Spectator Information

Ticket Sales

Advance ticket sales have now closed for this year’s event. Please note that privilege packs will not be posted out until 23 September.

Dates

Rally Yorkshire 2017 is being held on Friday, 29 September in the evening and Saturday 30 September during the day.

Spectator Areas

We have three spectator areas which are available to the public:

  • Friday, 29 September and Saturday, 30 September:
    • Wood Yard, Dalby Forest – This spectator area provides an excellent view of the competitors and has lighting, toilets and catering facilities. Whilst the ground is uneven, access is available to wheelchair users with assistance. Privilege parking is available for advance purchase ticket holders which will allow pass holders to park closer to the spectator areas.
    • Housedale, Dalby Forest – This spectator area gives an excellent, slightly raised vantage point over a fast 90 deg corner which transitions from gravel to tarmac. Due to the uneven ground, this spectator area is likely to be unsuitable for wheelchair users. Catering facilities are not available at this site.
  • Saturday, 30 September
    • Spiers House, Cropton – Located on a 80 deg corner, with little room for error this spectator area provides an exciting location to watch the nail biting action as it unfolds. Toilet and catering facilities are provided with plenty of parking on the road leading up to the site. Due to the forested area in which this spectator area is located it is unlikely this area would be suitable for wheelchair users.

Information on how to reach the Spectator stages is here.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

What we do ask is that you enjoy yourselves and keep yourselves safe. Please comply with requests from Officials and Marshals – they are there to ensure the safe running of the event.

On the competitive sections, rally cars travel very quickly and we have designated spectator areas to ensure you get a good view in as safe an environment as possible. Remember though – MOTORSPORT IS DANGEROUS AND YOU ARE PRESENT AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Green tape will guide you to the designated areas and red tape and/or red “netlon” fencing is there to define the limit of the spectator area. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CROSS THE “RED” LINE
