SPECTATORS

SPECTATOR INFORMATION HERE

 We take spectator safety very seriously, so before reading anymore please take time to watch the FIA Safety video below and remember our mission is: Your Safety - Your Life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spectators are reminded that motorsport can be dangerous and, despite the organisers of the Dixies Challenge Rally taking all reasonable precautions, unavoidable accidents can happen. In respect of these, you are present at your own risk.

 

Please listen to the marshals and event officials – if they ask you to move or inform you that you are standing in an unsafe place, follow the instructions that they give. They are there for your safety and want to ensure that we run the safest rally possible. If it is deemed that anyone is in an unsafe place and they refuse to follow the marshal’s instructions the stage will be classed as being unsafe and as a result will be cancelled. Obviously we do not want this to happen, so we would greatly appreciate it if you would listen to and follow any instructions given by our marshals.

 

Please listen to what is said in the Motorsport UK Rally Future video below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You could very well be the first on the scene of an accident on a stage, do you know what to do? Some basic actions by you, until professional help arrives, could save a life. Another video aimed at competitors provides advice on what to do when you are First on Scene.   

 

 

Rally cars can do the unexpected, so expect the unexpected.

 

Remember rally cars may:

  • run wide on corners

  • cut corners

  • throw up stones

  • overshoot junctions

  • may leave the road

 

For your own safety and the safety of others:

 

  • Listen to the marshals and follow their instructions. They are there to help you and ensure the Rally runs within the safety guidelines prescribed by Motorsport UK

  • Be aware that marshals and officials have the right to work without being abused or threatened (remember they are all unpaid volunteers)

  • Arrive in plenty of time

  • Watch from a safe location, preferably on high ground

  • Observe and obey all event signage

  • Do not walk on the stage

  • DO NOT STAND IN PROHIBITED AREAS

  • ONLY STAND BEHIND BLACK & YELLOW TAPE

  • DO NOT STAND BEHIND RED & WHITE TAPE OR IN BOX JUNCTIONS

  • Ensure that children and infants are always accompanied by an adequate number of adults  who are responsible for their behaviour and safety

  • Remain alert

  • Park your car in such a position that it does not block the road – remember  emergency vehicles might have to leave or access the stage by that road

 

Please follow the Countryside Code at all times and respect other people’s property and take all litter home with you.

PLEASE READ THIS SAFETY BRIEFING ISSUED BY THE MOD
