All riders must have a current CA License and an Australian Standards Approved helmet.
Same model helmet without Australian Standards Approval will NOT be accepted.

Weather is a factor in conducting safe racing as our circuit has some tight turns to negotiate at the turnarounds. We will try and provide as advanced notice as possible via NSCC Facebook Page or Twitter.

Beaumont Road is a public road, and the club has both council and NSW Police approval to conduct this race.
At NO TIMES a CLOSED ROAD. Trained Traffic Controllers ensure the safe passage of vehicles whilst the race is in progress.
