Marshals required: Jim Clark Rally – 8/9 November 2019

It is now less than seven weeks until the roads of Berwickshire will once again echo to the sound of rally cars at speed.

To make the event happen we need your help.

It is now less than seven weeks until the roads of Berwickshire will once again echo to the sound of rally cars at speed.

To make the event happen we need your help.

There are still a large number of marshalling opportunities across the event – the stages (two on Friday afternoon / evening and four, all run twice, on Saturday), the start / finish in the Market Square, Duns and the Service Area on the edge of the town all need to be covered.

Whether you are an in-stage spectator marshal, specialise in timing or are a Motorsport UK Licenced Radio Marshal, we need you all! To allow the planning to move forward we need to know that sufficient marshals will be coming to the event.

If you are available to assist, and have not already done so, can you please register as soon as possible on Rally Stage Team (www.rallystageteam.co.uk). This system is not widely used by events in Scotland but is being used by ‘the Clark’ to record all marshal details into the one system to assist in the planning and allocation of duties. Details held on the system will also be used for a text messaging system we plan to trial so that marshals can be kept up to date with the status of the event. If you are unsure of how to use RST, or would prefer not to use it, please contact Craig Fisher, our Chief Marshal – contact details below.

Every volunteer will play a very valuable role in the safe and smooth running of the event. As well as a warm welcome, marshals will receive a gift as a thank you.

If you are not already an accredited marshal there is still time to get registered at www.motorsportuk.org/Marshals/Online-rally-marshals-training. Non-accredited marshals are still very welcome – you will be buddied with experienced registered colleagues.

For more information contact:

No calls after 9pm please.

We appreciate there are multiple demands on your time in November but your support in making sure this Jim Clark Rally makes a successful return to the calendar will be very much appreciated. As John Cleland said at a recent Rally Marshal Training Day, “Marshals, without them there would be no motorsport”.

There are already 115 cars looking to line up in the Market Square, Duns on Friday 8 November. There are still a large number of marshalling opportunities across the event.

Wow! Not even a week since entries opened and there are already 115 cars looking to line up in the Market Square, Duns on Friday 8 November for the short run out to Abbey St Bathans for the first of eleven special stages and then back to Langton which is run twice. It’s looking like a cracker!

Thanks to all of you that have already volunteered to assist with the event. Without you, there will be no rally. It’s as simple as that.

There are still a large number of marshalling opportunities across the event – the stages (two on Friday, afternoon / evening (one run twice) and four, all run twice, on Saturday), the start / finish, and the Service Area near Berwickshire High School all need to be covered.

Whether you are an in-stage spectator marshal, specialise in timing or are a Motorsport UK Licenced Radio Marshal, we need you all.

If you are available to assist, and have not already done so, can you please register as soon as possible.
