Over 40 years as Scotland’s National Motorsport Centre and host to the UK’s top televised motorsport car and bike events. Knockhill is situated just 30 mins from Edinburgh, 40 miles from Glasgow and 2 hours from Aberdeen. Knockhill is a truly versatile venue and the perfect choice for all events including Corporate Days, Team Building, Karting, Trackdays and exciting Driving Experiences. In the early 70’s local farmer Tom Kinnaird had a vision to change the use of his sheep farm to something much more exciting! In 1974 the first motorcycle race took place, since then a huge amount of racing stars and spectators have passed through the gates. Some of the memories from the decades . Tom Kinnaird’s farm, in the lee of the Knock Hill boasted a narrow farm service track and a disused railway line. His vision was to link these resources to create a demanding road-circuit style track, 1.3 miles (2km) long, and 30 feet (10 m) wide, with a unique series of twists, turns, drops and climbs, varying by around 200 feet (60m) from highest to lowest point. In the autumn of 1974, the inaugural Motorcycle Race meeting was held at Knockhill Racing Circuit and Scotland’s National Centre for Motor Sport was born! Scotland’s only accredited FIA and MSA approved venue! With extensive and ongoing investment in our facilities we are able to provide, new and exciting, experiences and racing events that are rivalled by no other. Our famous 1.27 mile long circuit, hillside rally stage, 4x4 off road track, 500m outdoor karting circuit, skid pan, restaurants and conferencing facilities form our unique venue. One of our finest assets and always a hot topic with our customers! We strive to provide the best possible experience and our skilled team play an important part in delivering these. Everyone is friendly, approachable, correctly qualified and passionate about their role at Knockhill; from our ground staff, instructors, sales team and directors. We all look forward to welcoming you to Knockhill.
