Supercar Ecosse Charity Event

Supercar Ecosse are delighted to invite owners of the below listed Supercars & Sports Cars, to participate in this exciting and unique charity event. As we are limited to 50 places they will be allocated on a strictly first come, first served basis.
We have organised this 2 day charity event, for the sole purpose of raising money for both ‘Help for Heroes’ and ‘Macmillan Cancer Support’ and are also arranging for several rehabilitating Military Personnel and Macmillan Nurses, to join us all for the weekend, as our guests.
On the same weekend, Knockhill Racing Circuit are hosting the Scottish Speedfair and Classic Festival both of which are incorporated into this fantastic weekend of events.
