Marshaling is for anyone who is interested in and wants to be involved in motorsport. You don’t need any special skills or qualifications, just common sense and to be a motorsport enthusiast. For those wishing to become involved with motor sport – but not as a competitor, there can be no better introduction than as a marshal. Motorsport is one of the most exciting sports there is and you can be right at the heart of the action as a Marshal. You may be mustering cars for the next race at a circuit or checking competitors through a control on a rally. The list of jobs is long and varied – that’s why marshaling is never boring. To organise any Motorsport event requires a small army of volunteers, usually many more than the number of competitors.
Without Marshals, motorsports cannot happen. Marshals carry out a wide range of duties, all of which contribute to the overall efficiency and success of the event. Marshals, whatever they are doing, are serving a useful purpose and contributing to the success of the event and the smooth running of the organisation.
If you’re also just new to racing or an experienced fan, marshaling can enhance your understanding of the sport. It will give you the knowledge of how a race is run and increase your enjoyment of even watching a race on television.
