Following on from the announcement that there will be a new TCR UK racing series for 2018; Knockhill are delighted to announce that the series will be venturing North on the weekend of 12/13 May.
Scottish fans will have already seen a number of TCR cars in full flight around the twists and dips of Knockhill, courtesy of Finlay Crocker and Andrew Morrison at our Scottish Motor Racing Club events. The TCR UK series will visit seven of the UK’s most iconic circuits and early interest in the series has prompted the promoters to announce that there will be no ceiling limit to the number of entries given the amount of interest so far.
