Road Closures


In order to create a safe environment for both the riders, spectators and general public the following temporary road closures and parking restrictions will be in place on Sunday 14th May 2017.

These arrangements will be controlled by Police and stewards. Access will be maintained to properties on the circuit as and when it is safe to do so.


Initial Road closures will be installed at 8am. For the race we have a number of full road closures that stay in place for the full day and the remainder of the road closures are rolling road closures that are put into effect as the race approaches.

The race route is shown on the map with a RED LINE and the additional road closures needed to make the race safe are shown with a BLUE LINE. Residents who have vehicles on the BLUE LINE will be able to leave the area at any time as long as they are not driving towards the race route.

We are working fully with the Emergency Services and access will be allowed for them at all times throughout the day.
