Following are details of the spectator areas for the Rally

Parking will be by pre-purchased tickets – this gives us track and trace ability! See details following.

Tickets are on sale now  at £10.00 per car and can be bought by going to www.ticketsource.co.uk/malcolm-wilson-rally  or by going to www.ticketsource.co.uk and searching “Malcolm Wilson rally” or any part of that.

You will need to download the ticket to your phone ( or print it off!) Choose either Whinlatter or Grizedale. You will not be able to pay on the day but as you enter the car park you will be given a programme – one per car.

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 within the stage. Forest England have felled many trees giving more exciting viewing on Comb.

Siskins Café is open for coffee and bacon butties!

SS3 Wythop

We have previously offered parking on the old A66 road but we are using this for competitor access so don’t want it blocking by spectators. There is a small amount of parking in the Bus Turning Circle and access to the spectator area is via a steep path – be careful!

SS4 & 7 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 follow thelinkunder Marshals or let Karen Spencer Karen@silkrallyradio.com know you are attending.

SS5 Grizedale South

Previously we have used Machells Coppice for access to Scissors crossroads. However this is unavailable as Storm Arwen has caused many trees to blow over and these have been removed and now the car park is full of logs ! Please choose the other car parks on the North and East side of the forest.

SS6 Grizedale North

Two places to visit . High Cross at the north of the forest provides access to three spectator points and parking is ample.  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.
