    Have a look at their website Gordon, looked at it a couple of days and their track nights are listed for the whole year... they normally put the dates up as soon as they have them available and they book up quick ...

    I can also recommend the Dreadnought track nights. That was my intro to track driving and they are very well run with a full driver briefing before the fun starts. The staff at knockhill Marshall the event professionally and will black flag anybody not sticking to the rules.
    I can also recommend Dreadnought garage in callander as an excellent place to get any work done, particularly if you want suspension set up or wheel alignment done. When I was competing in hillclimb with my mx5 many of our class went there to get their cars set up by Paul. Really nice family owned business and Paul races in the MG series so they know what they are doing! The garage is always full of interesting sports cars.
    Despite all that they are very happy to talk you through the effect any changes should have on the car or explain how stuff works, very enlightening for a mechanical dunce like me!
    To top it off their costs are very reasonable. Think it cost me £50 the last time I had a 4 wheel alignment done on my mx5.

    Another option for track time is at East Ayrshire Car Club's muirkirk circuit. Membership of the club is only £20 per year and they run track nights once a month (£10) and track days once a month (£35).

    The circuit is tight but only 1 car on track at a time so you won't get hit by anybody else!
