    Is it mechanical knocking? Is it from the bottom end, valve-train or gearbox?

    It could be something as simple as cheap oil taking it's time to warm up in these conditions and feed the cams etc.

    Get a diagnostic done and have it looked at, I would advise certainly not to drive the car under load if your hearing mechanical knocking.
