Spectating

Details of official designated spectator areas will be posted here leading up to the event. The full information will not be made available until a couple of weeks before the rally. The organisers ask that all spectators respect landowners property and obey marshals instructions. An exit fee will be payable for each vehicle accessing the spectator car parks, proceeds from which will go to local charities.

POLICY ON THE USE OF UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES (‘DRONES’) 

INTRODUCTION 

Drones are becoming increasingly prevalent and Motorsport UK appreciates that they allow for the capture of video footage that may offer promotional benefits for the sport. 

However safety is the overriding concern and this policy sets out the Motorsport UK’s clear position on the use of drones at events run under its general regulations. 

THE POLICY 

  • Recreational use of drones is not allowed at events run under a Motorsport UK Permit
  • Commercial/media operators may only use drones for aerial work at events run under a Motorsport UK Permit when all of the following requirements are met: 
    • The drone operator holds a valid CAA Permission and operates within the parameters of that CAA Permission at all times 
    • The drone operator holds a minimum £5million public liability insurance cover, specific to aerial work 
    • The drone operator prepares an operations plan and submits it to the event organiser in advance 
    • The drone operator has the prior written agreement of the event organiser and venue owner, and operates within the parameters of their permissions, which may be more restrictive than a CAA Permission 
    • The drone operator provides a task specific risk assessment and location plan o The drone operator signs on with the event organisers before operating the drone  o The drone operator does not overfly the competition course (track or stage), assembly areas, spectator/public areas, paddocks and service areas 
    • The drone operator obeys the instructions of event Marshals and/or Officials at all times.
