An inquiry at Edinburgh Sheriff Court into three deaths at the Jim Clark Rally has seen official documents that revealed where the victims were standing was "highly dangerous".
A fatal accident inquiry into the deaths heard that set-up plans for the Jim Clark Rally near Coldstream in the Scottish Borders had said the area around where the accident happened should be "kept clear".
Colin Gracey, a spectator who witnessed the crash, says he saw a rally "warning" car stopping and talking to the group, who moved backwards into the field. He added as soon as the car left, the people moved back to where they had been.
Iain Provan, 64, Elizabeth Allan, 63, and Len Stern, 71, lost their lives at the Jim Clark Rally near Coldstream in the Scottish Borders in 2014.
The death of spectator Joy Robson, 51, at the Snowman Rally near Inverness in 2013, is also being looked into.

The 2017 Jim Clark Rally has already been cancelled, because the Motor Sports Association has refused to grant a license for the event.
They say it would be inappropriate given the on-going enquiry into deaths at the 2014 rally.
The Chairman of the Scottish Rally Championship has said that the cancellation of the Jim Clark Rally will have a significant impact on businesses in Kelso.
The rally, which was due to run on Sunday 4th June, provides a major boost to local businesses in the hospitality sector.
However, organisers made the decision to cancel the event due to insufficient entries.
Championship chairman Dave Robson said every effort was made to assist organisers with making sure the event would run, but that offers of financial help were declined.
The Scottish Rally Championship say they offered a loan to the organisers of the Jim Clark Rally, but that it was turned down.Read the full story ›
