Knockhill Racing Circuit is a motor racing circuit in Fife, Scotland, opened in September 1974. It is Scotland's national motorsport centre. The circuit is located in the countryside about 6mi north of Dunfermline and was created by joining service roads to a nearby disused mineral railway, closed in 1951, which served Lethans Colliery.The CircuitThe circuit is 10 metres wide and has two layouts, the 1.3 miles International layout and the 1 mile National layout.A major spectator vantage point is on the final corner, Taylor's, a hairpin situated a short distance before the start/finish line on the uphill pit straight. The circuit then levels out and passes under the pedestrian bridge before a short braking zone preceding the first of the nine corners, Duffus Dip.Between 1974 and 1983 the circuit had several different owners which helped to steadily develop the circuit's facilities and attractions. Since the 1980s, Knockhill has been developed to a point where it is able to host rounds of most of the major British car and motorbike championships.Today Knockhill offers a range of motorsport facilities in addition to the original circuit, including an offroad track, rally stage and a go-kart track. The circuit hosts many different events throughout the year, including the British Superbike Championship, touring cars, stock cars and various trackdays for car and bike enthusiasts.

  • A small but very nice circuit which I love and have been to a lot. It is 1000 feet up a Scottish mountain and has weather to match, so going there without good outdoor clothing is rash. There are a lot of viewing points, and traffic management at the biggest events is usually very good. Hard to get to without a car or motorcycle. Not much covered viewing. Food on site is reasonable and commentary is usually good.
  • Great circuit for spectator viewing. Good weather helps make it a more enjoyable experience. Lots of improvements to the viewing areas recently.
  • Fantastic place to get away with family or friends. Professional service. I recommend racing.
  • Went to The Superbikes & it was brilliant...bikes , sounds,smells the whole atmosphere is outstanding....walking round much more pleasant also since the use of secondhand AstroTurf...plus seating from planks of wood. Catering & stalls were plenty...
  • Track days are fun and the staff are really helpful at getting a good run at it. Facilities are good for minor races and usually have a good amount extra for bigger national events.
