Getting onto the festival arena
There is a short journey from the campsite to the festival ground so please make time allowances for this to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the activity.
Free Access for Carers
All disabled visitors entering CarFest on a paid for adult ticket are entitled to bring one carer free of charge. Please note if the disabled person is a child you will need to buy an adult ticket and claim a free child ticket as the carer. These can be ordered via our ticket agent See Tickets.
Your carer ticket will be the same ticket type that you have purchased eg Camping, 3 day, Saturday, Sunday etc...
To claim your free carer ticket please send proof of disability as per the information on the See Tickets website here.
Electric scooter & Wheelchair hire
The team from Event Mobility Charitable Trust will be returning to provide electric scooters and manual wheelchairs for the use of disabled, elderly and mobility impaired visitors to the show.
To reserve an electric scooter or manual wheelchair you can book on line at www.eventmobility.org.uk, print out an advance booking form from the website or contact the office on 01386 725391 to request a form to be posted to you (please be aware that advance bookings cannot be made by phone).
Scooters will be available to pick up next to the disabled car-park.
Please note, the number of electric scooters and manual wheelchairs are limited and must be booked in advance.
There will be a free wheelchair accessible shuttle bus service running from the disabled day car park and disabled campsite to the show site.
The bus supplied is only to the used by our disabled visitors plus one accompanying person.
If you require transport from the festival site to the campsite, this can be arranged via the Organisers Office.
Disabled toilets across site
Disabled visitors will have access to disabled toilets which are located in every field in the festival site. These facilities will be restricted for disabled visitors only. A map of these facilities will be available in the showguide or please ask a friendly member of festival staff.
We recommend that our disabled toilets can be used as a changing place facility.
Designated disabled area for view of the Track and Main Stage
Designated areas have been allocated for disabled visitors to view the track and main stage. These will be clearly marked in the show guides or ask our festival staff for directions. Please note the positions in these areas are allocated on a first come first served basis. Although viewing provisions have been carefully selected by CarFest staff we cannot guarantee full viewing of all events especially during the racing on the main track as the full track cannot be seen from any area. As a general rule we allow one carer to accompany a disabled visitor in these areas – but if space allows we will try and allow for more, our stewards will advise on this at the time.
Assistance dogs are welcome
CarFest welcomes all Assistance dogs which include Hearing Dogs, Canine Partners, Dogs for the Disabled and Guide Dogs
The medical tent is located next to the Organisers Office.
If you have any medication that needs to be kept cool, there is a fridge available in the medical tent. We recommend you take your medication directly to the medical tent when you arrive on site and can be left their across the weekend at your own risk.
Specific areas which we recommend as quiet or chill out zones. will be marked out in the show-guide.
