Countless times I’ve looked on Knockhill’s website and wondered (often out loud) about driving the short distance from Edinburgh to check out some of the events there. And so finally, me and my Dad made the trip up there (a whole 25 minutes!) to watch the second day of arguably the biggest weekend on the calendar - the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
The day included support from the Porsche Carrera Cup as well as SMRC and the Ginetta GT series. Our luck was in with the weather as the sun shined all day long - we’ve somehow managed to come home with sunburn. Not what you expect early September in Scotland!
The racing was fantastic and lived up to all the hype surrounding BTCC; Knockhill is a short and aggressive circuit which seems to lend itself well to the touring car style. We witnessed numerous shunts, dodgy overtake manouvres, spinoffs, and so on - the sort of thing you’d almost never get to see at a level like Formula One. All in all it was a fantastic day out, hopefully the photos I captured reflect that.
