Powered by mighty American V8 engines, the F1 cars are not only extremely fast but will also be awesomely noisy as they bellow and burn rubber around the testing, tricky, cambered oval race track.
The appropriately named “Bumper Trophy” with it’s 30 year history will be presented by the British Stock car drivers association at the Knockhill meeting whilst the 7th staging of the Millers Oils Knockhill Challenge Trophy will be contested on the Grand final event at Knockhill.
