The 2024 Hills Ford Stages Rally Welcomes Spectators Details will be available closer to the 2024 date
Safety Message - Please take care when watching rally live stages
Spectators should be aware that all Motorsport can be dangerous and despite the organisers taking reasonable precautions unavoidable accidents can happen. Therefore you attend the event at your own risk.
We ask that you obey all the instructions of safety marshals, spectator marshals and police officers. These instructions will be given to you for YOUR safety. If you do not follow these, organisers reserve the right to delay or cancel a stage.
If you do decide to leave the stage before the last competitor, please walk on the designated pathways. Some crossing points may not be open until the last safety car has passed the point, due to competitors passing at a high speed and at regular intervals. NEVER WALK ON THE STAGE.
The organisers have made suitable arrangements for safe access to all spectator areas without the need to walk down the stage.
Roads leading to and surrounding the spectator areas will be clear ways and tow trucks will be operating throughout the day.
