Tartan Tarmac’s Big Day Oot, Knockhill 22nd September

Tartan Tarmac are delighted to have teamed up with Knockhill Race circuit to deliver an event day, the likes of which has not been seen before at the race track on Sunday 22nd September.

The “Big Day Oot’s” aim is not only to reinvent a track day and show, but it will combine numerous elements on and off track that will entertain all members of the family. With live music including internationally acclaimed Dirty Harry headlining, we will also have Chery Red 53 adding an American Rockabilly spice to our American car show as well as spectacular track and stunt action to wow all!

Add in a demo by a Footwork Formula One Car, World Stunt Driver Kevin Carmichael and an amazing Bike v Car drag race (subject to weather), the Big Day Oot promises to live up to its billing as a great day out with a difference.

As part of this fantastic family event, we’ll be hosting our traditional Show & Shine event – open to all showcars and with a fantastic selection of prizes on offer from AutoSmart, We Restore Alloys and Knockhill.
