Saturday 25th - Sunday 26th August, 2018

The 2018 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship which celebrates 60 years this year,  will take place over the weekend of Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August 2018 at Knockhill - with the event being sponsored by Lokring Northern (UK) for the third consecutive year. Whenever the BTCC rolls into Knockhill, it brings controversy, rivalry and flat out hammer-and-tongs racing that enthrals, excites and entertains, in equal measure and our event promises to bring more of the same. Also, a superb support line-up featuring Porsche, Ginetta and British F4 Championship racing, will accompany three thrilling BTCC races. 

It's an all-star weekend as names like Turkington, Plato, Sutton, Collard and our very own Rory Butcher take to the track in a vital weekend for the championship. We'll also be hosting a very special showcar showcase display on Sunday, where you can see a car from every decade of BTCC as well as a sample of cars from our regular showcar events at Knockhill.
