    Survivor guide: Knockhill

    Situated approximately six miles to the north of Dunfermline, Knockhill Racing Circuit in Fife is the national motor sport centre of Scotland.

    Experiences

    In addition to hosting an array of national, club level and international bike and car race events, Knockhill circuit offers members of the public an array of adrenaline-pumping experiences. There are nine racing, five rallying and six super car experiences, as well as three teenager’s, three ‘Classics’ and two four-by-four skid experiences to choose from. Other options offered include a bike experience and five driving tuition sessions. These experiences provide drivers with the opportunity to get on the track in modern or classic racing cars, rally cars and super cars like the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Ferrari 360, Lotus Exige or the classic E-Type Jaguar, for instance. Some experiences also offer the chance to participate in several different disciplines, including karting.

    Track days and karting

    On track days, drivers can take their own cars or bikes onto Knockhill’s track or drive some of the vehicles mentioned above. Karting experiences include kids and single or group adult sessions. The track also organises karting parties for kids’ birthdays and other special occasions.

    Staying safe

    Preventing karting, car and motorcycling accidents is obviously of utmost importance. Track owners and staff do their best to prevent personal injuries to visitors, but participants must also take the necessary steps to prevent causing vehicle collisions and karting accidents. This includes:

    • Heeding information and instructions provided at safety briefings
    • Obeying track rules
    • Not over-estimating their own or their vehicles’ capabilities
    • Taking only light meals before going onto the track to prevent sleepiness
    • Drinking plenty of non-alcoholic, caffeine-free liquids to ensure they remain adequately hydrated
    • Recognising their limits and taking breaks whenever tiredness creeps in

    When participating in motorcycling or car driving experiences, it is also vital to prevent causing accidents on the road by mistaking public roads for the track. In other words, drivers must remember to re-adjust speed and driving style to normal driving conditions on the way home. Failure to do this could all too easily result in a road traffic accident with serious, potentially fatal consequences.
