Spectator Information

Spectator Safety

Rallying is potentially very dangerous and we appeal to everyone to stay alert and follow the marshals instructions. If they ask you to move please do so as it's for your own safety. Please remember if the organisers deem a stage to be unsafe they will cancel it - don't be the one who causes it to be cancelled!

Watching a live motor sport event is a thrilling experience and one of the best ways for fans to get close to the action, experiencing the sport's sights, sounds and smells first-hand.

The MSA, event organisers and venues strive to keep spectators safe but ultimately all spectators are responsible for their own personal safety.

Here are some tips that spectators should remember at live events:

On rallies in particular, remember:


Spectator Warning

SPECTATOR WARNING: Please be careful where you park when visiting this weekend's stages, we wouldn't like to see your weekend spoilt by a fine for a parking infringement. You are advised to use the municipal car parks and warned that many streets have residents only or limited timescale parking. Please park considerately and make your weekend an enjoyable one!

For full spectator details, plus a Rally Village Show plan and guide, please support our chosen charity, Derian House Children's Hospice, and purchase our fantastic, full colour Official Rally Programme - ONLY 5.00.
