Lewis' vision for a petrolhead playground dates back 20 years to when he first started driving. We hope to provide events for real enthusiasts with a passion for all things automotive.

iGNiTiON recently relocated from Derbyshire to a larger premises in Rutland which currently houses display and parking spaces for around 150 cars, and seating for 40+ people alongside spaces to mingle and chat.

With the new venue we plan to introduce a new format, and will be starting with a monthly cars and coffee meet rather than the regular opening hours of the old site.

Who Are We?


Lewis has a passion for cars that borders an obsession, having owned around 90 cars in the 20 years since passing his test. He loves all things Italian and is a die-hard Alfisti (Alfa Romeo fan-boy). Lewis gets his hands dirty with the oily bits, has restored cars in the past and still does most of his own maintenance. He also loves road tripping in cool cars, especially through Europe, so look out for iGNiTiON trips in the future!

Friends and Family

Introducing..those who shall not be named!
Juggling full time work amidst operating a cafe and events business has been no mean feat and couldn't have been done without roping in friends and family who have been imperative to the running of iGNiTiON and ability to maintain high standards to be proud of.
