A stag weekend in Edinburgh is all about the castle, the Royal Mile, a few wee drams - oh, and immense super-saloons revving their faces off in the British Touring Car Championship! Coincide your stag with the Knockhill date on the BTCC calendar, and we'll get you privileged spots for qualifying day.
Knockhill is the only Scottish circuit with FIA international grading. Short, fast and built for a combination of blistering straight driving and sudden turns, it's a guaranteed thrill-fest. You'll notice the BTCC drivers adapting their style throughout the day to get quicker and quicker lap times - throttle to the floor and balls to the wall is the way to go at Knockhill!
What Knockhill doesn't have in length, it makes up for in surprises. The track drops sharply in unexpected places, giving you lot plenty of opportunity to see your host Rob Austin catching full-on air in his monumental Audi A4! All in all, there's a massive 200ft in difference between the lowest and the highest points on the course.
The Knockhill BTCC qualifier is roughly 20 miles from Edinburgh. It's surrounded by dramatic countryside and is dead easy to get to. Head up the A90 onto the M90, then take the A823. At just 45 minutes from the city centre, it'd be crazy not to. Stag weekend genius!
