In more recent years, we did see more restrictions on road side parking. You need to be early as roads got closed much earlier recently too. This MAY have been just local to the places we visited.
For us parking on-stage and specatating alongside our campervan is favoured. So getting set early is not an issue. We either drive along the stage (just follow the stacks of barriers, bunting etc) and park up as soon as you spot a good location (there will be lots of choice). Or: go into a smaller village and park up for a short stroll to the stage.
If you have not experienced it before, it's a must do ! Plan ahead and enjoy it. Don't try to watch more than one stage section in a day unless you have checked that enough time is available to easily do it. Even with our extensive experience of doing just this on Rallying events in the 80s, we got caught out and missed a second viewing due to road closure. Worse near bigger towns.
