If my memory serves me right, they now organise the groups and pit lane a bit differently, last one i spectated looked very sensible

This is the consensus I was hearing from others
Knockhill are aware of the clowns moreso after many concerns and the 3 abreast types will be flagged accordingly.

I've been to a couple in the last six months and didn't have any problems with driving standards.

On that note, I had booked on for tonight, but work commitments mean I can no longer attend.

Does anyone know if its possible to transfer the booking, and if so, does anyone wish to buy my reservation? Offered for half price at 30, subject to Knockhill allowing this - will phone them to confirm shortly.

I was at one earlier in the year with a mate and my only criticism of driving standards would be they seem to have developed a tolerance of drifters.

Now, I've done trackdays in the same mate's M5. It was wet and every time I was round the hairpin, Macintyres or Clarks the car was broadside. I didnt do it when there were people right behind me, I didnt slow up to crawling speed to do it and then think I'm a hero booting it off along the straight afterwards and I didnt fcuk about trying to twin drift with my mate in his shitbox before spinning out through Duffus making several cars haul on the anchors mid corner.

So, in summary, I'd do a hot hatch quite happily. But if I found myself in a trampdrift infested group, specifically featuring a pair of cunts in an MX5 and mk3 N/A Supra, I'd ask to be changed group or my money back.

If you have a problem speak to the marshals at the time. I was at a Hot Hatch where a BMW 5 series was tail out round every corner, he got black flagged for it. The only thing I dont like about the Hot Hatch's is that often there is a huge gaggle of cars that won't move of the way. If you can find some space on track its OK for the money.

KH are normally quite good about transferring you to another day. I dont know about giving refunds though.
