Cold but, Gold!

After a long off season, it was time to get out the orange overalls, the boots, the waterproofs and to dig out the notepad to get ready for the new season of marshalling. With plans to continue blogging over the winter sadly gone to tatters, I thought I better pick up the writing and pray … Continue reading Cold but, Gold!

A Farewell to a Fantastic 2017

Rock ‘n’ Roll Marshalling

Motorsport! Glitz, Glamour, that Rock and Roll lifestyle by the sea, on yachts, rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous. Champagne on tap, the most exotic locations at your finger tips. For everyone in Motorsport......even the marshals? After a bit of studying, especially at university for a module, it is clear why marshalling isn't as … Continue reading Rock ‘n’ Roll Marshalling
