The Make Smoking History Forest Rally is set to rev up from Thursday 18 to Sunday, 21 May 2023.
There are ample opportunities for spectators to enjoy the action out in the forests and in the Service Park, where crews can be seen frantically maintaining their cars.
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 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 1600s to more modern turbocharged Mitsubishi Evos, Subaru WRXs and even a number of International spec “R5” cars.
