After racing, ALL riders will stay in the pits area and NO riders will leave the pits area until ALL are safely off the circuit then everyone will leave together behind the lead car back to Lamh Dearg. All involved MUST be clear of the circuit by 1020. Entry is £10, with all proceeds to the David McCall Foundation.
