Vulcaniser Entry Form

Duty to warn

The multi-lap race course is not suitable for inexperienced riders.  The course involves steep hills and off-camber sections.  If entering, please choose a category according to your fitness and skill level.  The hillclimb only option is on wide non-technical track. 

In past events there have been several injuries including broken and dislocated bones.  Whilst there will be first aid on site be aware that the event is being held in a remote location.

Hazards include, but are not limited to, weather conditions, condition of my equipment, track surfaces, vegetation, and actions of other competitors, spectators, officials and livestock.

If you are driving up the  farm road be aware it is not suitable for vehicles with extra low ground clearance.  If a rock has rolled on to the road, stop and move it rather than risk it damaging the underside of your car.  Some grass sections may be slippery when wet.  If so, proceed with caution and stop if necessary.
