EXCITING news has just been released by GMP Scotland when they announced that after a seven year absence the Knockhill Trioval is returning to the stock car scene, writes our Cowdenbeath Racewall reporter Jim Turner.

This year there will be a trio of Formula II World Championship Qualifying rounds in Scotland with all three taking place over the one weekend. The first will be at the Trioval, on Friday May 15, with the drivers heading to the Cowdenbeath Racewall for the second on the Saturday night.

On the Sunday the drivers head up to the Crimond Raceway for the third qualifying round in what will be an exciting weekend's racing.

Over the weekend there will be 105 points up for grabs which could see some lucky drivers all but guarantee a top ten place in one of the semi-finals.

The news on the Formula I World Championship qualifying round at Knockhill in Friday June 26 is still provisional but hopefully confirmation of this meeting will be announced soon – one way or another.
