Spectator Guide

Rally in the 100 Acre Wood offers many opportunities for spectators to interact with the drivers & crew, watch the cars drive the stages, and see the crew make repairs to their cars in the service area. All spectator locations are free of charge and no tickets are needed.

Parking Information:
As always, parking is a problem on the forest’s narrow roads. Please do not double-park and block these roads. All cars must park on the same side of the road. We must keep one side of the road clear and open for traffic. This is used as an access route for emergency vehicles.

Please follow the marshal’s directions when parking your car and please respect the Spectator Control Marshals. They work very long hours to ensure your safety and viewing enjoyment.

Printed spectator maps will be available in the Salem & Steelville newspapers a few days before the rally. Or visit the Rally America information booth at the Parc Expose’ on Friday and Saturday to pick up your free copy of the spectator guide.

Volunteer Registration open

VOLUNTEER registration is now open. Please register at

Each year, we rely on around 300 volunteers to make this event possible. Those workers perform as course marshals, start/finish workers, spectator marshals, communications (ham radio) operators, medical professionals and sweep/recovery people. Please consider volunteering and getting a front row seat to the racing action!

If you can’t work both days, please considering working at least one. We actually usually need more help on Saturday than Friday. When you register, it will automatically check both days, just review that and make sure it reflects what day(s) you can help.

2017 Call for Volunteers

It’s Rally in the 100 Acre Wood time once again everyone! It is coming up soon on March 17th & 18th. As always, we will need hundreds of volunteers to make this event happen. The majority of volunteers are needed for Marshal positions (i.e. blocking roads/drives to ensure the course is safe), crowd control at spectator areas, and start/finish line workers.  These are things everyone can do, and get you some free 100aw Swag and front-row viewing of the race action! So, invite your friends and come help.

In addition, we always need a good number radio operators, those being licensed Ham radio operators. The ham radio net is the backbone the communications of our rally, and thus a vital component to its success.

We are always in need of qualified medical professionals to help ensure the safety of our volunteers, teams, and spectators. These positions are hard to fill, and we are always scrambling to ensure proper coverage. So, please, spread the word to anyone you know that is an EMT, paramedic, physician, nurse, etc.

While both days (Friday and Saturday) would be great, you don’t have to work both days. Just please make sure you specify the correct day(s) when you register in Rally Master Pro.

Those willing to help and volunteer to put on this great event, please register online in Rally Master Pro at

If you have any questions or concerns regarding volunteering for our event, you can address them to me at, and if I can’t answer them, I’ll get them to the proper people for an answer.
