On Arrival

Signing On

In a wooden hut near Triangle bend, under the shade (drips) of large trees. The hut is to the right (as you approach Triangle from the Paddock access road), i.e. just towards the Start from triangle.

Briefings are usually held in the gravelled area outside sign-on. In between sign-on and briefing why not have breakfast at the splendid coffee/food bar to the left of Triangle and uphill from the Paddock.
