British Superbikes Knockhill. 18 June 2017

The sun was out for most of the day which made a pleasant change from past visits and there was a good sized crowd as usual. Unfortunately due to injuries sustained in heavy crashes during practice Leon Haslam, Christian Iddon and Glen Irwin did not race in the MCE Superbike events.
