Marshalling is for anybody who is interested in and wants to be involved in motorsport. You don’t need any special skills or qualifications, just common sense and a reasonable sense of self-preservation.
The BRSCC has its own marshalling service upon which it relies heavily in order to complete its annual quota of race meetings throughout the year, along with the support of marshals from other clubs.
Each year, ahead of the forthcoming season, the centre organizes an (MSA-approved) training day, giving all marshals the chance to learn new skills, or brush up on their techniques. This wouldn’t be possible without the support of Snetterton circuit and its staff, along with Advent Motorsport , who, for several years have provided cars for use in the practical exercises.
In order to become a marshal, you will first of all need to contact either the Regional Centre Chief Marshal or Marshals Secretary , who coordinate the marshalling force. If your interest lies in other duties, e.g. timekeeping, scrutineering, race control, then they will be able to put you in contact with the right people.
Volunteers in Motorsport is also a great source of information and contacts for the would-be marshal or volunteer official.
As a marshal/volunteer official you can apply to become a Club Member of the BRSCC. In doing so, you will not only enjoy the benefits given to all Club Members; you are eligible for a discount scheme on your Club Membership subscription. In recognition of the work done by our marshalling force, you will receive a £1.00 voucher for each day you attend at a BRSCC organized race meeting. The maximum value which can be redeemed against your membership in any one year is 50% of the membership fee.
