Firle Beacon is committed to accessibility

At Firle Beacon, we are committed to ensuring that our Website is accessible to the widest possible range of visitors.

By this, we have identified that people with disablities can find certain Websites hard to view correctly due to the way that they are designed and built, and we have therefore acted accordingly to create an online presence that is as accessible as possible.

We have designed and coded the pages on this site to comply with W3C HTML and CSS guidelines to ensure that pages render correctly on users’ browser software, including those making use of assistive technology such as screen readers (which read the page contents aloud to partially-sighted users)

Using this site

Text size

This site has been designed using relative font sizes – you can use your browser to enlarge or reduce the size of text as required. In most instances, this is done in your browser’s “View” menu, where you can alter the “Text Size” option to suit your needs. Most browsers also have a keyboard shortcut to carry this out.

Links

All links on this site are clearly designated and we have striven to make sure that they make sense, especially if they were taken out of context. We have avoided use of terms such as “click here” as these could potentially be misleading without an accurate description of what page or file the link points to.

Furthermore, all links make use of use alternative text to describe their destination both visually, and audibly in the case of screen reader software.

Additionally, you can use your Tab key to navigate from link to link on each page.

Images

All images featured on this site have alternative descriptive text associated with them as an alt attribute. This will be read back to partially-sighted users by their screen reader software.

Page structure

All pages on this site has been designed to separate “form from content” as effectively as possible using the latest W3C standards.

Page sections are marked up clearly using defined headings (h1, h2 etc.) to demarcate important content.

Rally Paddock

The largest of our three classes will celebrate 70 years of worldwide rally sport, including cars that have competed in such legendary events as Monte Carlo, East African Safari, Thousand Lakes and Britain’s own RAC Rally.

Under the patronage of Henry Gage, a committee of members of the International Rally Drivers Club will choose a selection of cars from modern-day World Rally Cars, through the omnipresent Subaru & Mitsubishi years, to the early days of the ‘Flying Finns’ in Mini Cooper, Saab and Escort - with particular attention on our two home-grown World Champions: Colin McRae and Richard Burns.

The Rally Paddock will invoke the sights and ambiance of a genuine ‘rally service area’. Meanwhile the over 2-mile rally stage demonstration course, starting at the main gates, will use estate roads then exit the park via through the village and along the chalk road before ending with a fantastic climb up to Firle Beacon. Truly a race to the Beacon!

Supercar Paddock

This paddock will be set against the sweeping vista that is Firle Estate, with the very best of modern supercars displayed, including alternative power models.

Not only will these vehicles be on display, but they will also be demonstrated over a standing quarter-mile sprint course, utilising the Estate's main driveway, four times a day, on both days.
