I understand that not every one is available for every meeting, or in a position to travel to all venues, but no matter how many, or how few events you are able to volunteer for, you will be made most welcome by the NG family.
2014 MARSHAL TRAINING
In June, 2013 we held a very successful Marshal Training day at Mallory Park. This ran in parallel to the race weekend. It is hoped to run a similar event during 2014. Please ensure you indicate on the availability form your last training date. All new Marshals and those who are 3 years or more out of training, will be notified if/when a date/venue is known.
NEW MARSHALS NEEDED
As NG Roadracing grows, the need for more Marshals increases. Many of us started our Marshalling careers by being introduced by a friend already marshalling. So I ask you to look around and think if there are any folk you could introduce to the sport. They will be sure to thank you for it, once they too discover that marshalling is what weekends were invented for.
If you would like to be involved, please download and complete the AVAILABILITY FORM and return to me ASAP
Ensure your details are written clearly, especially your post code & email address where available
As usual, your passes will then be sent to you a week or so prior to the date of each event you have volunteered for. Please keep this letter safe as it contains all of our dates. Contact me during the season with any changes to your availability. I look forward to seeing you track side soon If you would like further information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
How Do I Become A Road Race Marshal?
IF YOU'VE EVER BEEN TO A ROAD RACE MEETING OR SEEN ONE ON TV YOU WILL HAVE SEEN THE MARSHALS, EITHER REMOVING FALLEN BIKES AND RIDERS OR GIVING FLAG SIGNALS TO THOSE WHO ARE RACING.
WHO ARE THEY? - All Marshals have one thing in common, their interest in motorcycle racing, and they all want to be more involved than just spectating. Apart from this shared interest they can and do come from all walks of life, all ages over 18, and of course both sexes.
HOW MUCH TIME DO THEY GIVE? - A Marshal is required to be on duty for the whole of practice and racing. They also attend a training day each year.
ADVANTAGES OF BEING A MARSHAL
· Working with like-minded people. Shared interest.
· Close involvement with the action.
· Free admission to meetings.
· Satisfaction of doing a job critical to making racing safer.
Marshals are vital. Race meetings cannot take place without them .
HOW DO I BECOME A MARSHAL, AND WHAT WILL BE EXPECTED OF ME? - Organisers of race meetings are always happy to welcome and train new Marshals, most people start Marshalling with organisations such as ours that are local to where they live, and if they wish, may go on to also Marshal at top British National and International events. It is completely up to the individual as to how many meetings a year they attend. The only commitment required is that they turn up to those meetings for which they have volunteered.
