UNOFFICIAL Spectator Guide – 50th DETH Rally Thessaloniki 16 & 17 Sep 2017 – Route Maps & Timetable/Schedule

The Street & Circuit unofficial spectator guide to the 50th running of the DETH Rally – Information in Greek here and official website of the DETH Rally

Motorsport is dangerous for spectators and participants. Always be aware of your surroundings, you are responsible for your own safety.

Rally runs on the 16th and 17th of September 2017. Amazing scenery to get to the stages and on the stages. Stage 1 and Stage 6 are my personal favourites.

The roads used in the stages close around 2 hours before the stage starts. If you want to drive into the stage to spectate I would recommend getting to your location 2 hours before the start of the stage. Just to be on the safe side.

Safety Advice

Park cars off the road completely, ie in side roads, laybys. If you park on the outside of a corner, park the car well away from the road

Do not spectate on the outside of corners.

If you do stand on the outside of a corner, be prepared to run, **you are taking your life into your own hands**. A general rule when spectating any form of motorsport, not something specific to the DETH Rally.

If YOU PARK IN THE STAGE – Wait for the course car before LEAVING the stage after the last competitor, THe COURSE CAR will be the last car to pass through the stage. Do not be tempted to leave after the last competitor, wait for the course car before entering the stage. 

If you are in doubt about anything, contact the AOTH the organisers directly http://www.aoth.gr/contact/site-contacts/aoth.html – This is an UNOFFICIAL guide only, we are NOT responsible for your safety in any way. Follow the instructions at the event.
