The first competitive event of the 2011 season will see the welcome return of rallying to Knockhill, Scotland’s National Motorsport Centre, with the Grant Construction Knockhill stages, organised by the Border Ecosse Car Club on Sunday 9th January.
Eight special stages covering 30 miles of action will feature in the unique event with 6 classes eligible from diminutive 1400cc cars, 4 wheel drive supercars, through to historics and classics.
Knockhill Events Director, Stuart Gray, said “We are delighted to be working with such a well known and respected club as the Border Ecosse Car Club. The Grant Construction stages will provide a real challenge for the competitor and spectacle for the spectators. With the length of stages and a 30 second gap between cars, there will be rally action everywhere you look. It’s been a while since we had rallying, and I know the rally fans love the single venue format as they can see all the cars, all the action, all the time.”
The first car is due off at 8.30am with action all the way through to 4pm. Adult admission is £8, concessions £4 and under 12’s free of charge.
