PATIENCE will be crucial with as many as 9000 punters heading trackside for tomorrow's Coffs Harbour Gold Cup meeting.
Racing Club CEO Russ Atkinson is pleading with patrons to heed special parking arrangements.
“Until 2.30pm we'll allow cars to drop off passengers in Howard Street but after that time, cars stopping against instructions will be booked by the (council) rangers,” Mr Atkinson said.
“Secure parking will be available at BCU International Stadium with regular shuttle buses running between there and the racecourse.
“Closer to the track there is parking off Hogbin Drive in the golf driving range but please be aware that if cars are left overnight, they must be removed by 9am Friday morning.
“Otherwise, the vehicle will be towed away to allow the business to resume its operations.
“As long as everybody co-operates and uses commonsense, there shouldn't be any problems with access, security or safety.”
Buses will run from the racing club from 4.15pm to 6.30pm for $2, with drop-off points at the Jetty Strip, Park Beach Plaza, the showground, Park Avenue, Sawtell, Toormina and Boambee East.
