TYRE DISPOSAL
In the past we have had number of tyres found thrown in the tree line and placed at the bottom of the waste bins around the site and even blatantly left on a pit bay if anyone is found responsible for leaving tyres the minimum fine is £100. The cost of disposal is increasing for the club and is not sustainable. Tyre Bar code readers are in operation at all meetings.

PLEASE TAKE YOUR TYRES HOME WITH YOU!!

During the race weekends HKRC Officials are walking around the paddock checking on tyre disposal. HKRC will dispose of tyres for a cost of £5 per set of tyres please ask in Race Control, if not PLEASE take your used tyres home with you!
