Can vouch for this one

Went to this last year was at the stage through the grounds of somerley house, really good but bloody freezing and muddy, wouldnt have minded but I was in a hired pug 106 and very nearly got stuck in the car park, lots of cars needed a tow out.

Think they have a special stages on the Friday in the gardens at Bournemouth wouldnt mind going to that this year.

As always on Rallye Sunseeker spectators will be able to get a great view of the action.

On Friday 25th February you can visit Scrutineering at Castlepoint/Littledown Centre and watch the cars undergoing safety and technical checks as well as listen to driver interviews. Scrutineering starts at 09.30 and finishes at 16.00
Admission is free

Later in the day you will be able to watch the cars as they tackle the first two stages of the rally through the Lower Gardens and across Pier Approach in Bournemouth, starting at 18.30 and finishing at 21.00.
There is no charge for spectators but normal car parking charges apply in the nearby council car parks.The next day the cars take to the forest roads of Dorset and private roads in Somerley Park near Ringwood.

Regular rally spectators know that there is nothing more exciting than watching powerful cars scrabbling for grip on forest tracks as drivers fight to shave tenths of a second off their time, but fast cars and pedestrians can be a potentially dangerous combination. And, with ever more people eager to share the excitement of southern England’s premier rally, the safety of drivers, spectators and marshals continues to be our top priority.
Rallye Sunseeker has always been at the forefront of improving the safety of rallying and many of our innovations have been adopted by other events in the UK and abroad. Working with landowners and the police, Spectator Safety Officer David Walton has introduced some further improvements to car parking and spectator areas to offer you some of the safest places to watch the action.
The volunteer marshals will guide you away from the areas of highest risk such as the outside of bends or where cars could over-shoot junctions, but it is physically impossible for those marshals to cover every yard of a 10-mile stage. We therefore also rely on you to obey the warning signs, act sensibly and think about your own safety when spectating.
Would you describe walking, cycling, or pushing a baby-buggy alongside a motorway as sensible? No, of course you wouldn’t. So, with rally cars travelling faster than motorway traffic, but on narrow, twisting tracks, it’s equally daft to walk or cycle on a special stage. Neither is it sensible to stand – let alone sit – on a bend or junction where a car might slide off the track.
Rallye Sunseeker has an excellent safety record and we want you to help us keep it that way. Follow the safety guidelines in this programme and on the signs at special stages. If you are asked to move by the marshals or the safety cars that run in front of the first competitors, please do so. If you or other spectators stand in a dangerous place, the stage will be cancelled and everyone will miss out on the excitement of seeing top rally drivers in action.
That action involves rally cars being driven at the limit, so accidents can - and do - happen. This is when the second element of our pre-event safety planning – the response to incidents involving competitors – is put to the test. Rallye Sunseeker is able to call on the services of a wide range of highly-skilled support services capable of handling the most severe incidents.
But, before we can deal with an incident we need to know what has happened and where. We therefore have a network of radio operators on each special stage, linked through our control centre to all the senior officials. Based on the information received from the marshals and radio operators, a decision is taken on what response is required.
There is always a minimum of one doctor or paramedic available to respond, a rally rescue ambulance staffed with trained volunteers, plus a recovery vehicle, again crewed by trained volunteers, all of whom can reach the scene of an accident quickly. At several venues there are additional doctors, ambulances and recovery units if extra support is required. St John Ambulance Brigade also has first aid teams on duty and the Dorset Air Ambulance is on-call for major medical emergencies. We have tried to minimise the risks to you and the crews without destroying the spectacle that makes rallying so enjoyable. We want you to enjoy the action safely so, hey, let’s be careful out there.
