Facilities and Amenities

 

With a lot of new improvements made to the circuit over the last couple of years the track's facilities for spectators, competitors and officials now include:

FOR SPECTATORS

  • Car parking at various parts of the circuit, (some on the outside of the track while others are within the confines of the actual track).

  • There are 4 toilet blocks, all recently refurbished, located at all the major parts of the circuit in addition to toilet facilities within the circuit clubhouse. A new Block has opened in the paddock which  has disabled facilities.

  • Modern state of the art clubhouse in which can be found catering facilities, seated or carry out, on the ground floor. In addition, there are modern ladies, gents and disabled toilets. Stairs and a disabled lift lead to the first floor where can be found a lounge bar with a full view of most of the circuit, but especially all of the corners. The stairs and lift continue on to a second level which will provide a roof top view of the entire circuit sometime in the future, after erection of a safety rail and roof paving.

  • Raised spectator banks at all major corners as well as the start line straight, thus providing a better view.

  • A fenced in lawn area adjacent to the clubhouse provides a safe play area for children together with picnic tables for families. On the opposite side of the clubhouse there is a concrete BBQ area with a number of picnic tables adjacent to the rear door of the restaurant, through which food can be taken to be enjoyed on pleasant, sunny days.
