    Safety at the WRC Rally of New Zealand: lighting system explained!

    Let's take a minute to talk about Safety. This year's WRC Cars are now Hybrid (petrol & electric). This is something very new to the sport & a very exciting change to the way the rally is done, however, there is some inherent risk to touching these vehicles. Each of the WRC Cars has a lighting system that indicates when it is safe to touch it, or when it is not. It's a simple system that we can all follow.

    • Green Light = Safe to Approach,
    • RED light or NO light on display = Keep AWAY

    Look for the green light

    Spectator Safety on Course

    To Identify one of these cars you simply need to look for the Door Sticker with the letters HY, this will let you know this car is one of the New Hybrid vehicles, and to use extra caution when you approach it.

    This is particularly important in the event of a rollover, touching a car that has crashed could have serious consequences, ONLY touch if the GREEN lights are showing. If a car has crashed and you hear an alarm sound you MUST check the lights before you approach. The high voltage could cause electrocution, or have other serious impacts on your life.

    • Green Light = Safe to Approach
    • RED light or NO light on display = Keep AWAY
