How long does it last?

The action can last all day, but you are able to leave at any time. The WRC cars come through at 2 minute intervals and do most stages twice, while a separate National Rally will visit many of the stages too, so you will see lots of action.

For more FAQs, click HERE.

Which stage is best for children?

All children under 16 go free (excluding Rally Xtra venues @ Sweet Lamb and/or Cholmondeley Castle), making this a great half-term event. Cholmondeley Castle is an obvious choice for families, as it offers all-day entertainment, attractions, displays, parades, big screen and catering village.

For more FAQs, click HERE.

What is the Rally Village?

Located in Deeside, the Rally Village is where all the competing crews are based - in motor racing terms, it's the event's buzzing pits and paddock complex. Admission is free and fans of all ages can watch as the teams prepare their cars for the action in the fearsome forests. There's lots more to enjoy in the Rally Village too, with driver interviews, food outlets, trade stalls and a funfair.
