Watch the best rally drivers in Australia battle it out
The National Capital Rally will be burning into town this weekend, with the best rally drivers in Australia coming to show their skills on Canberra's forest roads. There is opportunity to see them in action on the tracks at spectator vantage points, as well as seeing them race at Westside Acton Park, in the city.

FRIDAYS EVENTS: At 4pm on Friday afternoon it is the Ceremonial Start at Westside Acton Park, where kids can wave the cars and crews away, with refreshments and activities for all ages. Between 5:30pm - 8pm watch them race around the streets around Westside Acton Park, under the Commonwealth Ave bridge and returning back to the start. See the website for the race route and be part of the rally action on the night.

SATURDAYS EVENTS: During the day, watch the rally drivers tackle Kowen Forest and see them at spectator vantage points along the way. Between 2:30pm - 4pm they are back at Westside Acton Park and racing the lakeside route, the same route as Friday.

SUNDAYS EVENTS: During the day the drivers take on Paddy's River road, west of the city. Watch them from spectator points along the way and cheer on your favourites. Between 4pm - 5pm it is back to Westside Acton Park for the Podium Presentation and obligatory champagne spray!

* A pack of all spectator information will be available for download closer to the event.
