KNOCKHILL Racing Circuit have announced the continuation of a partnership that they hope will help offset carbon emissions within one of its car racing championships.

The West Fife venue, located north of Dunfermline, and the Knockhill Motor Sports Club (KMSC) have joined forces with Carbon Positive Motorsport, with the join aim to 200 per cent offset KMSC racing by 2026.

As part of the phased initiative, beginning with this year's Scottish Legends Championship, Knockhill will underwrite the entire legends grid every race weekend with a contribution to Carbon Positive Motorsport, to which drivers themselves can make a voluntary contribution of either £5 or £10 to offset their racing and travel mileage.

Scotland's national motorsport entre will ensure that the whole grid's racing mileage is offset, and will be expanded to the other championships in subsequent seasons.

Stuart Gray, Knockhill director of events, and KMSC chairman, said: "We are delighted to continue our partnership with Carbon Positive Motorsport, something that started in 2022.

"With the goal of all our car racing being offset by 2026, it is just one part of a major sustainability programme for the circuit as a whole."

Knockhill, which this year is celebrating its 50th anniversary, are entering a third year of working with Carbon Positive Motorsport as part of a long-term plan to mitigate their championship events.

Carbon Positive Motorsport added that "100 per cent of the competitors estimated carbon footprint is immediately offset using certified carbon reduction units created using reforestation", and that the balance of offsetting will be enabled in the future using the "world class" Loch Ness Project, which will "bring additional environmental benefits locally in Scotland such as improved biodiversity."

Knockhill's next event, scheduled for April 14, is the hot hatch family fun day and show car event, and for details and tickets, visit
