We want to protect our future, the future of our customers and our local community. We have over the years taken a very proactive approach to being sustainable.
We have always considered our beautiful countryside and developed the venue with a focus on the natural landscape.
In 2022 our McRae Rally Challenge event partnered with Carbon Positive Motorsport to 100% offset the carbon footprint of all of the competitors taking part in the event - offsetting 15000kg CO2e. The offset has contributed 15 Pending Issuance Units to the Loch Ness native woodland restoration project run by Highland Carbon.
In 2022, Motorsport UK commissioned a sustainability and environmental audit of selected motorsport venues in the UK with a scoring and feedback report given. Knockhill came out as one of the market leaders with the management team committing to make further improvements in environmental policies and activities.
Our waste tyres are 100% recycled. Tyres are shredded, steel is removed and recycled, and the rubber is chipped or crumbed and repurposed for a variety of end uses.
In 2012, the Scottish Government launched their roll-out of 250 Scottish Government funded car charging points at Knockhill with the then Transport Minister Keith Brown. Knockhill became one of the first businesses in the country to have one installed.
In May 2021, William, the Duke of Cambridge (now Prince of Wales) visited and drove the Extreme E fully electric rally car at a Press event promoting electic rallying and hygrogen power generation.
In 2018, Knockhill were finalists in the Scottish Environmental Business Awards in both the Innovation and Active Travel catagories with our collaboration in the development of the worlds first electric rally car - a Renault Zoe.
