Program and Course Design Parameters
As background when designing the courses and program we wish to reiterate the parameters:-
- Our approvals are based on a minimal impact to life of those living in the Tweed Valley
- We recognise the impact of Christmas tourism in the Tweed
- We recognise the impact of the post-COVID tourism loading in the Tweed as well as the Schoolies arrival
- We must avoid school transit times and work transit time: before 9.00am and from 3.00pm
- We aim for simple site builds, with minimal impact to locals
- A progressive racing program with increasing difficultly
- No weekend road racing due to traffic increased loading and limited policing availability
