Scottish Ford Live & Hot Hatch Car Track Day, sponsored by Elite Automotive, is now the 3rd largest Ford event in the UK featuring all Ford models as well as a huge display from the Ford RS Owners Club. The show areas are packed with display cars, prestige show cars, competition cars and on the track there will be Ford only driving sessions within Hot Hatch sessions.
We are delighted to have a great number of new features this year including the return of one of the world’s best stunt drivers Paul Swift, custom truck display, M-Sport trade stand, Transit Scotland and a new elite car display within the covered pit lane garages.
All Ford models are welcome, so come along and enjoy this huge Ford Festival. Even if you don’t own a Ford, but would like to take your vehicle on track – spaces can be booked via our Track days Section (special rate for Ford RS Owners Club members).
Now into its 7th year, the Scottish Ford Live & Track Day and Show, sponsored by Elite Automotive – in association with the Central & East and North East of Scotland RSOC Regional Groups – has grown year on year with 2016 acting as the biggest and best event yet. Up to 150 cars will take to the Knockhill track and some 300 plus Fords of all ages will be on show. We welcomed all Ford models, young and old, with participating Clubs/Owners travelling from as far afield as Durham and Oxford just to showcase their vehicles.
This year, we are improving further on the number of cars participating and expanding the diversity of vehicles on show. We’re also working hard behind the scenes to entice a few ‘Special Exhibits’ never seen in Scotland.

- Hot Hatch track sessions – all makes and models of vehicle welcome

What is Scottish Ford Live?
Scottish Ford live is a car track day and show where we welcome hundreds of Ford models from up and down the country, and beyond, to celebrate the famous Ford brand – both on-track and off – all in association with the Central & East and North East of Scotland RSOC regional groups.
What will l see at Scottish Ford Live?
It is two events in one! The main live activity of the day is, of course, the track day sessions where you will see individual car owners take to the famous twists and dips of the Knockhill track behind the wheel of a vast array of vehicles including Citroen, Renault, Subaru, BMW and Honda. We’ll also have dedicated Ford only sessions where you’ll see some of the most iconic Ford models being put through their paces on track including RS Escorts, Cosworths, Fiestas, Capris and many, many more.
Off-track is event number two! You will see upwards of 300 Ford cars on display, both from private individuals and Ford Owners’ Car Clubs – all with a single aim – to showcase their pride and joy to an enthusiastic audience. The man-hours alone spent on prepping these cars for the Show ‘n’ Shine element of the show is staggering, and quite simply, it is hard to believe that some of the cars are more than 40 years old, such is the pristine condition of their presentation. The entertainment and action continues with world class stunt and precision driving by the renowned Paul Swift as he takes to two wheels in his Ford Focus RS!
Why should l come to Scottish Ford Live?
It’s a great family day out for all Ford fans! If you ever had a Ford or own a Ford, this event is for you! It’s very much like a time warp as you stroll along the rows and rows of some of the most iconic cars the planet has ever seen, such as MK1 and II Escorts, RS2000s and Sierra Cosworth RS500s. As well as the old cars, there will be plenty of the newer Focus and Fiesta ST lining the paddock – in every conceivable colour you could imagine. It really is a Ford Owners’ paradise, and even if you are not a Ford fan, it’s great to see how like-minded people and Car Clubs can come together to share in a common aim – to celebrate all things, Ford!
