To mark his 40 year connection with Knockhill, the management team have named the main drive into Knockhill from the A823 “Mackenzie Drive” with an unveiling ceremony yesterday in the presence of Niall, his son Taylor, Circuit Owner Jillian Shedden and Director of Events Stuart Gray.

Niall said he was “Shocked, surprised, speechless, honoured and proud! The very existence of Knockhill paved the way for my fantastic life, never mind the incredible fun and memories over the past 40 years with you guys. The family is blown away and chuffed to bits with ‘Mackenzie Drive’ so this really is the icing on the cake”.

Jillian Shedden said to Niall “It’s our pleasure, a small token to thank you for all you have done for us and to mark the amazing achievements of all of the Mackenzie family”
