Please note the change in parking arrangements for 2016.

In general there is limited parking available in Oxford. We recommend where possible that you share cars, use the Park and Ride, or travel by public transport.

For those travelling by car, we have put together a single page document with information on how to get to the track [link to attached doc]. Please leave plenty of time to find parking and get to the track. We have arranged parking for competitors and spectators at the nearby St Mary and St John Primary School, which can be accessed via Daubeny Road, and is a 5-10 minute walk to the track. There is a charge of £5 per car, 12-7:30pm, which is in addition to the stadium entry fee. There is absolutely no on-site parking at the sport centre itself.

No longer running?
As we expect all the Grand Prix meetings are going to be over-subscribed, it means we will have to turn athletes away. If you have already entered and can no longer compete please can you inform the person that your entry went to. This will not only allow another athlete to compete but can also mean that several athletes could be moved up a race (from C to B, D to C, E to D, etc. We consider this a matter of courtsey, both to the organisers and to your fellow athletes.
