Passenger rides

The Rally Stage isn't just for spectators. For those who want to get more of a thrill from their day at show, head over to Stage 2 and book yourself in for a passenger ride with one of the experienced rally drivers, many of whom still compete regularly.

You'll be taken for 3-4 laps around the stage, having had the experience of getting rally ready!

T&Cs apply - see details below 

Featured Cars

Cars featured on the Rally stage have included classic 1960s Mini Coopers to the latest Volkswagen Polo R5. The stage saw Group B cars including Audi Quattro, Ford RS200s and a Peugeot 205 T16.

Plus Formula 2 cars from the 1990s including an ex-works Vauxhall Astra kit car, a Peugeot 306 Maxi, Nissan Sunny GTi's and a Vauxhall Corsa kit car. Rising British rally star George Lepley has driven an ex-works Peugeot 205 GTi, and a Belgian competitor his brand new Peugeot 208 R2. 

We have also had an array of brand new Teg Sport designed and built Skodaru Fabia's. The concept involves a current Skoda R5 body shell and the running gear from a Subaru WRC.

Plan your route

The extensive viewing areas give spectators the opportunity to get closer to the action!

With central viewing area between the two stages, a fence-line viewing along both stage one and two allowing spectators to view more of the route. The routes themselves also accomodate a great viewing experience.

Please note that the Rally Stage viewing areas may be muddy underfoot so wear appropriate footwear. 


One of the pre-event highlights of any major event such as The RAC Rally was always the chance to see the cars up close as they attended scrutineering.

At Reis Race Retro you can relive that experience by attending our live scrutineering bay on the Friday from 10am and will feature iconic cars ranging from historic Minis and Escorts, through the Group A and F2 era, WRC, the latest R5 machinery and of course the fabulous Group B cars.

Get involved

There are opportunities for competitors with their own vehicles to take part in the Live Rally Stage and for marshalls, both novice and experienced.
