    Good question!

    We never went in too early. Earliest was 3-4 hours and there were already workers in place. I have no idea what time road closures take place. Do keep us posted because I would seriously reconsider spectating if that were the case. Thanks!

    National field doesn't look as bad as I was expecting, some interesting variety in cars:

    It will be interesting to compare the AP4s to the R5s.

    Looking forward to it, flying in Wednesday next week. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether shakedown is worth attending etc?

    You'd have to get incredibly early (like 3am or something). Even then, the marshals could come across you and ask you to move on. They're over the top.

    When I worked on WRC events the road closure was normally 3hrs in advance of the rally, but that was a couple of years ago now. And yeah as long as the people weren't on the road you couldn't do anything about them unless they were in a dangerous spot. Suddenly feeling less excited if Australia is that pedantic about spectating! I will try my luck though and see what happens!

    True its difficult to leave spectator zones. But there are many places to walk to beyond and even to drive close by. And if you are friendly to marshalls and in position 1 hour before it was fine last years. Good luck.

    I won't be there this year. Struggling a bit with my health. Most of my team will be there with other teams though so will still have all the news coming in.

    Do you think Craig & Stephane are in jeprody for next year? I remember some time ago I saw on this forum that Breen was scheduled to do 11 rounds this year and 9 rounds this year while Lefebvre will do half the champ. and will concentrate on the R5 program, can anyone deny or confirm?
    If in doubt, flat out!
