By Car

If you are coming by car, you can either park in one of the town centre car parks and then use the FREE bus service from the bus station to reach the rally itself, or you can park directly at the Barleylands Farm Park rally site.

Basildon is in Essex and is easily accessed via the A13 to the south and A127 to the north of town. Both roads have good connections with the M25 to the West and the A130 to the East. The town centre is well signposted from either the A13 or A127. The Eastgate shopping centre, which is right next door to the bus station, has free parking on Sundays - their postcode for Sat Nav users is SS14 1EB.

Barleylands Farm Park is very close to the A127 at its junction with the A176 and has brown signs leading the way from the A127 junction, so if you are heading specifically for the static rally site you are best off arriving via the A127. For those using Sat Navís, the postcode for Barleylands is CM11 2UD. Parking at Barleylands Farm Park is free.
