I found the best way was to put yourself close to some other DDer, either in a garage or in the paddock, then do what they do when they do it.

Basically make sure you bring all your paperwork with you, your ACU licence, dog tag and novice bib and most importantly there's no such thing as a stupid question, well there is but we won't often remind you of it.

It was my first race at the begining of last year and I have to say everyone in the DD paddock was really patient, kind and will do their best to help you get it all sorted, but I have learned over the last year that most of the time no-one has much of an idea of whats going on anyway
But maybe a bit of good advice is to book into a pit garage, that way at least you will be around other DD racers all weekend.
