FRIAT FAQs



When will the FRIAT passes be mailed out?

Show answer

If you placed your order before the end of March your passes will be posted in May.

Which Customer Entry Point (CEP) do we use on Thursday and Monday?

Show answer

The Blue Car Park and  Customer Entry Point will be open to FRIAT members for access to the enclosure on Thursday and Monday unless you are told otherwise by email/or road signs.

Which Customer Entry Point (CEP) do I use on Friday, Saturday & Sunday?

Show answer

You use the Customer Entry Point (CEP) dedicated to your approach route (Green, Red, Blue or Yellow if arriving by coach/bus).  If you arrive via the Blue route you can utilise 'Gate J' which will be open to FRIAT members only 7.30am - 9.15am.  This gate gives FRIAT members an exclusive path to the Blue CEP and hence far quicker access to the Enclosure.

How do I get to 'Gate J'?

Show answer

To get to Gate J, by car you need to arrive and depart using the Blue route and park in the Blue Car Park. The traditional access Gate for the Blue CEP is Gate K and as you look at the Blue CEP Gate J is to your right.  FRIAT volunteers and Security Stewards will be on-hand, at Gate J, to confirm FRIAT Membership and manage queuing.

Can I buy access to the FRIAT enclosure for Monday only?

Show answer

No, the membership packages are MACH-1 (2 days - Sat & Sun), MACH-2 (4 days - Fri to Mon) or MACH-3 (Weds to Mon).  At the moment we do not sell individual days.

How do I book a 'white chair'?

Show answer

These are for FRIAT members who have a blue badge/ or severe mobility issues that mean they are not able to access the grandstand.  These are allocated on a first come first served basis when you make your booking.

I want to bring my child/partner/friend to the show on Saturday - can they use the enclosure with me?

Show answer

 No sorry, access to the enclosure is for FRIAT members only.  There is not sufficient space for additional guests to be given access during the public show days.

Can I choose where I sit in the Grandstand when I arrive?

Show answer

Seats are allocated in advance and your seat number will be printed on your FRIAT pass.  You can make requests for a specific seat at the time of booking but these cannot be guaranteed.

I can no longer come to the show can I get a refund?
