It is a requirement for a Marshal to attend at least one training event every two years to retain their grade of registration. But what actually constitutes a training event?

Following discussions with the Marshal’s Advisory Group and the Training Advisory Group, the following definition has been agreed upon:

  • Dedicated Marshals’ training, delivered by a licensed Motorsport UK Trainer(s), equating to 6 hours in total, of which a minimum of 2 hours must be face to face.

Jon is our Regional Training Coordinator, and also our Communications and Publicity Manager.
He went on his first rally at the age of 5 when his uncle was marshalling the Cropton Forest stage on the Lombard RAC Rally. That was in the days of Roger Clark and the all-conquering Escorts. The sounds and smells of rally cars have never lost their appeal. As an adult, working on an ambulance crew covering Cadwell Park in the mid 90s, he frequently encountered drivers who had come to an abrupt stop somewhat sooner than they had anticipated. Jon is a licensed rescue team member and Motorsport UK Trainer. He is also on Motorsport UK's Training Working Group and their Rescue and Recovery Working Group.
