It is 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. Feel the thrill of Knockhill’s legendary track as you push your driving skills to the limit on the same International Circuit as driven by Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss, David Coulthard, Paul De Resta and our very own Gordon Shedden.

Jaguar E-Type

Its combination of good looks, high performance and competitive pricing established the E-Type as a classic. It may be a classic but it’s a fast one – this series 1 e-type produce the same power as the 3.2litre, the same top speed however has more torque which meant better throttle response for drivers that did not want to shift down gears. This is your chance to gear behind the wheel of a British classic.
