Marshal training

Posted on

Marshals attend the biggest events on the motorcycling calendar. Without marshals these high level races cannot run and that is why they are essential within the racing world. If you take on a marshalling role you could very well find yourself trackside at world motocross, MotoGP, World Superbikes, British Superbike or some straight forward club racing. You are guaranteed the best vantage points, you will be close to the action and get to meet the riders although they may not be feeling very talkative!

Being a marshal is a very responsible position and to make sure you know all you need to carry out your duties safely, the ACU Motorcycle Marshals Association is running a number of training days early this year.

The training course, which is completely free, will take you through different aspects of the job from fire training, flag theory and practical, medical training, to incident theory and practical. By the end of the day you will be competent in the basic skills needed to be a marshal ready to get out and help make motorcycle sport happen.

The ACU Motorcycle Marshals Association is delighted to announce the following dates and venues for marshal training days:

Sunday 8th February 2009 – Donington Park

Sunday 15th February 2009 – Lydden Hill

To book the above courses and set yourself up as a marshal for 2009 please contact Michelle Haynes on 01788 566405 or email [email protected]
