if you can you should volunteer;
usually they put newbs with another person as route marshalls, you have to stand there and make sure no one accidently gets onto the course..
you get way closer to the action that the spectator spots..

Agreed, volunteering is by far the best way to get close to the action and rub elbows with the drivers and crews. If it's anything like the US rallies, they're always looking for course marshals etc. Roo and I used to work finish timing controls at ROTW Rally before it went the way of the dodo... nothing like sitting at the edge of a cliff having rally cars blast by you at full speed! The other byproduct is, you get to drive the rally stages with your car to get to your assignment! :biggrin:

It was fun driving to the event. I had to drive through a rather large icy muddy puddle. Someone (I think a WRX) lost his right front wheel well plastic AND rally armor mud flap going through it. The key is always the right line. He picked the wrong line.

My 21 month old daughter also liked it. Now I have to find another event. Soon.
