Maps of the courses are now available here.


Parking please note that there is not sufficient parking at Horspath, and that we have arranged with BMW/Mini to use their car park for competitors. Could you please ensure that all team managers and competitors are told that they must use the BMW car park, gate 7, and walk the final 400 yards to the Horspath recreation ground?  I attach a map, which needs to be circulated to anyone who is driving to the ground.


Parking: BMW MINI Plant Oxford, Cowley, Oxford, OX4 6NL
