Spectators

Spectating at the Make Smoking History Forest Rally is absolutely FREE.

>> Download the 2018 Spectator Guide (4.5mb)

A Rally differs from other forms of motorsport in that the cars do not compete on a ‘circuit’ instead they compete on closed road sections that they have only driven over twice in order to make their ‘pace notes’, a short-hand system of symbols that enables the Co-Driver to describe to the Driver what hides around the next corner or over that blind crest.  In an event they may only see a particular corner 4 times…and given that the gravel conditions will be different each time, rather than the same lap after lap after lap, many argue that Rally drivers are the most skilled of all motorsport competitors.

There is a wide variety of cars competing including Classics like Ford Escorts and Datsun 1600’s to more modern turbocharged Mitsubishi Evos, Subaru WRXs and even a number of International spec “R5” cars.

A reminder that MOTORSPORT IS DANGEROUS.  As Safety is our number one priority there are some safety instructions that we’d like you to be aware of, please take the time to have a quick read through the Spectator Safety guidelines here so that you are able to make the most of your motorsport experience.

Spectating is FREE!! Yes, you get to spectate for FREE… whether at Barnard Park in Busselton, the infamous Healthway stage near Nannup or you prefer just wandering around the Nannup Service Park… it is all FREE.

Maps of the stages are available here.  There are many vantage points for Spectating, Download the 2018 Spectator Guide (4.5mb)
