The British Motor Sports Training Trust (BMSTT) has funded an FIA Rally Extrication Trainer, for use at MSA Marshals and Rescue Training Days.

The trainer, complete with competition seats and belts, is transportable in a small van and is an excellent training aid for Marshals, Medics and Rescue crews. The trainer has been used at a number of events so far this year and has been extremely well received.

Bob Sheridan, MSA Race Rescue Instructor and Paramedic, said: "The MSA are to be congratulated on the development of this new Extrication Training Frame. It will allow Rescue and Extrication Teams the chance to broaden and built on both their individual and team skills."

This rally extrication trainer has enabled crews to practice in their teams and develop the relevant skills. Any enquiries should be directed to training@msauk.org.
