Enjoy Live Motor Sport & Spectate

Watching motor sport on the television is one thing but there is nothing like experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of a motor sport event first hand.

With 5,000 events taking place every year at hundreds of venues right across the country, the world of live motor sport is within touching distance of almost everyone.

Not only that, a lot of events are open and accessible so you can wander around the paddock, pits and service areas between competitive sessions. And when the action is go, you can often choose which spectator area to watch from. It is generally only at the premier events, such as the British Grand Prix, that the paddock is off limits and your vantage point pre-determined.

Spectating Safely

Watching a live motor sport event is a thrilling experience and one of the best ways for fans to get close to the action. The Motor Sports Association (MSA), event organisers and venues strive to keep spectators safe but ultimately all spectators are responsible for their own personal safety.

Here are some tips that spectators should remember at live events:

  • Always keep your own safety in mind.
  • Park in a safe place.
  • Follow marshals' instructions at all times.
  • Observe and obey all event signs.
  • Stay within the official spectator areas.
  • Do not enter any prohibited areas.
  • Keep off the road or track.
  • Listen to official announcements.
  • Expect the unexpected.

On rallies in particular, remember:

  • Cars may run wide on corners.
  • Cars may cut corners.
  • Cars may throw up stones.
  • Cars may overshoot junctions.
  • Cars may leave the road.
  • Follow marshals' instructions at all times.

 

So, have fun but keep safe!
