Track of The Month – August 2017

Knockhill, Scotland

This August, we’re heading north of the border, with our Track of The Month being Knockhill in Scotland. Situated in Fife, Knockhill is a short 1.27 mile circuit and is Scotland’s only permanent racing facility.

Since it’s inception in 1973, Knockhill has always been popular, and is reknowned on the British Touring Car calendar for the enthusiasm of its fans in attendance.

The circuit provides a stern test for drivers, requiring commitment and precision from drivers to negotiate Knockhill’s many undulations and blind corners. Combine this with the tracks iconic high kerbs, which offer some 2 wheel opportunities and one thing is for sure; you can expect a wild ride around Knockhill this month!

Have a look at last year’s pole lap from the BTCC from Jason Plato.

We hope you enjoy this fantastic circuit and the cars we have chosen!
