• KMSC Lightweights sponsored by AutoPerfekt - The Lightweight class is actually made up of several different classes – each competing for their own Championships that include – Mini Twin and Formula 400. Due to the differences and variety of bikes on show, there is always some really exciting racing, with passing moves galore throughout the field.
• KMSC Pre-Injection 600 - Like the Formula 600 machines, the Pre-Injection 600s also boast up to 600cc but are generally older spec machines. This class provides plenty of thrilling racing and offers a relatively cheap route into the world of bike racing. This class sees newcomers entering the fold each and every season and often sees its elite competitors progress onto the Clubman, Formula 600 or Superbike categories.
• KMSC Formula 300s sponsored by Motorrad Central - This is the class most connected with young racers. It’s for 300s, production based motorcycles and is often the starting point for youngsters entering the sport. You’ll see young men and woman, as young as 12 years old, compete against each other at incredibly close quarters. This class is all about learning the track, improving times and improving race craft – yet still, maintains a real competitive edge to the racing.
• KMSC CB500 sponsored by BWR Recycling - This class has went under a transformation in the past few years. Re-introduced a few years back, this class has gone from strength to strength. We now regularly see over-subscribed grids with competitors needing to pre-qualify just to make the grid. The parity of the bikes performance allows for great, close racing with championship battles regularly going down to the wire.
Marin Scottish Sidecars - These amazing racing machines with a rider and passenger continue their chase for Scottish and KMSC honours before their showcase event in September, the Jock Taylor Memorial Race Meeting.
