Max 5 Series
Sat 4th Jun 2005 to Sun 5th Jun 2005
organised by Central Scotland

Car Count : 17
[ show event report ]

A two day event at Knockhill racing track, the first time the Max 5 Series has been to Scotland.

Have managed to get vouchers from Knockhill for 50% off gate admission price for this event (?10.00 normal price) will hand them out at Rannoch Station Run or Pub meet on 2nd June, alternatively we could meet up somewhere before going to Knockhill.
Apart from the Max 5 series this is also the 3rd round of the BARC (British Automobile Racing Club) championship so there should be a good variation of cars and classes.  Highlights include the National Legends Championship, TVR Challenge Cup plus the great regular Scottish action from Legends, Radicals, Caterhams and XR2's.
Racing starts from approx 1pm both days with practice and qualifying in the morning.
There will be free admission on the Saturday where qualifying rounds and some races will take place, this would be a better day to get closer to the cars and drivers with the main championship races taking place on the Sunday.

What a great race the MAX5 guys put on.  These guys are really competitive - it was by far the best race of  the Saturday (despite the red flag incident shown in my piccies!)

If anybody is going to Knockhill tomorrow.
Car 21 needs a new clutch plate to be able to race. We desperately need clutch for a 1600 19991-1999
If you can help could you please contact Alyn Robson on 07802 360477 phone or text

I\'m down in Yorkshire so I can\'t get one up there for the morning

All you 5 owners should get your wellies and waterproofs on and get to K/hill to see the Max-5 race today.
I am a season ticket holder and go to K/hill frequently. Yesterday's Max-5 race was one of the best and most exciting races I've seen for a long time.

Just come home after an exciting weekend's watching at Knockhill. The MAX5 race was very close and really good to watch.  Just a reminder Douglas, please could you send your pictures to for their website, as their photographer couldn't make it.  Thanks to everyone.

Just posted some photos from Sunday's racing.  Again, very competitive stuff and the most entertaining race I saw (but I'm biased).  I might have to try and catch the MaX5 series later in the season down south.  Hope they come back next year!

What a fun day out that was. Sorry we didn't get down to the chicane to say hello, too busy watching the mayhem at the hairpin.

Tasty donuts too :-)
