally back to Scotland in 2011, and has continued to co-ordinate the Scottish Start and UK leg ever since.
The building’s designers are the award winning architectural design practice KennedyTwaddle.
