From its humble beginnings in the 1970s, Knockhill Racing Circuit has evolved and developed to become Scotland's Motorsport Centre - the modern, fully-equipped race track that we have today. Over the years Knockhill has seen its share of thrills, spills and action, all now captured in this beautifully presented band informative official 50th anniversary book.
This is 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. Charting the highs and lows of both the racing and the business over the years, this is a story of the courage, determination and willpower needed to succeed against all the odds, on and off the track.
With a huge range of brilliant photographs bringing the last five decades to life, KNOCKHILL relives the racing exploits of so many of the greats, from Colin McRae and David Coulthard to Niall Mackenzie and Steve Hislop, not forgetting legends like Sir Stirling Moss, John Cleland, Louise Aitken-Walker and Gordon Shedden amongst many others. And it's the perfect way to celebrate the 50th anniversary and look forward to fifty more amazing years of motorsport at Knockhill.

STUART GRAY first visited Knockhill in 1977, just three years after the circuit was opened, spectating as a fifteen-year-old at the Scottish round of the British Rallycross Championship. This was to be the start of a lifelong association with the Fife circuit.
One of his first competitive events, aged seventeen, was at Knockhill taking part in an MG Car Club driving AutoTest. He was a frequent spectator at car race meetings and then raced on a regular basis at Ingliston and Knockhill from 1985 to 1990, by which time he was a full-time member of the Knockhill team. His career there started in 1986 with a vocational work placement while studying for his sports management degree at Moray House College.
Stuart's initial role was as the senior racing driver instructor for the newly created Knockhill Driving Experiences, and he also pursued sales of corporate days and group bookings. In 1990 he became a founding Director of the Association of Racing Driver Schools and British Association of Rally Schools and a Director of the local tourism association. Subsequently, he was appointed Assistant Circuit Manager, then Circuit Manager and ultimately Knockhill Director of Events and Marketing. In 2012 Stuart also became Chairman of the Knockhill Motor Sports Club.
