This Open Pit Lane event will be managed via Mazdaontrack, who will be in attendance on the day. It is restricted to 72 cars, so there should be very little queuing to get onto this long circuit.
Are you a newcomer to trackdays? As on all trackdays, they are well managed and marshalled. There will be a comprehensive, compulsory, safety briefing at the start of the day for all drivers, followed by some slow “sighting laps” behind a lead car. There will be plenty of experienced trackheads present who will be only too happy give assistance to any novices.
Here's an old video clip of mine taken in 2010 (before I started to use semi-slicks!) with a keyfob camera, mounted low on the nearside, just in front of the foglight..... keep an eye out for the spinning Peugeot
The sound is a bit LOUD, so turn it down a bit!

Sign On 7:30 till 8:30
Safety Briefing 08.30
Sighting Laps at 9:00
Lunch break 12:00 – 13:00
