Youngsters from across Scotland visited Crail Airfield last week for an exciting event organised by the STV Appeal and Supercars Scotland.

Forty children were invited along to the event after being chosen by STV and Glasgow City Council.

The children, aged between seven and 17, were not only treated to a ride in a supercar, but there was lots of entertainment on hand too at the event, which had support from MCR Pathways, Glasgow City Council, Farmfoods, Kingsbarns Golf Links and Crail Golfing Society, among many others.

X Factor finalist Nicholas McDonald was there to perform, as were young Scottish five-piece Rewind, who proved hugely popular.

Disney characters Mickey and Minnie were also there to join in the fun and the amazing skills of fire blower Jordon Bryce kept everyone captivated.

The youngsters had the opportunity to take part in Hot Laps in the track cars and super cars, while the older children were given the chance of a lifetime to get behind the wheel of a BMW M3 or a Porsche Boxster.

Each child there on the day was also given a remote control supercar to take home too.

The STV Appeal supports projects across the country, helping to make a positive difference to the lives of children living in poverty in Scotland.
