Listed below are those Neste Rally Finland special stages that can be accessed as easily as possible by spectators with reduced mobility.
Please keep in mind that each forest special stage is unique and conditions out on different stages vary a great deal – even though there are disabled parking symbols on almost every special stage in the Official Guide, there are big differences on how easy or difficult it is to get from the car parks to the spectator areas.
Thursday and Friday 1 - 2 August
The Harju city special stages driven in the heart of Jyväskylä are the most easily accessible special stages of the rally, and they have good spectator areas reserved close to the entrances marked with the Wheelchair Symbol. Also, on Friday the Äänekoski special stage P2 car park is located almost next to the actual stage, so the distance to the spectator area from the parking area reserved for persons with reduced mobility is not long.
Saturday 3 August
There are easy access roads from the Kakaristo special stage parking area P3 (and also P4) to the Kakaristo spectator area. On Saturday, access from the Pihlajakoski P1 car park (even though it has not been classified as an official disabled parking area) to the spectator area is for the most part along a public road, so it is also a very good option.
Sunday 4 August
The Ruuhimäki special stage finish zone is an easy access spectator area, even though you might have to leave your car a little further away. Ruuhimäki is driven twice, and the second of the two passes is the rally-ending Power Stage. In previous years, the atmosphere in the finish zone has been absolutely fantastic, so this is definitely a place worth heading to!
All the services and facilities out on the special stages are located close to the official spectator areas and are thus as easily accessible as possible.
Jyväskylä Paviljonki area
The Paviljonki Rally HQ and service park provide things to see, do and experience throughout the entire Neste Rally Finland.
Entry to the Paviljonki area
There is easy access into the Paviljonki area through either one of the official entrances. Additionally, pre-booked ticket holders with reduced mobility can enter the Rally HQ and service park straight through the staff access gate located at the end of the Uno Savolan katu street. If you are arriving to the Paviljonki area by car, there is reserved parking for persons with reduced mobility at the street level of the Jyväskylä Paviljonki multi-storey car park (entry to the car park is from the Uno Savolan katu street).
Paviljonki area, Rally HQ and service park
The Paviljonki area has been built in a way that all the different points of intertest are easily accessible and you can just enjoy the exciting rally atmosphere. Spread around the Jyväskylä Paviljonki main building are different food and drink services, exhibitor stands as well as outdoor activities and side events. The 2nd floor of the Paviljonki main building, where e.g. a restaurant and the Digital Motorsport Lounge are located, can be easily accessed with a lift.
New Rally Lounge
The Paviljonki WRC Square public area is located at street level, right next to the Paviljonki main building. You can follow the rally action live from a giant screen in a covered and spacious spectator stand via the WRC TV broadcasts. The café-restaurant is also licenced. The Rally Lounge provides other rally entertainment too, with all the exhibitors spread around the square plus music and interviews. The Rally Lounge welcomes guests from 10:00 onwards and closes at the same time as the service park does every night.Special stages.
