Always a crowd pleaser, the Scottish Classic Sports and Saloon Championship brings some nostalgia to the Scottish Championship. In many cases this championship offers drivers the opportunity to race the cars that they grew up watching and envying, but it also provides an avenue for anyone – who enjoys a passion for classic cars – to get out on track and enjoy the sheer pleasure of hustling iconic cars of yesteryear around the undulating Knockhill racing circuit.

Both mass production-based cars and limited production cars can take part. The championship boasts 6 different classes which are mainly for cars manufactured up until 31st December 1989.  Additionally there is a seperate class for Ford Fiesta XR2 cars racing alongside the main championship cars and battling for the title of XR2 Champion.
