Following are details of the spectator areas for the Rally

SS1 Hobcarton & SS2 Comb

The Visitor Centre on Whinlatter Pass is the car park for Hobcarton and Comb, For Hobcarton you will have a short walk across the road to Revelin Moss which is a really good junction for viewing., and for Comb follow the forest trails to the junctions with the stage. Siskins Café is open for coffee and bacon butties!

SS3 & 8 Greystoke.

PLEASE NOTE that this is a NO SPECTATOR stage this year. There will be harvesting carried out in the stage and the forest management have allowed the use of the stage for the event on condition that there are no spectators. So apologies for your disappointment but PLEASE DO NOT attempt to access this stage. However, marshals are welcome – do the online training at www.msauk.organd report to the start of the stage with your marshals accreditation!


This is a very short stage with absolutely no parking availability. Anyone trying to gain access to spectate is likely to block the stage approach and it will then be cancelled.

SS4 & 5 High Man

Spectator point from a car park at Low Bowkerstead. Beware Satterthwaite is extremely PR sensitive so if you must drive through the village be very considerate of the local inhabitants. It is best to approach from the South.

SS6 Grizedale

Three places to visit . High Cross at the north of the forest provides access to three spectator points and parking is ample. Machells Coppice on the east side of Coniston means a walk through the forest up to “scissors”, and Moor Top  provides access for spectators and disabled parking.

Please leave animals and children at home, take plenty of warm clothing and hot drinks. Obey the marshal’s instructions and stay within the designated areas. These have been planned with your safety in mind and wandering from these areas could cause stage stoppages and ultimately cancellation. If a car leaves the track near you follow the marshals commands – we don’t want you to be hurt attempting a rescue.
