FIREWORKS night went off with a bang at Knockhill Racing Circuit as they hosted their "best one yet" on Saturday.

A sold-out crowd of more than 7,000 people, including two lucky Press readers, who won tickets as part of a competition run in conjunction with the venue, headed to the track for its annual bonfire and fireworks night.

The final event in the 2022 calendar, it brought Knockhill's year to a close in stunning style, with the highlight being the spectacular fireworks display.

Stuart Gray, director of events at the circuit, said: "It was amazing, the best one yet. The feedback has been exceptional, the content we had was bigger, better, faster and louder, and the fireworks were tremendous.

"It has become a real landmark event, and is now our third-largest event of the year (after the Bennetts British Superbikes and Kwik Fit Touring Car Championship).

"Outwith a few council-run fireworks displays, it must be one of the biggest in the country.

"We've had a debrief. It's important that we keep things fresh and different, and the way we do the fireworks next year will be different. From our point of view, as event organisers, we want to continue to improve but I think it hit the mark in so many ways."

As well as the showcase fireworks display, the crowds were treated to a number of activities on and off the track, including drifting, mini moto demonstrations, racing, which featured touring car driver Dexter Patterson, appearances from fellow drivers Rory Butcher, Gordon Shedden and Aiden Moffat, a truck show and a kids' zone.

Next year's event has already been pencilled in for Saturday, November 4, and Knockhill have revealed its calendar of events for 2023.

The Bennetts British Superbike Championship and the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship have been confirmed already to return over the weekends of June 16-18, and August 12-13, respectively.
