This week the Winter Series Race is at Fat Tyre Farm and NOT the Piney (Armidale State Forest).

To get there - starting from the Glen Innes Rd in Armidale head north 17.9km along the New England Hwy. Watch out for the old forestry saw on a post marking the required left hand turn, drive up 20m to the gate/grid. Parking can be found 30m to the left of the gate/grid. There is another gate right at the parking area to access FTF to the west.
