FIA World Rally

Service Park Nolia

The Service Park is very much the heart of the rally, where the teams prepare their cars ahead of the various stages. This year, there’s free admission to the Service Park all weekend! This makes it the ideal place to follow the races and get an insight into the work behind the scenes. You can also enjoy the rally festivities.

During servicing, you get an insight into how the world’s best rally teams work. Umeå Service Park opens to the public on Thursday 9 February, and it’s a great time to visit. That’s because Thursday is Shakedown day! Each car can drive the Håkmark stage four times, and the teams will be frantically fine-tuning their cars to ensure the optimum performance.

Meet the Crews

At Umeå Service Park Nolia, there will be three opportunities to Meet the Crews, including a presentation of who everyone is and what they do.The day’s top three drivers will also be there to talk about their day and how they feel. Thursday at 12:30, Friday at 20:15 and Saturday at 19:30.

Servicing twice a day

Spectators can come along and see the teams’ workshops and how they work. The teams service their vehicles twice a day: 30 minutes at lunch time and 1 hour in the evening. You can then follow the thrilling race action on the big screen.

Food Court and merch

It’s a winter festival, so we obviously want to keep our guests well fed and watered. So of course there’s a Food Court with flavours from Västerbotten province and around the world. There’s also the WRC shop with official merch and souvenirs from Rally Sweden, WRC and the various teams.

The Support Arena

Experience the teams and the rally close up at the Support Arena. Test drive the rally cars in a driving simulator, enjoy good food and beverage. The Support Arena opens at 9 on Thursday–Sunday.
