A: Yes you certainly can, however, to save you time and money, booking in advance is altogether more convenient and offers better prices. See our tickets page which provides all the information you need to know about advance and on-the-door ticket prices!


Q: How do I book a Rally passenger ride?

A: Passenger rides are only available on the Saturday and Sunday of the show. These cannot be booked in advance and are available on a first come first served basis on the day. You will experience approximately two laps of the rally stage and the cost is £25.00. Simply head of the Rallying with Group B stand in Hall 1 at the show to book your slot.


Q: Where can I eat?

A: There are several food outlets all around the halls at the show serving delicious food (prices vary accordingly).


Q: What about if I've brought a packed lunch?

A: A common visitor complaint is that there's nowhere to sit and eat packed lunches in the halls. This is a tricky one because as much as we would like to, if we were to provide everyone a seat in the halls, there wouldn't be room for any cars! What people tend to forget is that, just outside all the halls, there is lots of freely available seating to use. There's no problem leaving the halls (you'll get your hand stamped on exit allowing you back in) for a while to eat your lunch!


Q: Is there accommodation near to the venue?

A: For help in finding accommodation in the area, please visit our 'Accommodation' page where HotelMap (our official accommodation provider) will be able to help find and book hotels near Stoneleigh Park at discounted rates - click here to visit the page.

To book accommodation at The Stoneleigh Park Lodge, located on the show ground, please visit their website.


Q: What parking is available on site?

A: We're pleased to offer over 3,000 free parking spaces, located a short walk from the halls at the show.

We also have a two-tiered level of VIP parking with spaces offered directly outside the entrance hall designated as Pole parking and the Grand Ring, located a maximum of a 5 minute walk from the halls designated as Podium parking. Should you wish to purchase VIP parking, you will need to book this in advance and will be issued with a hard copy-ticket ahead of the show which will need to be placed on the dashboard of your car in order to gain entry. VIP parking has limited availability, so it's advised to book your space as soon as possible, however they currently not on sale.

A specific car park has also been designated for disabled visitors who may use it free of charge subject to display of their blue disabled parking permits via the public car park.


Q: Is there a separate entrance for disabled visitors?

A: Disabled visitors can enter the site through Gate 1 and must have their disabled badge in order to gain access to designated disabled parking (disabled parking is subject to availability). Visit our Assisted Access page for more information.


Q: Is there access for caravans/motorhomes?

A: There is limited hardstanding for motorhomes as this would need to be prioritised for event parking. Please contact Stoneleigh Park Lodge directly to make bookings, telephone number: +44 (0)247 669 0123.
