Three events during March that are looking for marshals.

Details of three events looking for your support during March.


Border Counties Rally

Border Counties Rally, Saturday 16 March

Following the cancellation of the Coogie Urquhart Snowman Rally due to dangerously icy stages, the Border Counties will be the first round of the 2019 KNC Groundworks Scottish Rally Championship. This year the Border Counties starts in Jedburgh and heads south to stages in Keilder.

If you'd like to volunteer as a marshal, please contact:
Guy Wickham, Chief Marshal

Legend Fires North West Stages

Legend Fires North West Stages, Saturday 23 March

http://www.northweststages.co.uk

We invite you to join us on the legendary Legend Fires North West Stages on 23rd March 2019, the first rally to utilise the recent Closed Road legislation in the North West. The event will consist of multiple stages using four separate venues, all taking place on the Saturday.

Marshals of all disciplines are required, radio, timing and in stage, registration for the event is via Rally Stage Team – www.rallystageteam.co.uk. In 2017 over 700 officials and marshals signed on for the event and we hope and expect that 2019 will be equally well supported, consequently the event is using Rally Stage Team (RST) to collate registration information and support the allocation of roles and post numbers.

We appreciate that some of you may have already volunteered directly to individual stage commanders but please still complete the RST registration, making a note on the system of who you have already offered your support to. We will try to accommodate all specific requests for roles, positions and stages, but the earlier you register the easier it will be to match your requests.

We are strongly encouraging 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. Motorsport UK have recently announced a benefits package for all registered marshals and officials. Unregistered marshals are still very welcome to join us on the event but will need to be placed with buddy who will be a Motorsport UK registered marshal.

If you have any queries or need any help with the Motorsport UK registration or on-line training, please contact either of the Chief Marshals:

Dan Orme – 07792 475868
or Neville Simmons – 07889 141828
or email dangdo75@gmail.com

We look forward to seeing you on the event and thank you in advance for your much needed help.
