Training

The improvement of motor sport marshalling standards has been one of SMMC's main stated objectives since its inception in 1973.

From the beginning, the drive for improved marshalling standards was pursued through active on-event tutoring of novices by experienced marshalling members of SMMC.

In addition and for over 20 years SMMC has been involved in the organisation and running of formal training events for its members and other marshals.

The first two of a continuing series of major training events were held in 1984 - for rally marshals at a two-days event in the grounds of Blair Castle, Perthshire and for race marshals at Ingliston Circuit, Edinburgh. The Ingliston event was organised in conjunction with the Scottish Motor Racing Club.

Other major training events in the early years were for rally marshals in 1985, based in the Trossachs and for race marshals in 1990 at Knockhill Circuit, Fife.

Since then, race marshals training in Scotland has been organised annually in March by the Scottish Motor Racing Club, initially at Ingliston and now at Knockhill. Details of these yearly race marshals training sessions can be obtained from the SMRC website.

We have a programme of training events throughout the year, for marshals and officials in all motorsport disciplines - race, rally, sprint, hillclimb, etc - and of all levels of experience, from complete novice to guru level. The courses are all free, and run by qualified instructors licensed by the MSA.
