A serious accident involving a motorcycle and a car took place near Knockhill Racing Circuit on Sunday evening.
Emergency services raced to the scene after the two vehicle collision on the A823 between Hill End and Knockhill itself at around 5.15pm.
Police confirmed that the motorcyclist, who is understood to be a man, suffered extensive injuries and was taken to Kirkcaldy’s Victoria Hospital for further treatment.
However, while no further details about the injured party have been released, their injuries were described as “serious but unlikely to be fatal”.
The Fife circuit had been playing host to the British Superbike Championship this weekend and traffic was far heavier than normal as crowds flocked to the venue.
Motorists leaving Knockhill were initially directed by police to turn right out of the circuit, with officers warning drivers not to attempt a U-turn as all routes are accessible from the south.
The road to Powmill was eventually opened shortly after 6.30pm, allowing motorists to turn left to ease congestion.
Huge tailbacks were reported in the area as a result of the accident, with visitors to Knockhill experiencing a lengthy wait to get out of the circuit’s car parks.
