ALL roads led to Knockhill Racing Circuit at the weekend as an eagerly-anticipated calendar for 2022 moved out of the paddock and onto the starting grid.

After two years of uncertainties and disruption due to COVID-19, officials at Scotland's national motorsport centre are looking forward to what they hope will be an action-packed and successful year.

The first action on the track took place on Sunday with a full day of Scottish Motor Racing Club (SMRC) action, which was the starting point for a host of events throughout the year for all the family, which will continue this weekend with the venue's Easter Hot Hatch Track Day and Show Car event.

Taking place on Sunday, April 17, from 9am, it is open to all types of road and track cars with drivers who have a full, current driving licence, while entertainment will be provided by magician Cameron Young; as well as egg-rolling, drifting action and lots more.

One of the three biggest events Knockhill will host takes place from June 17-19, when the Bennetts British Superbike Championship rolls into West Fife, which is followed on July 2-3 by the McRae Rally Challenge, and the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) on July 30-31.

The year will conclude with Knockhill's annual, spectacular fireworks event on November 5 and Stuart Gray, Knockhill's director of events, is confident of a good year – especially as they've secured what he described as "bonus" events recently.

"The really good thing is that, as a result, or consequence of where we're at, a couple of championships that would otherwise go to Europe to race, partly because of COVID and the uncertainty of travel and what not, have decided to come north instead of going south to Europe," he said.

"We've got the Caterham Championship in September. They view Knockhill as an away round, as in going to Belgium or Zandvoort in Holland, but because of all the uncertainties, they've decided to come back here for a consecutive year. We would never have got that otherwise so, ironically, that's a bonus event we wouldn't otherwise have got.

"Pre-season testing has been pretty strong for the same reason; touring car teams, Formula Four and Ginetta teams have come north for testing, and have been in March, when they would normally go to Spain."

There is plenty for race fans and families alike to enjoy at Knockhill and, for the Easter Hot Hatch Track Day and Show Car event, we have two sets of family tickets to give away, thanks to Knockhill Racing Circuit.
