There is a bumper turn out of over 150 riders this weekend as KMSC and Scottish Championship bike racing makes a welcome return to Knockhill for the start of the 2018 racing season.
The track was resurfaced for 2018, its third resurface since Knockhill was established in 1974, and if the car racing was anything to go by last weekend and if conditions are favourable, we could be in for a whole raft of new lap records. Whatever happens, the riders always provide some of the best club racing in the UK, fighting fairing to fairing for the Club and Scottish Championship honours. The young riders seem to be getting younger and younger and we are so pleased to see Scottish talent being recognised nationally and internationally with the four Scots in the British Talent squad, something that the Club, the Circuit and our President Niall Mackenzie are passionate about.
Speaking of Club President Niall Mackenzie, he can’t be with us this weekend however, he sends this message on:
“There has been an increase in participation at early road race meetings south of the border so I’m delighted to see we also have a strong number of entries across the classes for the first KMSC meeting of 2018. I believe our continued success is having the right classes to accommodate the majority of Scottish riders plus excellent race day organisation. I’m pleased to report all of our sponsors have stayed on board with some even increasing their support, which of course benefits everyone all round”.
Finally, a big thank you to all the KMSC sponsors for 2018, Bitwise, Motorrad Central Scotland, Scotwaste, Cupar Motorcycles, Shirlaws Motorcycles, Skinner Motorcycles and John Young Signs
