We do charge for car parking at the Festival. The extra car traffic is one of the greatest impacts on the local area, one way to reduce the traffic is to share any spare spaces in your car. Check out the dedicated Download liftshare page: http://download.liftshare.org
There will be a designated pick up and drop off point at the race circuit. This will be located at the main entrance to the race circuit itself and will be well sign posted for the event
