Mud, Marshals and Mission Motorsport

Mission Motorsport returned to Anglesey Circuit for it's fourth edition of the Race of Remembrance, and in the traditional style of the race, there was always something that cropped up that made it a little bit more challenging! Last year you may have remembered the six marshals and their two support crew who took on … Continue reading Mud, Marshals and Mission Motorsport

Marshal Journey: Track to Experienced

Following last year’s blog by Andrew Garrett on what it takes for a marshal to get from the Trainee grade to the Track grade, or White to Green as it is more commonly known, and since having recently upgraded myself in the marshalling world, I have decided to focus on what it takes to get … Continue reading Marshal Journey: Track to Experienced

When it’s not Motorsport, It’s Motorsport!

The title may be a confusing one, but you’ll have to bear with me, as every marshal knows that when they aren’t at the track they sometimes struggle for things to do to keep them occupied. It’s hard to really think that there was once a time before marshalling and that we used to occupy … Continue reading When it’s not Motorsport, It’s Motorsport!

Life’s a Beach! Where’s the Track?

In a previous blog, I wrote about how you sometimes need to take a short break away from marshalling and that it helps clear the mind and soul. Then once you've been away for a few weeks, months or even years you realise you miss it. You come back to it, meet up with all … Continue reading Life’s a Beach! Where’s the Track?

As I sit here listening to the sound of the rain hit my window, it got me thinking about two things. The first is the old saying in football; "Can they do it on a cold, wet, Tuesday night in Stoke," and how that can actually be applied to marshalling. You're probably thinking, what the hell … Continue reading Can You Do It on a Cold, Wet Weekend in Anglesey?

CarFest 2017 – Part 1 – Buckets and the Astronauts

The title of this blog is not a new band that is breaking onto the scene, it is in fact about the first day and a half of marshalling CarFest North. This is the first time that I've ever had to break an event down into two blogs purely because of the amount of things … Continue reading CarFest 2017 – Part 1 – Buckets and the Astronauts

We Got Ourselves a Convoy!

After discovering Donington Park’s “Convoy in the Park” meeting purely by accident, I decided it would be a great experience to marshal it and to expand my knowledge of marshalling to dealing with these beats. As well as the trucks, there would also be a very strong support package featuring Legends, Formula Fords, Mighty Minis, … Continue reading We Got Ourselves a Convoy!
