Dayinsure Wales Rally GB

Car Parking, Disabled Access and Public Transport

All tickets offer free car parking at the stages.

Spectators who buy the World Rally Pass and Day Passes can choose their own itinerary including the stages they wish to visit and the car parks they want to use.

Availability at any car park will be on first come, first served basis and is not guaranteed. To avoid disappointment, spectators should arrive at their chosen car park in plenty of time as spectators who buy tickets on the day will also be trying to access the car parks. The online Rally Planner (available from early September 2017) will provide car park opening times. Arriving at a car park with only a couple of hours before the stage starts is not usually sufficient to guarantee a parking space.

OVERNIGHT PARKING

Some car parks will open the day before the stage runs and will remain open overnight. In order to cover the costs of safety, security and lighting, a charge of £10 will be made for each car and £20 for each motorhome. Details of which car parks are open overnight will be available nearer to the event.

COACH AND MINI BUS ACCESS

Guidance regarding coach and mini bus access at the spectator car parks will be available in due course.

DISABLED ACCESS INFORMATION

Information regarding recommended accessible venues for disabled spectators will be available in due course.
