Pit Priority Parking

This limited space parking area is located at the bottom of the hill, near the Pits. If you have purchased a Pit Priority Parking ticket please follow signs from the N2 and collect your parking sticker from Muse Restaurant, located on Old Cape Road en-route to the event, before 2PM.
STICK THE STICKER ON THE TOP RIGHT OF YOUR WINDSCREEN. Without it, you will be directed into the Main Public Parking!
Follow the signs to the Pit Priority Parking area. It is located in a field, and is not advisable for sports cars as the access to the Pit Priority Parking area is along a dirt road. Rain will also make this road slippery, so rather take a Shuttle in the event of wet weather or find a friend with a 4×4!
