Let me take you back to the British Grand Prix with the crowds buzzing, the Mercedes duo battling each other, red Bulls seeing red, a record number of home Grand Prix wins for Lewis Hamilton and a safety car that allowed the quick thinking to gain on their rivals.
The British Touring Car Championship's annual meeting at Oulton Park took place over the weekend. The event attracts a huge crowd to the Cheshire circuit, and quite rightly so. The premier Motorsport in Britain should provide some exhilarating, fast pace racing. The weekend always brings a lot of promise, sadly that wasn't to be this … Continue reading Battered, Tattered, Crashed….Completed!
With the 2017 season just around the corner, it's just three days away in fact, it's important that all the marshals get themselves trained ready for the new season, whether it's to make sure they're up to date with the latest rules or just to refresh themselves. So what makes the training days not only … Continue reading Ladies and Gentlemen….Start Your Engines.
Now, I know in the last blog I mentioned that I would have been going up to Blackpool and marshalling a rally however, university studies cropped up and of course you do have to focus on which is more important.

So whilst we wait for the season, here is another countdown. It's number two on my … Continue reading Marshalling Moment #2 – A Race to Remember

This week's blog is about something equally as difficult, as there are … Continue reading #3 – Twice Around the Clock
With just five days to go before the big off, the training, weirdly, takes a backwards step as we started to dial down the sheer number of miles and hills we do in training.
