Now into its 8th year, the Scottish Ford Live & Track Day and Show, sponsored by Elite Automotive – in association with the Central & East and North East of Scotland RSOC Regional Groups - has grown year on year with 2016 acting as the biggest and best event yet. Up to 150 cars will take to the Knockhill track and some 300 plus Fords of all ages will be on show. We welcomed all Ford models, young and old, with participating Clubs/Owners travelling from as far afield as Durham and Oxford just to showcase their vehicles.
This event is also another of our fantastic 2018 Family Fun days with a mini funfair, simulator, face painting and bouncy castle to make sure kids of all ages are entertained. This year, we are improving further on the number of cars participating and expanding the diversity of vehicles on show.

What is Scottish Ford Live?
Scottish Ford live is a car track day and show where we welcome hundreds of Ford models from up and down the country, and beyond, to celebrate the famous Ford brand – both on-track and off – all in association with the Central & East and North East of Scotland RSOC regional groups.
What will l see at Scottish Ford Live?
It is two events in one! The main live activity of the day is, of course, the track day sessions where you will see individual car owners take to the famous twists and dips of the Knockhill track behind the wheel of a vast array of vehicles including Citroen, Renault, Subaru, BMW and Honda. We’ll also have dedicated Ford only sessions where you’ll see some of the most iconic Ford models being put through their paces on track including RS Escorts, Cosworths, Fiestas, Capris and much, much more.
Off-track is event number two! You will see upwards of 300 Ford cars on display, both from private individuals and Ford Owners’ Car Clubs – all with a single aim – to showcase their pride and joy to an enthusiastic audience. The man-hours alone spent on prepping these cars for the Show ‘n’ Shine element of the show is staggering, and quite simply, it is hard to believe that some of the cars are more than 40 years old, such is the pristine condition of their presentation.
Why should l come to Scottish Ford Live?
It’s a great family day out for all Ford fans! If you ever had a Ford or own a Ford, this event is for you! It’s very much like a time warp as you stroll along the rows and rows of some of the most iconic cars the planet has ever seen, such as MK1 and II Escorts, RS2000s and Sierra Cosworth RS500s. As well as the old cars, there will be plenty of the newer Focus and Fiesta ST lining the paddocks – in every conceivable colour you could imagine. It really is a Ford Owners’ paradise, and even if you are not a Ford fan, it's great to see how like-minded people and Car Clubs can come together to share in a common aim – to celebrate all things, Ford!
How To Take Part: We've launched a new Online Clubstand System to give clubs complete control over their attendances at events. Club Admins can now create their own clubs and at a glance see how many of their members are signed up to events. Over time Knockhill will be adding more functionality to this system based on your feedback. For those already registered on the online system, you DO NOT need to register again. Simply login with your existing ID and password. To register simply follow the instructions below:
For Club Admins:

- You will then be assigned a Club ID – please keep this safe as it will be needed by your members to sign up to the club.
- Simply pass on your Club ID to your members which they will input when registering online and therefore linking them to your club.
- Currently the only function of the admin page is to allow you to view the club members signed up for each event. We welcome any feedback you have on what you need from the system as admins. The goal is to make life easier for you all!
- Individuals who are not part of a club must sign up as an admin first and then as a member using the Club ID provided, so you can then book into events.
- Admins of car clubs must also sign up as a member using the steps below to confirm your own attendances.
