Occasionally, the route you are directed to will not be the shortest route in terms of distance. However, it will allow you to approach the racecourse, enter and park in the correct zone in the fastest time possible. Please help us to help you have the smoothest and quickest access into the course by following the correct signs and not routes that you have previously used.
In the event that your vehicle may need towing on or off site, please ensure that you know where the towing eye/hook is located on your vehicle to help the organisers and tractor drivers help you as quickly as possible.
