Spectating FAQs

How will I know where to go?

Spectator areas are marked with signs at corresponding intersections.

How many cars will I see?

Depending on the entry list, you could see more than 50 cars! We will have more updated numbers when we get closer to the event.

How do I spectate?

In a Performance Rally the rally cars are started at one-minute intervals with fastest cars first and slowest cars last. (The top several cars usually start with a 2-minute interval.) To ensure you see the top drivers in action, you should arrive at your spectating area early, allowing for plenty of time to park and walk to the viewing location.

Want to find out who is fastest? You can time the cars to your location; pick a place where you can time each car as it passes, and read the seconds off your watch. Remember that all cars leave at the top of the minute, so if the first car arrives at 21 seconds, the next at 28 seconds and the next at 25, then the first car is 4 seconds faster than the third, and 7 seconds faster than the second.

A word of warning to you when you are spectating: STAY BEHIND THE BANNER TAPE. The banner tape has been placed by rally organizers and reviewed by safety officials. Behind the banner tape is as safe as you can get to spectate.

Do Not Position Yourself Behind Red Banner Tape. Those areas are extremely dangerous.

What does it cost to spectate?

If you want to navigate the woods yourself, it’s FREE! However, we do have a VIP Spectator Package with full bus service, meals, and excellent viewing locations.

Is it safe to spectate?

Yes. We do have a few tips for you, though. Please DO NOT venture off into the forest on your own. If you find your way into an unsafe place, we are required to stop the rally. Potentially unsafe areas will be marked with signs stating, “No Spectators Beyond This Point.” A nearby marshal will have maps and instructions to direct you to a safe viewing location.
