Opened for racing in 1974, and now regarded as Scotland's national motorsport centre, the circuit was created by the realisation of a dream by farmer and motorcycle racing fan Tom Kinnaird. He fashioned the 1.3 mile circuit himself to form the demanding layout of twists and turns that make Knockhill a natural road racing venue. Derek Butcher bought the circuit and in 1983 and has subsequently invested heavily, with a spend of £100,000 on the pits area and track widening.
Knockhill, in Central Scotland, is some five miles north of Dunfermline, just off the A823, with the M90 motorway some four miles away. Edinburgh, a 45 minute drive, is some 20 miles to the south, Glasgow 50 miles to the west of the circuit.
