SEPTEM­BER AT KNOCK­HILL

Motor Sport News - - What's On -

Septem­ber will be a his­toric month for mo­tor rac­ing fans at Knock­hill, Scot­land’s Na­tional Motorsport Cen­tre, as two ma­jor events will take equal billing at the Fife Track.

The Su­per Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship Fes­ti­val on Septem­ber 10/11 will make its first visit and the fi­nale of the fastest cham­pi­onship in Scot­land, Su­per Lap Scot­land pow­ered by Rock­star En­ergy Drink, takes to the track the fol­low­ing week­end. Both will en­thral the thou­sands of fans at Knock­hill.

The Su­per Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship event, sup­ported by Event Scot­land and Fife Coun­cil, has brought to life th­ese iconic thor­ough­breds and now runs a se­lect cham­pi­onship at showcase events. What makes this show­down even more spe­cial is that the STCC runs Tour­ing Cars from the 1980s and 1990s with some cars even from the 1970s mak­ing oc­ca­sional ap­pear­ances.

The iconic Vaux­hall Vec­tras, Audi A4s, Volvo S40s and oth­ers will be on the Su­per Tourer grid, which will also fea­ture some thun­der­ous Group A Sier­ras and two-litre BTCC cars from 1992 on­wards, all rac­ing for the David Les­lie Tro­phy.

Rac­ing hap­pens on both days on what is ex­pected to be a mem­o­rable week­end as it in­cludes the Ju­nior Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship, plus the reg­u­lar For­mula Ford driv­ers who’s grid will be boosted by vis­it­ing rac­ers who will be also chas­ing the cov­eted David Les­lie Tro­phy.

On Septem­ber 18, the fi­nale of the Su­per Lap Scot­land cham­pi­onship pow­ered by Rock­star En­ergy Drink is ex­pected to at­tract the sec­ond big­gest car crowd of the year as around 70 SLS cars chase for the SLS ti­tle.

Off track there will be hun­dreds of show cars and en­ter­tain­ment. In­for­ma­tion and tick­ets for both events can be pur­chased on line at www.knock­hill.com.
