Getting to the York Rally

How to reach the York Rally:

  • On foot or cycling:
    On foot or by bike, go to the Racecourse end of Knavesmire Road. The access has been remade since previous Rallies, and the entrance is now through the gates as seen on this Streetview image. Please follow signs and directions from marshalls.
  • By car (satnav to YO23 1EX):
    By car/motorhome/caravan, come to the entrance half way along Knavesmire Road (opposite the junction with Knavesmire Crescent). See it on Google Streetview. There’s plenty of room to swing in even with a big caravan. You’ll then be marshalled until you can move onto the site – please just follow directions. Parking is free (but there’ll be a donations bucket!)
  • Disabled parking:
    Please just show your blue badge to the marshalls on the gate, and you will be directed right up into the site to the disabled parking. The whole site is level and accessible, in marquees pitched on the grass of the Knavesmire. There are disabled loos on site.
