Located at the finish line of the Hillclimb, the Top Paddock is an excellent spot for two very good reasons: 1. It overlooks both the track’s turnaround area, 2. It also overlooks the start of the Forest Rally Stage.
As the vehicles partake in the Hillclimb in batches, the drivers and riders have to get out of their cars and off their motorcycles whilst they wait for the rest of the vehicles in their batch to reach the finish line.
This makes the Top Paddock the ideal spot for a bit of banter with them, and provides a great opportunity for close-up photography and autograph-hunting. You'll also see a great deal of tyre-smoking fun and doughnuts up here.
