The FIA has launched a new set of Rally Safety Guidelines to improve safety at every level of the sport, whilst maintaining the action and spectacle loved by fans across the world.
The guidelines gather the best practice that is currently applied at World Rally Championship level in a format that can be used by rally organisers, including the CAMS Australian Rally Championship.
Close proximity to the cars on stage is all part of the thrilling spectator experience. A key aspect of the guidelines is to help promoters further increase spectator protection, and other safety suggestions.
Many of these initiatives are designed to be implemented with little to no cost, and the FIA will work with ASNs – such as CAMS – to ensure that is the case.
“Safety is the key for the sustainability of rallying in the future and one of the keys in safety is education – we see this around the world,” Yves Matton, FIA Rally Director, said.
“These guidelines will help educate all to have the best procedures and the best habits in rallying.”
