Spectators have full access to the paddock and can freely browse around, but there are some safety rules to follow. We no longer print the racetrack's list of "do's and don'ts" in the raceday program so if you have any doubts ask a veteran or afm volunteer/worker what is allowed. Common rules are no one under 16 without a race license on anything with wheels, speed limit in entire facility 5mph, racer number on all vessels with wheels, be safe. This is especially important when it comes to children and pets; for their safety please keep a watchful eye on them at all times and keep them under control.
Gate Fees are $10 - $15 for adults, kids under 12 are free.
