Renowned engine builder Steve Knott will be laid to rest on Monday.

The 65-year-old was tragically killed in an accident on his property late last month.

Knott enjoyed a 50-year career in motor racing building engines for national and international competition circuit racing as well as off-road, boats and speedway teams.

He was feted for having a big impact on the careers of several generations of racers and engineers including the ex-F1 technical head, Sam Michael.

Knott’s service is scheduled for 2pm on Monday, February 6, at Castlebrook Garden Chapel, 712-746 Windsor Road, Rouse Hill, 42km north-west of Sydney.

For those involved in this weekend’s Liqui-Moly 12 Hour, the location is just over two hours drive from Bathurst.

A wake will be held at ‘The Fiddler’ in the Grange function room at 3.30pm.

Mal Rose, a long-time competitor and production car champion, will read the motorsport eulogy at the service on behalf of Knott’s widow, Virginia and family. comment policy reserves the right to remove comments that are off-topic, abusive and ban users who do not follow the comment policy.
