A long winter of tinkering and tuning is finally over, and the wraps can finally come off the Super Lap Scotland powered by Rockstar Energy Drink cars as the 2016 season starts in ernest. The Knockhill track will literally rumble as upwards of 10000 horsepower is unleashed on the unique twists, dips and turns of the British Championship Circuit. As well as six SLS Championship classes – each competing flat-out on track for that ‘Perfect Lap’ – our 1st Round will also see Hot Hatch Track Sessions, a BDC Drifting preview; as well as show cars competing in the Clean and Scene event; plus we’ll also see upwards of 100 pre-war classic sports cars take to the track for parades and demos.

Event Information

It’s the opening round of the year for the Super Lap Scotland Championship hopefuls. It will be the first opportunity for the elite competitors in each of the seven classes to stake a claim for 2016 Championship glory. The action will be fast, fraught and frantic. Elsewhere on the day, there will be a host of additional features both on and off-track. See the features tab for more info, but here’s a quick run through of what’s happening on the day:-

  • Super Lap Scotland powered by Rockstar Energy Drink– Round 1 of the six round Championship featuring some of the fastest modified cars in Scotland
  • Hot Hatch – A number of Hot Hatch sessions will run on the day, allowing you to take to the Knockhill track in your own car
  • Drift Demo – We’ll have several of the leading Scottish based British Drifting competitors on site, and on track, with their 2016 BDC Drift machines to preview our BDC event on 11/12 June
  • Clean and Scene – This event will also feature a Show Car event with upwards of 150 cars on display with a Show n Shine contest
  • Vintage Rally – from 9am to 11am the Knockhill venue will play its part in the Flying Scotsman Vintage Rally – which will see a whole host of pre-war Classic Sports Cars take to the track

What is it?– Super Lap Scotland is not racing, it is however a very intense time-trial challenge event, where competitors compete throughout the day to post the fastest overall time in each of the six classes. All classes are based on the power-to-weight ratio of each car and driver; which allows even the most modest of road cars the opportunity to compete against the super-tuned monsters out on track; with points awarded for qualifying positions and overall finishing positions in each class. Meaning that a class F competitor (least powerful) could easily take the overall Championship title from a Pro class competitor (most powerful) by scoring more points throughout the season, giving us an overall "King of Knockhill".

What will l see? – You’ll see highly-tuned machines (Pro class) tackle the twists and dips of the two Knockhill track configurations at blisteringly fast speeds, with each competitor looking to string together that ‘PERFECT’ lap and top the timesheets against all the competition. You’ll see a plethora of vehicles, all shapes and sizes, and you’ll see some mighty impressive engineering under the bonnet of popular marques like Subaru, Mitsubishi, Caterham, Vauxhall, Ford and many more.

Championship Rounds- This year’s SLS Championship will take place over six rounds, with all taking place at Knockhill; utilising both the International and Reverse tracks. At each event, we’ll also have additional features such as Hot Hatch Sessions, Show Cars and Drifting; please see each individual round for full details on what’s featuring at that event.

  • Sunday 17th April - Clockwise
  • Saturday 21st May – Reverse
  • Sunday 22nd May – Clockwise
  • Saturday 30th July – Reverse
  • Sunday 31st July – Clockwise
  • Sunday 18th Sept – Reverse

Who is it for? – The SLS Championship is for everyone - from individual racers/trackday enthusiasts looking for additional seat time, to men and women on the street looking to take the step on track, or, for those looking to make their first foray into timed competition run under MSA rules. Our seven class structure features an array of vehicles from 1000bhp brutes down to standard road cars, driven to and from the circuit. Basically, if you own a car and want to compete on track, we’ll have a class that you can enter.

- A separate award for road-going cars competing in standard trim, taxed, MOT’d and driven to (and hopefully from) the venue. Tuning companies, car clubs or groups of drivers may also compete for the Team Trophy, consisting of teams of between 2 & 4 drivers.

Rules and Permits – The Super Lap Scotland Championship powered By Rockstar Energy Drink is officially recognised by the MSA and runs to Super Sprint Championship guidelines.
