  • Please bring your own PPE. Inc. facemask/ hand sanitiser. Mask should be worn by all visitors whenever they leave their allocated parking/working area. Drivers must wear full race gear whilst in the dummy grid/parc ferme area.
  • The main toilet block will be open throughout the day but all other buildings are out of bounds. Please take your rubbish home with you.
  • Each driver has been allocated a 6mx6m bay where they will be expected to park and work from throughout the day. Do not share tools.
  • Sessions will run between 10am – 4pm in groups to suit classes present on the day. Please leave by 5pm.
  • Karts should line up in single file on the dummy grid shortly before their session.
  • If a kart stops or there is an incident on the circuit during a session the session will be red flagged and the parent or team of the kart with an issue will be expected to recover the kart having taken instructions form the pit marshal.
  • NO repairs or modifications should be made to the kart on circuit or in parc ferme, all repairs or adjustments must be made in your allocated paddock space.
