SLS & Japanese Car Show (Sunday Only)

Saturday 21st - Sunday 22nd July, 2018

Straight from the Land of the Rising Sun, it's the annual Knockhill Japanese Car Show given our new 2018 twist by becoming one of our Super 6 family events. With a huge selection of some of the biggest names like Honda, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Mazda, Nissan and many more. Come and see your favourite Japanese machines in the flesh and on track. See some of Scotland's most popular and stunning modified and high performance machines competing to win prizes in a number of categories as one of our most popular events returns for 2018. 

As one of our Super 6 events on Sunday there will be a whole host of family friendly activities including Costume Characters, Action Simulators, Childrens Funfair Rides, Magic Shows, Stunt BMX Displays and much more!

The weekend also sees Super Lap Scotland kick up a gear as the season heats up. This will be the penultimate weekend for competitors to gain as many points as they can ahead of the season finale in September. Saturday's SLS action will take place on the anti-clockwise layout of the circuit while Sunday goes clockwise. In addition on Sunday we have another round of our brand new Chase Series race.

Over the weekend you'll also see competitors from the British Sprint Championship competing on both days with incredible single seater machines capable of running sub-50 second laps in an extreme test of driver skill and ability. Finally on Sunday we have an inaugural visit from the racers of the Scottish Legends Championship who will be competing at an SLS championship for the very first time.

The Japanese themed show and family funday takes place on Sunday only.

Event Information

The Super Lap Scotland powered by Rockstar Energy Drink blasts back onto the Knockhill track featuring some of the fastest and loudest cars you’ll see at Knockhill this year; as round 4 and 5 take place over Saturday and Sunday. Once again the two Knockhill configurations will be utilised over two-days of competition (Reverse Saturday and Clockwise on Sunday). See the features tab for more info, but here’s a quick run through of what’s happening on the day:-


  • Super Lap Scotland – Round 4 of the 2018 Series will take place on the anti-clockwise layout.
  • British Sprint – The British Sprint competitors will embark on another anti-clockwise time-trial event behind the wheel of a mix of stunningly fast single seat racers from F1 style machines to Formula Fords


  • Super Lap Scotland powered by Rockstar Energy Drink– Round 5 of the six round Championship featuring some of the fastest modified cars in Scotland, battling to put their hands on the 2018 title
  • Scottish Legends - Racing on track, with three individual championship races set to take place on the day.
  • British Sprint - The British Sprint competitors swap track configurations for Sunday's action as time-trial activity hits overdrive around Knockhill's famous twists and dips.
  • Family Fun Day - this event will host an array of additional entertainment for families - more details announced in due course.
  • Show Cars - A full on Japanese themed show car event that will attract some of the most popular Janapese built marques to Knockhill for a day of celebration and competition.
  • *NEW* Rockstar Energy Chase Series - The pinnacle of the day, an all-or-nothing race open to all classes and based on a time aggregate format to ensure an open playing field. 

What is it?– Super Lap Scotland is a very intense time-trial challenge event, where competitors compete throughout the day to post the fastest overall time in each of the seven classes. All classes are based on the power-to-weight ratio of each car and driver; which allows even the most modest of road cars the opportunity to compete against the super-tuned monsters out on track; with points awarded for qualifying positions and overall finishing positions in each class. Meaning that a class F competitor (least powerful) could easily take the overall Championship title from a Pro class competitor (most powerful) by scoring more points throughout the season, giving us an overall "King of Knockhill".

What will l see? – You’ll see highly-tuned machines (Pro class) tackle the twists and dips of the two Knockhill track configurations at blisteringly fast speeds, with each competitor looking to string together that ‘PERFECT’ lap and top the timesheets against all the competition. You’ll see a plethora of vehicles, all shapes and sizes, and you’ll see some mighty impressive engineering under the bonnet of popular marques like Subaru, Mitsubishi, Caterham, Vauxhall, Ford and many more.

Championship Rounds- This year’s SLS Championship will take place over six rounds, with all taking place at Knockhill; utilising both the International and Reverse tracks. At each event, we’ll also have additional features such as visiting race series, Car Trackday Sessions, Show Cars and Drag races; please see each individual round for full details on what’s featuring at that event.

  • Saturday 21st July (Reverse)
  • Sunday 22nd July
  • Sunday 9th September

Who is it for? – The SLS Championship is for everyone - from individual racers/trackday enthusiasts looking for additional seat time, to men and women on the street looking to take their first step on track, or, for those looking to make their first foray into timed competition run under MSA rules. Our seven classes feature an array of vehicles from 1000bhp brutes down to standard road cars, driven to and from the circuit. Basically, if you own a car and want to compete on track, we’ll have a class that you can enter.

- A separate award for road-going cars competing in standard trim, taxed, MOT’d and driven to (and hopefully from) the venue. Tuning companies, car clubs or groups of drivers may also compete for the Team Trophy, consisting of teams of between 2 & 4 drivers.

Rules and Permits – The Super Lap Scotland Championship powered By Rockstar Energy Drink is officially recognised by the MSA and runs to Super Sprint Championship guidelines.

Sponsors - Now in its fifth year, Super Lap Scotland Championship is brought to you in association with the Knockhill Motor Sports Club and Track Scotland, with title sponsorship coming from Rockstar Energy Drink. SLS also receives valuable support from RA Motorsport, Clark Motorsport, Samsonas, Turbosmart, AET Turbos, Track Formula, Whiteline, Nolathane, Turner Autosport, ECU Master, FMIC.EU Performance, Toyo Tires, Opie Olis, Ignite and Meddicks Blacksmiths.
