Getting There

Head for Lichfield on the A38, follow signs for Fradley Industial Estate about 2 miles (guessed) north of Lichfield. Straight on at all roundabouts until you pass the skid pan on your left. The sprint ciruit is the next left.

On Arrival

Signing On

Sign on is usually at the same place as competitors in the hut by the paddock entrance.

Circuit Usage / Configurations

Short sprint course, out and back with return road. Sometimes uses 2 lap format.

Posts

3 posts, all on the outside by fence. Paddock gate sometimes covered as well.

Startline

Plus the start line, of course.

Lunch / Circuit Customs

Good resident caterers ("Dinner Jackets"). Some promoting clubs give a lunch voucher. Even without the prices are reasonable. Marshals move to the front of the queue if the lunch break is limited. A bit slow to open first thing, but usually time for a bite before practice starts.

Marshal's Perspective

Not the most exciting of venues, but can be good entertainment, especially if there are rally cars or Porsches who can throw them about on the twisty bits. Standard of organisation/marshalling can vary hugely according to Club. Pretty safe venue, with not too much to hit, so most marshalling is recovery from spins and failures. Weather always seems to be miserable when I go, hence the term 'Curboroughing down' describes that horrible misty rain that gets inside your collar.

Scanner Frequencies

Organising clubs use their own or hire shenstone & district car club's radios, so varies
