In the early 70’s local farmer Tom Kinnaird had a vision to change the use of his sheep farm to something much more exciting! In 1974 the first motorcycle race took place, since then a huge amount of racing stars and spectators have passed through the gates.
Tom Kinnaird’s farm, in the lee of the Knock Hill boasted a narrow farm service track and a disused railway line. His vision was to link these resources to create a demanding road-circuit style track, 1.3 miles (2km) long, and 30 feet (10 m) wide, with a unique series of twists, turns, drops and climbs, varying by around 200 feet (60m) from highest to lowest point.
In the autumn of 1974, the inaugural Motorcycle Race meeting was held at Knockhill Racing Circuit and Scotland’s National Centre for Motor Sport was born!
