Hot Hatch Trackday & Scottish Car Scene - Sunmer Hot Hatch

Showcar Registration

We're opening our gates to some of Britain’s most loved hot hatches, based loosely on the list compiled by Autocar magazine of the top 30 hot hatches. On the day we’ll be presenting our very own Scottish Top 10 hot hatches and see if you agree with our decisions. We’re looking for hot hatches of all eras from this event, whether you have an old school Vauxhall Nova or a jaw-dropping Ford Fiesta ST, we want to celebrate these little pocket rockets with their own special show.

Event Information

What if I fancy having a go on track?

Great, we are always open to newcomers, and you’ll receive a full safety briefing before heading out on track. There are also a number of rules and flag signals you’ll need to be aware of, but we’ll give you this information on the day. Trackday sessions can be booked via our Trackday Website ( or you can simply turn up on the day and ask to head on out (subject to availability – it’s always wiser to pre-book).
