Update from Motorsport UK

Tuesday 03 August 2021

Motorsport UK is saddened to confirm the passing of Robert Foote following the accident at Brands Hatch last weekend during a BARC Club Car Championship event.

Robert was a regular marshal and scrutineer at motorsport venues across the south of England and he will be truly missed by the entire community.

It is humbling to see the tributes from across the sport, and a minute’s silence was also held at many events last weekend.

We are devastated by the loss of a member of our marshalling community, and the thoughts of everyone at Motorsport UK are with Robert’s family and friends at this difficult time. We will also continue to support those directly involved in the incident.

Motorsport UK would like to request that its member clubs observe a minute’s silence at a time convenient to their event schedules this weekend, as we come together to remember Robert and the invaluable contribution of all our volunteer marshals in making motorsport happen throughout the UK.
