AGBO Stages Rally
Regrettably we have had to take the decision this year to exclude spectators from the service area for the duration of the event. Historically the small service area for a 75 car entry has been extremely overcrowded especially in the afternoons. For health & safety reasons and with guidance from MSUK ultimately the decision was taken to close off this area due to recent Covid 19 outbreaks.
Spectator access to the event in Weston Park (£10) per car will be via Blymhill Gate only on the A5, ample parking will be available from 7.00am.
Spectating will be restricted to the two viewing areas shown on the viewing area map, there will be no access to the service area as in previous years from the viewing zones.
Also, access to stage viewing areas from the service area location will be closed off.
No spectator access or parking will be available at the Park Main Gates (Shrewsbury Gate) this year. This Entrance / Exit is for competitors & service personnel only. An event time control will be situated in this area for most of the day, another reason we must keep this area clear.
It is acceptable to bring your dogs along should you wish; we just ask that they are kept on leads at all times in all areas. We are instructed by Weston Park Management & Motorsport UK to advise that the use of “Drones” by the spectating public for any photographic or filming purposes is NOT allowed anywhere within the grounds of the Weston Park estate.
Owen Motoring Club wish you all a very entertaining day.
