Spectator Guide for Copperhill Veterans Day Rally 11/11/23 11:11am

Welcome to our 2023 Copperhill Veterans Day Rally

We are thrilled to welcome you to Copperhill Industries. Our second round in a series of events to get us to a World.

As we build these series of events, saftey is our utmost important focus for the drivers, co-drivers, volunteers and spectators.

In rally spectators generally dont have the luxury of viewing the race from the comfort of bleachers - roughing it is part of the adventure! That is why we have designated spectating zones for this event. Every spectating zone will have marshals who allow you to enjoy the race while staying at a safe distance from the stage and the race cars.

 We urge everyone to stay in these designated areas while they do provide great views and they are safe zones for viewing the cars.

Rally Officials will be preform a saftey check on each stage before allowing competitors on that section of road. If they are not satisfied with the safety of your location, you will be required to move or the stage could be shut down.

 There will be one or more spectating areas on each stage and we have some limited shuttle service to move folks between specator areas so you will be able to park just once if preferred. You are allowed to drive yourself and park at each designated spectating area of course but parking is LIMITED. Be sure and note the times of the the start of each stage and your transit time between each spectating zone so you don’t miss any of the action.
 PLEASE RESPECT THE SAFETY MARSHALS and all our volunteers, they work long hours to help us put this event on safely.
