SMRC Scottish Car Racing

Sunday 1st September, 2019

Scottish Championship Car Racing organised by the SMRC, has a superb range of racing classes, a super-slick racing format with around 16 races to entertain you during an action-packed afternoon. This time around the SMRC racers will tackle the Reverse Circuit at Knockhill - only the third time the SMRC competitors have sampled this layout at Knockhill. Valuable Championship points will be up-for-grabs as the leading racers jostle for the top of the Championship standings during the penultimate round of the season. Traditionally, this is when championship challenges are made and expect to see the best racers in each class battle hard at the front of the grid for those all-important race wins.
