Circuit Race Road Closures
The majority of the Race Route (Castle Square, Westgate, Union Road and Drury Lane) will be closed from 11am to allow the large amounts of infrastructure for the event to be installed. Access to the Bailgate will be closed at 3pm.
The race route will be fully barriered and no vehicles will be allowed to park along the route. A No waiting cone order is in place and vehicles will be removed if required.
Access and egress for residents will be maintained up until the start of the race which is 5pm for the Women’s race. There will be a short window in between the two races where will allow vehicles to leave or gain access to House’s/car parks along the route. We expect the gap between races to be 18:45to 19:15. The route will then be fully closed again for the Mens race. We expect this to be in place until around 8.45pm. After this time we will facilitate access for residents but expect the road closures to remain in place until 10pm for the breakdown of the event.
Westgate Academy - We are liaising with the School but access will be maintained for Parents to pick up the children at School close time. You should access the School via Burton Road/Rasen Lane junction.
Car Parks - There will be clear signage to advise of the issues regarding egress from the Car Park whilst racing is taking place. You will NOT be allowed to exit during a Race. Westgate 2 Car Park (next to the closed Westgate Toilets) will be out of use for the period Tuesday to Sunday as this is being used by the Organisers.
