A few other stand-out points about the 2016 event:

New Spectator Banking
At BSB you'll beable to enjoy a new view at the Hairpin. We've created a new teired banking directly behind the Hairpin that provides a complete panorama from Hislop's all the way through to the start-finish straight. You'll also be in prime postion to catch the big screen - an added bonus.

New Exit Roads
The major improvement on last year will see two lanes of traffic leave from the Knockhill hairpin. We have widened the road (behind the new banking) to effectively double the amount of traffic that can leave via this exit. It is hoped the wider two lane exit will speed up the leaving process considerably.

New Shelters
Just in-case the glorious sunshine abaits for a while, you'll be able to take cover in our recently installed shelters at Duffus Dip and Scotsman corners, adding to the existing Clark and Hairpin shelters. Hopefully, these will only be used to shelter from the blistering sunshine come raceday.

Blondie Tribute Band
There will also be an hour-long live music set after the final race of the day, at the Hairpin (Sunday only). Top Blondie tribute band 'Dirty Harry' will perform iconic Blondie tracks including Call Me, Heart of Glass and One Way or Another. This is a free to attend event as part of your BSB entry fee.

Touch the Track
For the second year running, we'll be opening the gates to the track after the final race on Sunday 26th June to do an American style touch-the-track event. Spectators can flood onto the track and walk the famous twists and dips of Knockhill to view the circuit from a rider's perspective - a brilliant way to finish off your BSB weekend!

Extended Opening Hours
A number of food courts/vans/outlets will also be staying open for longer. So instead of rushing off and being caught in the exit process, sit back, enjoy some refreshments and reflect on all of the day’s highlights, whilst listening to some music.

Arrive and Drive Karting
Our Karting Centre will also be open to 6pm, allowing adults and kids to participate in a spot of racing of their very own in our new fleet of Sodi kids and adult karts. Places can be booked throughout the day from £10 for 10-minute sessions. Simply call into the Kart Centre on the day for timings and availability.

Advanced booking discounts apply to all pre-booked tickets either online or by phone (01383 723337). Alternatively, tickets can be purchased on the day at the gate.

Check out the latest features, news, videos and images on the lead up to the event; and we hope to see you here for a fantastic bike racing extravaganza!
