Registration for Marshals of all disciplines is now open and you are invited to Berwickshire over the weekend of 8th & 9th November 2019 to be part of the team working together to deliver a fantastic Jim Clark Memorial Rally in 2019.

We are pleased to announce that registration for Marshals of all disciplines is now open.

You are invited to Berwickshire over the weekend of 8th & 9th November 2019 to be part of the team working together to deliver a fantastic Jim Clark Memorial Rally in 2019.

Using the new closed road legislation in Scotland the event will need a high number of:

  • In stage marshals
  • Radio marshals
  • Timing marshals

Every volunteer will play a very valuable role in the safe and smooth running of the event which offers two venues on Friday 8th November and four venues ran twice on Saturday 9th November, ensuring an action-packed event.

Marshals will also be required in the service area as well as staffing the ceremonial start, finish and regroup areas if you would prefer to be involved and experience marshalling from a slightly different perspective at the event.

Registered marshals are preferred, although there is still plenty of time to gain your registration for this year if you have not done so already. We will still accept non-accredited marshals, and they will be buddied with experienced registered colleagues.

We strongly encourage all marshals and radio crews, who haven’t already done so, to become a Motorsport UK accredited marshal by completing the simple registration and also carrying out the basic online training by following this link: www.motorsportuk.org/Marshals/Online-rally-marshals-training

All marshals and radio marshals must register through Rally Stage Team www.rallystageteam.co.uk. If you need further information please contact marshals@jimclarkrally.org or comms@jimclarkrally.org
