Where To Watch

Grampian Forest Rally 2018 Spectator Guide

The rally is based at Milton of Crathes, Banchory all weekend. Late afternoon and evening on Friday 10th the cars will be scrutineered and the competitors documentation completed.

On Saturday the ceremonial Start will be held in the centre of Banchory, at Bellfield car park, whilst during the day the competitors will return to Milton of Crathes for servicing. There are two Spectator Areas in the forests, in Durris and Fetteresso and, as these stages are run twice there is plenty of opportunity to see the action.

Friday 10th August: Milton of Crathes: Scrutineering from 4.00pm to 8.30pm

All competing cars have to be examined by MSA Scrutineers to ensure that they comply with all safety requirements, and for their eligibility to run in the class they have requested, before they are allowed to start the event.

Come and see the cars and their crews at first hand, there is plenty of parking and refreshments and toilets will be available at the venue.

Saturday 11th August: Ceremonial Start at Bellfield car park, Banchory town centre: Cars assemble from 8.30am with driver interviews and commentary. First car start time: 9:00am

The competitors return to the finish arch at Milton of Crathes from around 2.30pm in the afternoon when the winners will be announced with the traditional champagne spraying ceremony.

Designated Spectator Areas will be located in Durris Forest and Fetteresso Forest: details of these will be given nearer the event.

The Spectator Areas and car parks have been provided by Moray and Aberdeenshire Forest District for which we are very grateful. The Car Parks will be manned by members of Aberdeen Balgownie Rotary Club and all proceeds go to their supported charities. Please use these car parks and give these people your co-operation to make everyone’s day as enjoyable as possible.

Event Programmes will be also available nearer the event date- check details in the Programme Sales section.
