    Race Marshalls

    Seen as this is a car enthusiasts forum and most of us being petrol heads for want of a better term, I was just wondering if anyone on ASN is a qualified race marshall within motorsport?

    It's something I am considering doing in my spare time and wouldn't mind having a chat with someone who already does it or if anyone has any good information/advice.

    Thanks in advance, Shaun.

    I worked with one who was based at Silverstone,it is completely on a volunteer basis and you pay for most of your own gear.

    Speak with some of them. I was talking to a marshal at mallory park and he was saying he's been doing it for years after he stopped racing.
    Word!!!

    My A3/Martys Golf would smash that, and this guys £7000 GT9743 supercharged love machine.

    Was this bought about due to DC on the BBC1 explaining that they are looking for marshalls?

    Yeah I thought it would be on a voluntary basis but i wouldn't mind getting involved with something like this and donating some of my spare time to help out.

    Thanks mate.

    No it wasn't from a BBC campaign, the idea just popped into my head after watching the last round of BTCC and thought it may be something i would like to do in my spare time.

    No worries.

    I think they said there was a courses happening in the next week actually - should be some more information on that link. Let us know how you get on though mate- this will be something I'll be looking into next year as I have a couple of circuits near me and wouldn't mind getting up close and personal to the track and lend a hand.

    Big John enjoyed doing it and I think he still does it now even though he is retired,he had a pic of him helping Schumacher after he came off,our gaffer noticed he was wearing works gloves at the time
    Sandra and Arrkon like this.
