FFAG rings with a racetrack configuration are very promising as their flexible design allow for dedicated spaces for injection/extraction, RF cavities etc. A racetrack FFAG is considered as an option for the nuSTORM facility, which aims to deliver neutrino beams produced from the decay of muons stored in a ring with long sections pointing towards detectors. In this paper we discuss the definition of dynamic aperture in these machines and use the PyZgoubi framework to compute the many turn motion in the nuSTORM ring. The roles of machine imperfections and symmetry are discussed.
