Training is tailored to the individual needs
Motorsport UK registered volunteer Marshals are required to attend regular training days in order to acquire and maintain their marshalling grades. Training is delivered using a modular approach tailored to the individual’s needs.
There are well over 100 Marshals’ training events delivered nationwide throughout the year.
Their high level of training means that Motorsport UK registered Marshals are held in high regard across the globe. Over 500 British Marshals regularly attend a wide range of overseas events each year – at the invitation of the organisers – to share their expertise.
Motorsport UK has a number of training modules available to aid the development of its Marshals. These modules are normally delivered by Motorsport UK Licensed Trainers either at large training sessions, Club evenings or if just a few individuals wish to get together.
If you or your club are interested in receiving Marshal training, please contact Motorsport UK via firstname.lastname@example.org or your Regional Association who will be able to offer you further guidance.
Progression through the marshalling ranks is managed by the Motorsport UK Marshal Grading Scheme.
The scheme has been designed to provide specific skills training to allow an individual to progress from cadet marshalling through to specialised marshalling roles in each discipline of the sport.
There are also grades for Race Marshals who work off-track in the pits, paddock, assembly area and race control, where event communications and administration are based.
Details of the grading schemes for the various branches of marshalling can be found HERE.
