NO!!!!

Dirt roads

The end.

Where you park

4X4 Owners

1. Take first available space.

Sportscar Owners

1. Drive into carpark.

2. Circumnagivate park to create initial inventory of all spaces.

 3. Space selection criteria:- preferably two concrete walls either side of the bay, and armed guards- well away from any other vehicles, even if it means an extra walk in the rain.  – failing that, select the space with the cars least likely to have owners that would damage your car.
