We’re back in action this weekend with Rounds 3 & 4 of our 2021 Super Lap Scotland Championship and supporting race series. It was great to finally kick off the season back in June and we’ve been flat out at Knockhill ever since. Round one saw some terrific performances across the classes with Class victories going to Fiona Kindness (Class G x 2), Adam Morrison and Michael Imrie split the spoils with a win apiece in Class F, Martin Brown secured a brace in Class E, Marc Dawson took a double victory in Class D, Michael Osborne Jnr. stole the show in Class C with a win at Round 1 and Round 2, whilst Adam Kindness bagged a brace in Class B, and Craig Nicol scored points in Class A (Sat only). In the Pro Class, Eric Holmes took the spoils on Saturday and Nev Wood took his first ever victory in class on the Sunday. Pro X was dominated by Andy Forrest on Saturday before mechanical woes ended his weekend.
The good news though, is that Andy will be back this Sunday with his sensationally fast Westfield… but he won’t be alone in Pro X. Simon Bainbridge who made a guest appearance back in 2020 is back… mainly to compete in the British Sprint Championship – however he will also pilot his Crono V8 machine in a head-to-head with Forrest in Pro X. On Simon’s last visit, he clocked a 52.6s lap in pretty sketchy conditions – so with hopefully a dry track and the addition of slick tyres and the additional warm up laps – Pro X this weekend could see some fireworks.
In fact, check out all the highlights from Round 2 in our 20min summary programme – composed by the guys over at BeckSport Media.
As usual this season, with the return of SLS this weekend, that also heralds the return of ModSports and Legends Championship Racing. The Legends final from the last meeting was superb – a three-way battle at the front of the field that was eventually won by Ben Mason – there was lots of aggressive driving on show – in very tricky conditions… but it was superb to watch. Hopefully, we’ll all be treated to some more entertainment just like it this weekend (highlights of that race are immediately below).
In the ModSports, it was Ron Cumming in his Nemesis Kit Car who had the measure of most drivers, taking on-the-road victories in three of the four ModSport races at Rounds 1 and 2. Paul Brydon secured the final race victory of the weekend and there were also multiple class victories for various drivers. Again, footage from the first ModSports race of the day at Round 2 can be watched below.
That brings us onto the visiting series this weekend – we have two Championships making their way North to Knockhill this weekend. The British Sprint Championship and the Westfield Sprint Championship. Both have been regulars at Knockhill over the past few years and bring new machines and drivers to Knockhill and always provide plenty of entertainment over the course of the weekend. Inevitably, the British Sprint Championship will be the most notable for race fans – the series is jam-packed with F1-esque single seat race cars – capable of lapping the Knockhill track in the 40 second bracket. The sound, smell and sight of these cars being driven flat out will be a great sight for race fans starved of super-fast action on track due to the pandemic.
We are still operating under Covid-19 restrictions this weekend, therefore there will be no access to the paddock for race fans. However, spectating facilities will be from the first corner, all the way round to the banking behind the Hairpin, and of course the centre of the track, over the bridge will also be open to fans. Mobile catering units will be on-site to cater for any fans wishing to purchase food and drink on the days they are attending. We are also still operating under the 1000 spectator number, however, tickets are still available should you wish to attend.
Simply, head online and pre-book your ticket via the Knockhill website. Tickets will be sent instantly to your email address and these tickets will then be scanned at the gate on arrival – you can either print them out or simply show the barcodes on your phone when being scanned.
Our weekend programme is available online and can also be accessed via the Knockhill website – see the Documents and Downloads section.
Look forward to seeing you at Knockhill this weekend for another fun fuelled motorsport weekend.
