SEPTEMBER AT KNOCKHILL
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.
