This is a sheep farming area so no dogs will be allowed in the competition area or in the parking field.

Parking is in a field about 300 metres up a rough farm track so please take it slowly and leave the sports cars at home. There will be a parking charge of €2/£2 per car, collected at the gate to the field.
