Durrant, Lewis and Adams amongst stars to feature in drive-in darts exhibitions in Scotland

Glen Durrant, Martin Adams and Adrian Lewis have been named amongst a number of stars to feature in two upcoming drive-in darts exhibitions in Scotland.

Following the success of PDC Europe’s Drive-In Darts Gala, held in Germany at the end of June, fans longing the return of sport with spectators will be able to attend exhibitions in both Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Michael van Gerwen claimed the spoils at the inaugural Drive-In Darts Gala last month, with the innovation catching on and receiving its opportunity in the UK.

The Parking Lot Social will host two tournaments which both witness host nations Scotland face England, with a capacity of 250 vehicles being permitted for each event.

The initial staging will take place at Edinburgh’s Dalkeith Country Park on Thursday August 20, before the roadshow moves to the Skyport Park & Ride on Thursday September 3.

Multiple-time world champions Adams, Durrant and Lewis will represent England, while reigning Dutch Open champion Ross Montgomery will appear in Scottish colours. Montgomery’s teammates are still to be confirmed.

Rivalries will be renewed in Scotland as the competing players partake in a number of singles and doubles matches whilst vying to be crowned champions.

Spectators will watch the tournament from their own vehicles, and will arrive and park in front of a custom-made performance set featuring two 40ft screens.

The renowned MC Paul Booth will front the coverage, with his introductions and commentary being transmitted directly to vehicles using wireless headphones and a dedicated radio channel.

Tickets for the Scotland vs England Darts Classic start at £39 per car and are available to purchase now via The Parking Lot Social’s website.
