The Track

Knockhill Racing Circuit is Scotland’s only approved Motorsport UK and FIA Internationally graded Circuit and is famous for hosting major televised motorsport events such as the British Touring Car and the British Superbike Championships.

A demanding road-circuit style track, 1.27 miles (2km) long, and 30 feet (10 m) wide, with a dramatic series of twists, turns, drops and climbs, varying by around 200 feet (60m) from highest to lowest point. Drive on the same International Circuit as driven by Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss, David Coulthard, Lewis Hamilton, Paul Di Resta and our very own BTCC Stars Gordon Shedden and Rory Butcher.

  • "I loved my visit and I'm already dropping huge hints to friends and family that this is the only present I ever need to be bought again."

  • "Had a very enjoyable day at Knockhill for the extended race car experience yesterday. Even though the brain was almost biblical at times the formula race car was amazing. Can't wait to do it again! The Honda Type R was good fun also and I found my instructor very helpful."

  • "My wife booked this for me, the staff and instructors were first class. After the safety briefing we went down to get the safety gear and the cars, I was a bit nervous, then excited and at the end I knew that that was one of the best adrenaline rushes I've had in a long time. Big thanks to all the staff."

    William W October, 2018
