The entry is impressive, as are the teams and the whole set up with some 2500 coming and staying in Fife for four days or more.

Tarran Mackenzie is returning to Scotland with the coveted number 1 plate on his Yamaha and Perth sensation Rory Skinner is continuing his second season in the British Superbikes and has already marked himself out as a title contender.

Stuart Gray, the Knockhill director of events said "It is so special to see the British superbikes return north of the Border.

"They could not come in 2020 because of Covid-19 travel restrictions and last year, we were restricted to only 1000 spectators. This year, interest has been great and we cannot wait to see the spectator banking's full again with enthusiastic, knowledgeable fans who simply love the spectacle of such top class racing.”
