A museum honouring the racing career of David Coulthard will be shut down, its curator has announced.

A museum honouring the racing career of David Coulthard will be shut down, its curator has announced.

Four years ago, the Scottish racer's sister Lynsay stopped looking after the museum on behalf of the family business because she moved away from their birthplace Twynholm.

Fan Wendy McKenzie took over the duties, but she has announced the museum's closure "with a very heavy heart".

It is rumoured in the Scottish press that the reason for the closure is the decline in interest following 13-time race winner Coulthard's retirement as a race driver.

McKenzie added: "Short of a miracle, it will not be opening to the general public again."

37-year-old Coulthard remains an advisor to Red Bull's F1 team in 2009 and will have a punditry role for British television.
