Where to park
The main car park will be open from 8:15 am. Park in there. Any overflow can park in the paddock and alongside the driveway but please fill in the main carpark first.
The toilets behind the café will be open from 8:15 am.
There is only ONE portaloo located near the start line. You have been warned.
There will also be several water cans located at the top station available for use.
We have whiteboards with set category start times, please make sure that you find the appropriate start time and allow at least 20 minutes to head up the chairlift to be there on time. These whiteboards will be located at race registration in the Handle Bar and Cafe, and at Validation (bottom of the chair).
It is going to be a great day racing! Patchy clouds with a high of 10 degrees. Don’t forget, this is a winter series race, meaning it is winter so please bring your windproof jackets and layer up as it can get very cold on the lift and there may be some standing waiting around.
Spread the hype! Bring your mates. And stick around after you race run to heckle!
Thanks, CAP Crew!
