Spectator Information


The safety of everyone that is involved with, participates in or spectates at the rally is our top priority, and so we ask that you read the following and keep it in mind on this and any other rally you may attend.

Please listen to the marshals they are there for your safety and want to ensure that we run the safest rally possible. if they ask you to move or inform you that you are standing in an unsafe place please follow their instructions.

Spectators who are asked to move but refuse to do so are putting their own safety and that of others at risk. Where this happens the rally marshal has authority to notify the stage commander, who will take appropriate action, which may include stopping the stage or the stage being cancelled.

Rally cars can do the unexpected so, for your own safety and that of others, please:

  • Respect the marshals and follow their instructions
  • Observe the colour coded tape and all signage

Red and White means PROHIBITED AREA, so a no-go location for everyone.
Black and Yellow are the designated spectator areas – please stay within these areas.

  • Don’t walk on the rally stage – Once the road is closed it is an offence to walk on the closed road, including verges.
