An incredible entry of 156 bike racers has been received by the Knockhill Motor Sports Club ahead of round one of their 2019 bike racing this weekend. The increase is primarily down to the significant increase in the CB500 class, often the class of choice of newcomers as its a budget class, with a record 34 entered.
Knockhill are pleased to be supporting Blood Bikers Scotland this year. They provide an amazing voluntary service that supports the NHS and medical scene in Scotland and you will see them at a number of Knockhill events this summer.

Radio Forth presenters Boogie and Arlene’s latest driving challenge was at Knockhill to see who could drive the furthest on £3 of petrol or £3 worth of electric charge.
In 2017, 70% of road fatalities in Scotland occurred on country roads. To put this into perspective, that is 102 deaths in one year alone. The most common cause of these fatalities is from people driving too fast for the road conditions.
