The Classic Sports Car Club makes its first ever visit to Knockhill this weekend (Sat 3rd & Sun 4th July) – with many drivers also making their Knockhill debuts. So, the action should be quite something as these race cars from the 60s to 80s learn the intricacies of both the Knockhill tracks.
Interestingly, in a slight deviation from the norm, the CSCC have opted to run the clockwise track on Saturday and the anti-clockwise track on Sunday. So, two very different challenges await the drivers over the course of the weekend, and, if one track wasn’t hard enough to master in one weekend, we’d imagine learning two tracks from a standing start over race weekend will be one mighty challenge.
However, challenge… is exactly what the Classic Sports Car Club and its members are after and one… that all of the drivers are looking forward to. The racing itself will feature mixed grids with various Championship classes amalgamating on circuit in 30-minute races which will also feature driver pit stops and car changes. It should add a nice twist to the racing with strategy coming to the fore as well as outright racing. There will also be a wide variety of cars on show, with TVRs, Lotus’, Alfa Romeos, MG Midgets and Austins to name but a few.
Tickets for the event can be booked online via the Knockhill website. All tickets will be emailed instantly. Simply arrive at the gate and have these scanned to gain entry. As with the other events we are running just now, there are some restrictions that spectators should be aware of before you book a ticket. There will be no access to the race paddock this weekend, due to Motorsport UK permit regulations and all spectator catering will be supplied via a mobile unit on the main straight next to the Karting Centre.
However, you are more than welcome to bring your own food, then park trackside to enjoy a picnic and the racing. Spectator viewing will be from the start of Duffus Dip, all the way round the outside of the track to the tiered banking immediately behind the Hairpin. Spectators can also access the inside of the track over the Beatson’s Bridge for an alternative vantage point.

Both days will kick off with qualifying action in the morning and once the grids are set, we’ll be racing all the way through to approximately 5.30pm each day. The races themselves will commence at approximately 12.45pm each day.
We look forward to hosting these new classes and drivers this weekend – with a splattering of local talent spread throughout the entry as well, it should all add up to a fabulous weekend of classic racing at Knockhill.
Ticket prices are as follows:
Adult £15, Concession £10 and Family £40 (that’s 2 adults and two conc. 12-16yrs). All kids under the age of 12 go free to all Knockhill events in 2021.
