The second of five Scottish Championship Car Racing meetings will take place at Knockhill on Sunday 18th July with a 12 noon event start time. A revised timetable of racing classes will feature five of the SMRC’s most popular series race head-to-head on Sunday afternoon with six hours of action in store.
After their first event of the year back in June which saw the visiting Avon Tyres National Formula Ford championship join the spectacle to provide some fantastic racing, the SMRC racers are back for another afternoon of fun and entertainment on the Knockhill track. Gates open at 11am and the action on track will start with qualifying for each of the main racing classes from 12 noon.
Once the grids have been set, we’ll be into a frenetic race programme which will see 11 races completed over the course of the afternoon. Sit back at your favourite spot at Knockhill and watch as the 2021 SMRC racers fight tooth and nail for those podiums and race wins. It’s a thrilling day out at Knockhill for all the family as the action comes thick and fast on Knockhill’s 1.27 mile layout.
SMRC race days have always been great value for money with plenty of variety on circuit. As well as enjoying all the trills of qualifying, fans won’t have too long to wait for the action to kick-off on track. We’ll still manage to amass a great deal of fast-paced frenetic action into the newly revised 6 hour schedule.
Fans will still be able to watch the competing series from various locations around the track, and with compact grids the action should be as spectacular as ever as you take in the sights and sounds from Scotland’s National Motorsport Centre
• Scottish Formula Ford Championship – Formula Fords have run in Scotland for over 50 years and is the premier single seater racing class in Scotland. These 1600cc race cars have championships across the world and provides the closest open wheeled racing in the country.
• Scottish Mini Cooper Cup – The Mini Coopers have provided the closest saloon car racing for over a decade as these identical evenly matched cars race wheel to wheel. Many drivers have successfully cut their teeth in this series and have gone on to race nationally.
• Scottish Fiesta ST Championship - A mainstay of the Scottish Motor Racing Club line up for more than 20 years, initially with XR2 race cars which spawned the likes of Ian Forrest, Rory Butcher and triple BTCC Champion Gordon Shedden. The series now consists of the Fiesta ST model powered by a 2 litre Duratec engine and offers a superb platform for newcomers and veterans alike to enjoy some healthy competition.
• The Scottish Classic Sports and Saloons Championship - Classic racing is very popular nowadays and the Classic Sports and Saloon competitors always put on a great show - whilst some of the machinery on show will take you back to the good old days... the racing is very much full-on and extremely competitive and often features classics from Porsche, MG, Lotus, Morgan and others.
• The Scottish C1 Cup - City car racing up and down the country is on the upsurge and the SMRC was one of the first clubs to introduce an introductory and cost-effective class for racers looking for a financially viable route into motorsport - the C1 Cup offers this and the racing is great fun to watch too.
