The Scottish SpeedFair and Classic Festival returns to Knockhill for the sixth time with 250 show cars from yesteryear, and a Classic competition schedule, featuring Racing, Rally, and Autotest.

In addition the Fife circuit will host E-Type Jaguar 50-year Celebrations, the Starduster Too aerobatic display, the Aston Martin Owners' Gathering and the inaugural running of the David Leslie Trophy for Formula Ford competitors.

Topping the bill at Knockhill will be the Scottish Classic Sports and Saloon races. Classic Racing in Scotland is undergoing a revival, with bumper entries for the 2011 Classic Championship organised by the Scottish Motor Racing Club.

Classic SpeedFair Racing

There'll be four classic races and a 2-driver 30 lap classic endurance race at SpeedFair. More than fifty competitors will take to the Knockhill tarmac in models ranging from a Porsche 911 to an immaculate Mk 1 Ford Escort.

The event will draw cars from the 1920s through to the 1970s, including a 1950 Bentley Brooklands.

Times

Track action starts at 10am on Sunday 31st July with adult admission priced at £15, concessions are £8 and kids under 12 go free.
