Ingliston Motor Racing Circuit

A personal introduction:

Ingliston July 1966

As a boy I always had an interest in cars in general, but not really racing cars; and then one day in July 1966, at the age of 9, my parents took me to a motor race meeting at Ingliston (near Edinburgh, Scotland) for the first time - and I was hooked!

I visited Ingliston, and later Knockhill, many times during the next few years as a spectator, and later (1979 - 1981) as a competitor with my own Formula Fords (initially a Hawke DL15, and later a Hawke Mk21).

During these visits I took many photographs, which have since lain virtually undisturbed in my attic. Now, due to the facilities of the Internet, I am able to display a selection of these photos on this website for anyone with an interest to view.

Please feel free to browse at your leisure (click on the “Photos” button near the top of the page, or one of the programme covers). Perhaps some of these photos may bring back some memories of your visits to Ingliston in its heyday? If so it would be nice to hear your comments, and I would encourage you to leave an entry in the “comments” page.

Please bear in mind that most of these images are derived from 25-30 year-old 35mm transparencies scanned in via a relatively inexpensive scanner, so don't expect digital quality!
