Most Read

1. A47 Blofield Little Chef – This is an ideal spot though the car park is private property.

2. A47 Bridge over at Blofield and Acle – These locations are recommended, though spectators with cars are asked not to impede passing traffic.

3. A47 layby opposite the White Horse pub – On the wide grass verge.

4. Acle roundabout and garage – Wide grass verge with roadside barriers. Possible permission at fire station.

Acle straight cannot be recommended. Any laybys are too narrow for public safety.

5. Vauxhall Holiday Park, Great Yarmouth – Large grass area well back from the road.

6. A12 Gapton and Harfreys roundabouts – Footpaths and barriers for protection.

7. A12 bridge near Harfreys roundabout – Ideal spot.

8. A12 – Area around Hospital paths.

9. A12 Blundeston roundabout – Grass area back from the road.

10. A12 Corton roundabout – Northbound side. Large grass area.

11. A12 Corton/Lowestoft roundabouts – Grass areas with some barriers.

The above locations are also suitable for the evening return journey, along with the bridge over the A47 at Postwick and two laybys set back from the road.

Organisers have also reminded spectators not to block slip roads on and off main roads.
