Wow! Two magnificent books are available just in time for Christmas!

Knockhill, 50 years of racing by Stuart Gray charts the story of Knockhill’s journey from a farmer’s grazing land to an international race track, reliving legendary moments, incredible action and motorsport triumphs as well as the stories of the men and women who have raced and worked at Knockhill over the last half century.

The Scottish Rally Championship 1980-1989 by John Fife is the first of six planned books documenting the history of Scotland’s premier national motor sporting competition. Despite the fact that many books have already been written about Colin McRae, this book features previously unpublished information and photographs from his early years in the sport – written and photographed by someone who was there at the time! As such this book will appeal not just to Scottish rally fans but to a wider audience.

So, if you’re on the nice list, the naughty list, or just misunderstood, here’s hoping Santa pops one under the tree for you!

Jon Bolton

Jon is our Regional Training Coordinator, and also our Communications and Publicity Manager.
He went on his first rally at the age of 5 when his uncle was marshalling the Cropton Forest stage on the Lombard RAC Rally. That was in the days of Roger Clark and the all-conquering Escorts. The sounds and smells of rally cars have never lost their appeal. As an adult, working on an ambulance crew covering Cadwell Park in the mid 90s, he frequently encountered drivers who had come to an abrupt stop somewhat sooner than they had anticipated. Jon is a licensed rescue team member and Motorsport UK Trainer. He sits on Motorsport UK's Training Working Group and their Rescue and Recovery Working Group, as well as being a member of Motorsport UK's national training team for Safeguarding.

He is a STEM Ambassador and a Scottish Regional and UK National Judge for F1 in Schools, a not-for-profit social enterprise aiming to change the perception of STEM-related subjects through global competition.
