Formula Race Car

The ultimate way to experience the dramatic dips and climbs of our international race circuit is from the driving seat of a Formula Race Car. The driving position may feel new and slightly unfamiliar but boy... the view is amazing!

Get set for an adventure as you take control, quickly acclimatising to the cambers and vibrations you feel from the track and responsiveness of your race car. Each lap will become smoother and quicker as your confidence builds and you race off in search of the chequered flag.

The Track

Knockhill Racing Circuit is Scotland’s only approved Motorsport UK and FIA Internationally graded Circuit and is famous for hosting major televised motorsport events such as the British Touring Car and the British Superbike Championships.

A demanding road-circuit style track, 1.27 miles (2km) long, and 30 feet (10 m) wide, with a dramatic series of twists, turns, drops and climbs, varying by around 200 feet (60m) from highest to lowest point. Drive on the same International Circuit as driven by Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss, David Coulthard, Lewis Hamilton, Paul Di Resta and our very own BTCC Stars Gordon Shedden and Rory Butcher.

  • "I've done two Race Day Experiences here and both were fantastic. The instructors are amazing; I've never felt so scared yet safe in my life. Driving the race car with your butt 2 inches off the ground felt like doing light speed! Glad to see my driving has been improved too :)"

  • "Had an excellent racing car experience, staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent venue. Even got driver of the day. Highly recommend."

    Google Review - Ian Gibbins August, 2019
  • "Boyfriend still buzzing after today’s racing experience. Well organised and even very wet conditions couldn’t spoil the fun. Staff were amazing with daughter as it’s quite a long time to stand in wet conditions and she was so occupied watching and being involved (not in the driving obviously) that she never complained once. Only advice is to wrap up warm and with waterproofs if rainy as spray off cars passing leaves you pretty wet."
