Race Day Info

VENUE

Race day is based at Quest Farm vineyard on the Wanaka to Luggate Highway in Central Otago (official address 1037 Cromwell-Luggate Road).  To find Quest Farm head away from Cromwell towards Wanaka for approx 5km and turn left into Quest Farm where signposted.  Follow the gravel road up to the car parking signage, where you’ll find the base camp with marquees, food, coffee and sponsor displays.  On race day there are various food, drink and trade retailers.  Bring cash because there isn’t any eftpos facility.


CAR PARKING

There is ample car parking close to the starting gate.  Signage and officials will direct you to the closest car park area.  Don’t park in any area other than signposted – Quest Farm is a working vineyard and areas have been set aside for the race to ensure minimum disruption to the Farm.  Please be patient; we have a large number of vehicles to park while leaving access for emergency vehicles and avoiding disruption to residents and normal traffic on the day.

Cancellation:  If the forecast for Sunday is not positive, or if Sunday dawned no better, or if the course is deemed unsafe, the event may be cancelled.  This decision would be made by 8:00am and posted on http://www.winterquest.wordpress.com and the NewsTalkZB cancellation service.
