We have some official news from KRF organizer Paul Casey... They are working on a Limited Edition DVD showcasing the highlights of Knight Rider Festival 2.

And if you were fortunate enough to be there in person, you'll be able to relive the experience again and again.

UK based automotive chain Kwik Fit, has a great new ad featuring KITT, voiced by William Daniels. This very cute ad is created by the ad agency DDB London.

KITT, David Hasselhoff's intelligent Pontiac Trans Am from the 1980s US drama Knight Rider, is to make a TV comeback in an ad campaign for the car repair firm Kwik-Fit.

The TV campaign, which Kwik-Fit said is about showing that it does "so much more than just tyres and exhausts", features the once unstoppable KITT getting a buffing while minus a wheel in a repair shop.

KITT's voice provided, as in the original series, by William Daniels. The campaign, by ad agency DDB London, breaks on Monday night.

April Fools has come and gone, but the Hoff story the media decided to run with yesterday was not the one we expected. If you caught our video KRF II Opening Ceremony You saw David Hasselhoff mentioning to Robin Leach (of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous fame) that he is working on plans for his own show, "the Rat Pack meets the Hoff meets Knight Rider." His fan club has even started a campaign to bring Hoff to Vegas.

Can it be true? Have a look at the original video and decide for yourself.
