Thousands of Scottish BSB
fans look set to be joined by an influx of enthusiasts from Ireland, England and even the continent at next weekend's Knockhill
round of the Bennetts British Superbike championship.
"The Superbikes has been our best attended race day for several years now but additional funding from Event Scotland and Fife Council major events funding programme has enabled us to extend our advertising for the event further afield than normal," explained Ray Smith, the track's PR manager.
"We have spectators coming to visit from Holland, Belgium and Germany after placing advertisements in programmes for rounds of World Superbikes
and having the ferry service on our doorstep at Rosyth is a massive benefit not only to Knockhill
but to Scotland as a holiday destination for European visitors.
"Add in a good measure of Irish fans and we expect to hear a fair mix of accents and languages over our Superbike weekend," he concluded.
To assist with the expected high volume of spectator traffic the circuit will provide two separate free park and ride schemes on Sunday 16th July. North of the circuit will operate from Powmill village on the A977 and south of the track near Red Craigs Toll on the A823. Camping facilities will also be available at Powmill.
