This championship represents an opportunity for you to own your own racing car, become a racing driver and compete for a full season at Scotland’s premier racing circuit, Knockhill, for less than £6,500!

To keep the racing exciting and the costs under control, the Citroen C1 Cup cars run to very simple but tight regulations. The race cars are almost literally a C1 road car with a roll cage bolted in, meaning that you can build a car – from start to finish – over the course of a weekend, if you’re in a rush.

The C1’s 1 litre power unit may not make them the fastest race cars on a Scottish Championship race weekend but we guarantee that racing door handle to door handle around the humps and bumps of Knockhill racing circuit will bring a smile to any racers face – whether you’re a seasoned campaigner or a complete newcomer.

Alongside the battle for the outright championship, there is also a Newcomers Cup for anyone who has not held a Motorsport UK competition licence before.

Additionally, if you’re feeling ambitious, there are C1 Cup endurance races held throughout the UK and even at Spa-Francorchamps, where a 24 hour race is run annually.
