Sunday 3rd July 2011

Knockhill Racing Circuit,
by Dunfermline,
KY12 9TF

The first race starts at 09:30, see timetable.

NOTE: The entry Fee is only £6 instead of the normal £12.

This is only for MX-5 drivers & passengers parked in the MX-5 enclosure.
Entry to the MX-5 enclosure for our cars is by the main entrance.


For the first time ever, Knockhill will be hosting a round of the Mazda Racing Championships with around 100 racing Mazda MX-5s taking to the track. This is why the July SMRC race meeting has been dubbed "MAZDA MANIA". We are anticipating 3 full grids of Mk1 & Mk3 MX-5s alongside a strong MX-5 Owners Club presence, club stands and a lunchtime MX-5 cavalcade round the track.

So why not bring along your MX-5 and join us in the celebration.

Watch the MX-5s in action at Brands Hatch 2010

Mazda on Track will also be at Knockhill on Friday the 1st of July with one of their special Track Days (Please book directly with M.O.T. for this).

Check out this link for a £25 M.O.T. discount for Owners Club members.

Fantastic day, thanks to everyone, never seen so many 5's in one place before! Defo can't wait for next event. Mabey we could go a tad faster on track perhaps?? ;)

3rd Jul 2011 21:04 :: Pauline
Thanks for a great day out. Really loved going round the track and meeting everyone.

Great day out, my first time at MX5 Scotland event and what a surprise it was to find out 'lucy' (my car) won the best unmodified MK3 in show. Nice to meet some of the club members and I look forward to joining in another event soon. Well done to all the organisers of the event.

3rd Jul 2011 22:13 :: Jacqueline & Ian
Wow what a fantastic day, and also wall to wall sunshine at Knockhill :-)

Many thanks to Gavin for organising it all and to Knockhill for donating the trophies. Now, wonder where I put that after sun cream.

3rd Jul 2011 22:17 :: Kevin and Josh
thanks for a great day, especially to whoever was in charge of the weather!

Thanks to all the organisers for a fantastic day out. The racing was superb and the cavalcade round the track huge fun. My day was made when one of the Mk3 racing drivers offered - would I like to sit in his race car? - of course I did!

4th Jul 2011 06:54 :: Richie
Excellent day and great number of cars - weather to match. Shame it was such a slow cavalcade!

4th Jul 2011 07:08 :: Richardn
Great Day out. Thanks to Knockhill for the trophies, and Gavin and eveyone else who helped, and everyonr who turned up and made it a success

4th Jul 2011 12:27 :: Snowcat
Aah! Aah! Suuunbuuuuurn!

It's days like that which make me wonder why I've been away from M5S for so long. Thanks again for making an old wanderer feel so welcome. 8-)

Managing to "sneak" a few parade laps was the icing on the cake! First time I've actualy been out on the real circuit and was decidedly bricking it despite the fact we were barely crawling. X-D

4th Jul 2011 14:28 :: Ian
Hi Snowcat

Always good to seen old members returning to the fold. Glad you had a great day despite the sunburn.

4th Jul 2011 16:44 :: Gavin
Thanks to everyone who turned up at our area. Skin still soaking up the Aftersun cream. Report should be up soon.

4th Jul 2011 18:18 :: Rossnmo
A lot of fun on and off the track.
The racers were really friendly and seemed willing to put up with a constant stream of questions from interested enthusiasts.
Not sure which cars had the most modified engines. The Mx5's on the track or the Mx5's in the car park.

4th Jul 2011 19:46 :: Susan
Fab day out yesterday - even the sunburn was worth it ;-) Recommend a look at the photobox on Knockhill's website. Some good ones on there of us doing the laps!

5th Jul 2011 07:04 :: CJ
Thanks for a really brilliant day. Made to feel welcome and everyone so friendly. Weather was a bonus and the ride around the track was great.

5th Jul 2011 08:37 :: Gordon & Moira
Just recovering from the sunstroke and slight detour on way home (won't need sat nav says M!)Not been through Dunfermline for a long while!
Well done Gavin. We were hoping it was going to be you leading the cavalcade!
Fantastic day nonetheless.

5th Jul 2011 20:13 :: Anita
Had a brilliant time at my first event on Sunday.  Ended up with borderline sunstroke and a forehead that could fry an egg, but hey ho!  Looking forward to the next event. Many thanks to all the organisers  :-)

6th Jul 2011 08:55 :: tom currie
