Event Information

Now into its 10th year, the Scottish Ford Live & Track Day and Show,  in association with the Central & East of Scotland RSOC Regional Groups - has grown year on year with 2020 acting as the biggest and best event yet. Up to 150 cars will take to the Knockhill track and around 400 plus Fords of all ages will be on show. We welcomed all Ford models, young and old, with participating Clubs/Owners travelling from as far afield as Durham and Oxford just to showcase their vehicles.

This year, we are improving further on the number of cars participating and expanding the diversity of vehicles on show. We’re also working hard behind the scenes to entice a few ‘Special Exhibits’ never seen in Scotland.

The main features of the event will include:

  • Hot Hatch track sessions – all makes and models of vehicle welcome
  • Two Ford only track driving sessions
  • 400 plus Fords on show
  • Competition Fords on display including ex BTCC cars
  • Tribute to the iconic rally Fords
  • Colin McRae Ford on display
  • M-Sport trade stand and display 
  • Clubs and private owners showcasing a huge mix of Ford models
  • Show ‘n’ Shine competitions with trophies 
  • Trade Stands promoting car care products and accessories

What is Scottish Ford Live?

Scottish Ford live is a car track day and show where we welcome hundreds of Ford models from up and down the country, and beyond, to celebrate the famous Ford brand – both on-track and off – all in association with the Central & East of Scotland RSOC regional groups.

What will l see at Scottish Ford Live?

It is two events in one! The main live activity of the day is, of course, the track day sessions where you will see individual car owners take to the famous twists and dips of the Knockhill track behind the wheel of a vast array of vehicles including Citroen, Renault, Subaru, BMW and Honda. We’ll also have dedicated Ford only sessions where you’ll see some of the most iconic Ford models being put through their paces on track including RS Escorts, Cosworths, Fiestas, Capris and much, much more.

Off-track is event number two! You will see upwards of 400 Ford cars on display, both from private individuals and Ford Owners’ Car Clubs – all with a single aim – to showcase their pride and joy to an enthusiastic audience. The man-hours alone spent on prepping these cars for the Show & Shine element of the show is staggering, and quite simply, it is hard to believe that some of the cars are more than 40 years old, such is the pristine condition of their presentation.

Why should l come to Scottish Ford Live?

It’s a great family day out for all Ford fans! If you ever had a Ford or own a Ford, this event is for you! It’s very much like a time warp as you stroll along the rows and rows of some of the most iconic cars the planet has ever seen, such as MK1 and II Escorts, RS2000s and Sierra Cosworth RS500s. As well as the old cars, there will be plenty of the newer Focus and Fiesta ST models lining the paddocks – in every conceivable colour you could imagine. It really is a Ford Owners’ paradise, and even if you are not a Ford fan, it's great to see how like-minded people and Car Clubs can come together to share in a common aim – to celebrate all things, Ford!
