Meanwhile, venue bosses have been reflecting on a positive year – which saw capacity crowds return for events such as the British Touring Car Championship, British Superbikes, and its annual fireworks display last month, following COVID-19 restrictions – after their provisional calendar for 2023 was revealed.

It begins in February, with round one of the Scottish Tarmac Rally Championship, and Stuart Gray, director of events at Knockhill, said: “There’s so much uncertainty and turmoil in the economy, and challenges for people at home, that we’re being cautious about 2023, in the hope that things will be fully back to normal, if you like, for 2024, which conincidentally is our 50th anniversary year.

“This year’s been good but let’s tighten our belt and just hope that things are steady for ’23, and that ’24 will see us grow again if you like as a business.

“It’s totally understandable. We’ve already seen it with a couple of elements of the sporting side. Our Super Lap Scotland championship is the one championship that’s geared up towards track day people but, to step up from doing a track day, to super lap, is a big step, both in terms of what’s required by the individual – safety gear, all that kind of stuff – but people haven’t done that this year. They’ve just stuck to doing track days.”
