Entry is free and will feature legs for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players. Pre-booking your place (on your preferred platform) is highly recommended as walk-ins will only be accepted if there are spots available after pre-registered players have checked in. Players may only play in one heat. Duplicate registrations will be removed with only the first date and time retained.
