Do I need to book in advance?
To guarantee your place on an event you do need to book in advance. If you have already made a booking for an event and want to add an additional driver or garage, please contact the circuit directly.
What happens if the weather is poor?
It is very rare that we will have to cancel an event due to adverse weather conditions. Testing takes place if it is raining and it's a great opportunity to advance your wet weather driving skills.
