Volunteer marshals are the power behind UK motorsport. Recognisable from their orange overalls or marshals’ tabards, they’re vital to the safe and effective running of events all over the country.
Marshals’ training days are an important component of motorsport. Run by the BMMC they providing opportunities for individuals to develop their own skills and knowledge in all disciplines and activities, as well as obtaining the relevant signatures to support upgrade applications. BMMC deliver a wide range of training; Basic Marshalling, Incident Theory, Incident Handling/Practical, Fire Theory and Fire Practical, First Marshal on Scene (also incorporating basic First Aid), Communications, Flagging, Report Writing, Assessment, Leadership, Mentoring, Specialist, Speed, Karting, Rallying.
The Women’s Motor Racing Associates Club regularly donate to British Motorsports Marshals Club – in March 2019 funds donated contributed to the purchase of BMMC Training Equipment
Training can be delivered informally using ‘hands on / on the job’ approach, with individuals learning from a mix of instruction, doing, advice, mentoring and coaching from experienced fellow marshals, whilst on duty at an event.
