Whenever the BTCC rolls into Knockhill, it brings controversy, rivalry and flat out hammer-and-tongs racing that enthrals, excites and entertains in equal measure, and this year’s event promises more of the same. Household names such as Plato, Turkington, Neal, Butcher, Sutton and Moffat will do battle in their highly charged racing saloon cars from Honda, BMW, Ford, Subaru, Audi, Mercedes and other.
A superb support line-up featuring Renault Clio, Ginetta and British F4 Championship racing, will accompany three thrilling BTCC races. 2019 will also herald the return of the highly competitive Renault UK Clio Cup Championship that will add yet more excitement to a jam-packed programme of racing.

Touch the Track – For the fourth year running, we’ll be opening the gates to the track after the final race on Sunday 14th September to do an American style touch-the-track event. Spectators can flood onto the track and walk the famous twists and dips of Knockhill to view the circuit from a driver’s perspective – a brilliant way to finish off your BTCC weekend!
Extended Opening Hours – A number of food courts/vans/outlets will also be staying open for longer. So instead of rushing off and being caught in the exit process, sit back, enjoy some refreshments and reflect on all of the day’s highlights, whilst listening to some music via our radio station broadcasting on 87.7FM .
Arrive and Drive Karting – Our Karting Centre will also be open to 6 pm, allowing adults and kids to participate in a spot of racing of their very own in our new fleet of Sodi kids and adult karts. Places can be booked throughout the day from £10 for 10-minute sessions. Simply call into the Kart Centre on the day for timings and availability.
