We do not charge any entrance fee or a parking fee at any of our events.

Please Keep any small children away from the track edge and away from any potential danger. 

If you are bringing a dog along with you please keep them on a lead at all times and clean up any mess as we also have small children at most events who like to play and  roll around on the hillside.

Please do not attempt to cross over the track unless a marshal is nearby and gives an indication it is safe to do so. Racers can be travelling at speeds of unto 50kmph and do not make much noise on approach.

Do not enter any taped out B zones or stand on the lower part of any track, if a rider is too crash they will ultimately go downwards towards the lower side of a track, B Zones are in place for the protection of everybody and are strictly no go zones to everybody inc media!. 

Please observe all signage and obey any Marshall or the Track teams directions, for your safety aswell as that of our team and the Racers.
