Thread: Knockhill Trackday

  1. #1

    Default Knockhill Trackday

    Can anyone recommend decent trackdays at Knockhill for me to take my R53 to? The BMW club aren't doing one this year, and I don't want to go out in one that's full of folk that think they're Verstappen

    My cousin used to do a lot of track days in his nova and lotus they had friends in the subaru owners club. That was always a good day out and the owners wanted to look after their cars. So no one was a maniac

    Dreadnought Garage do track nights at Knockhill. Done a couple with them and always well behaved people. Check their FB page or their own website for details. They normally run 3 or 4 a year

    Thanks guys. Anyone done the standard or hot hatch days at Knockhill? Not that keen on the idea of a 50 car open pitlane, last time I was there there was only 9 of us!

    That's exactly my concern. Although last time I did a trackday, 3 laps into the wet 'familiarisation session', some muppet in his 458 must have had the TC off and stacked it halfway along Railway Straight, causing approx £30k of damage...

    I'm sure I read on facebook last night that Knockhill have cancelled the first tracknight due to lack of numbers Like Craig says ^^^ Dreadnought track nights are all well behaved affairs

    Cheers guys. Had a look at Dreadnought's FB and didn't see much about trackdays - how much notice do they give?
