Bit late I know - What’s the situation regarding access to house/grounds for wheelchair users? We can’t fit a self-propelled wheelchair in the MX-5 so I’ll be providing the motive power for Mrs Roymondo’s wheelchair, which only has small wheels.
May be too late to help, but there’s a FAQ for the rally which gives brief information. I live near Ragley and from what I remember the house would be difficult. The main Ragley website doesn’t even mention accessibility, which I find extraordinary.
Marshals will direct you to the disabled parking area.
The site will provide some challenges to those with limited mobility - it is a mixture of level and inclined Grass as well as Tarmac path and level gravel surface, please seek assistance if required.
Bit late now but I googled the question and found this
Ignore my above post, it’s a different place altogether!

Thanks both for your replies. Sadly I didn’t get a chance to read them before we went! The parking bit went smoothly (disabled parking as directed by marshals gave hard-standing access to the site, so all good). Unfortunately the Rally site wasn’t quite so accessible (grass/gradient/gravel), and we didn’t even attempt the house itself, although we did manage to get around the back to see the gardens. Not a bad day out and picked up some useful/interesting snippets here and there.
Interesting conversation with another disabled member about wheelchairs, scooters and MX-5s, but still no real solution to what ought to be a fairly simple problem - a portable/foldable mobility scooter that fits in the boot of an MX-5. Of course, such a beast (if it existed) would doubtless have tiny wheels and next to no ground clearance…
The live music was pretty damn good though!
