Security Information

We do appreciate that you’re going to be with us on site for most of the day, but the less you bring, the quicker you’ll get through the gates. We encourage you to pack as little as you can and only bring essentials. Once on site you will have access to free water and we have a massive range of food outlets that cater for every taste.

Could we also please ask, as an additional security measure, that you put luggage tags on all of your bags detailing your name and mobile number, so that it can be easily identified. Please don’t leave your bag or personal belongings unattended at any time.

Please note that due to security measures we do not have a luggage storage facility on site.

If you leave the venue to go back to your car or campsite then please ensure you have a pass out stamp as your ticket stub won’t allow you back in.

Gates will be open from Thursday at 2.00pm. Friday and Saturday gates open at 7.00am and on race day at 6.00am, but check our website or Facebook and Twitter for the most up to date details and event timetable.

We haven’t taken this decision lightly and we really do understand that this may cause some inconvenience to a number of you, but we take your safety and security seriously.

We will have lots of security staff, police and Racemakers on site so if you have any questions or concerns then please don’t hesitate to speak to them, they will be only to happy to help.
