The Type-R responds instantly to the driver, no hesitation. Underneath the sculpted bonnet lies a four cylinder VTEC TURBO engine. It’s no surprise to discover this gives the Type-R the ability to sprint from 0-62 mph in 5.8 seconds and achieve 169 mph top speed.

  • "Good afternoon, I wish to express my gratitude for an excellent experience we had for my partners, birthday. Firstly I had a wonderful service from Lorna who was patient with me, friendly, polite and excellent customer service skills. On the day, the customer service continued to excel and my partner thoroughly enjoyed the experience, I now think I have opened the flood gates and he will be returning regularly! And finally the food was just the cherry on top to end our day, the young girl made us all fantastic chips and set us for the journey through Glasgow in rush hour! I have liked and reviewed your Facebook page. Please pass on my gratitude to your team and I look forward to visiting Knockhill again soon"

Not only was this an awesome experience for the participants but also for their families and friends. There are lots of options for viewing. Staff are friendly and very pleasant and helpful. Instructors are patient and encouraging and keep things going in a personable and light-humoured manner. Thanks and well done Knockhill Racing Circuit."

  • "Highly recommend Honda Civic Type R experience! Even in damp conditions, I was driving over 100mph on the track, loving every minute of it, with excellent instruction from Dennis Hobbs. Advice and instructions given entirely throughout the drive - a real confidence boost. I absolutely loved it! Thank you 😊"

I was here to do the Honda Type R experience as my wife bought me it for my 30th, can’t believe how much of a buzz it was to drive a car at 120 mph+ without getting moaned at and also the staff there where amazing. Will defo be doing this in the future again, 10/10"
