Training Volunteering

Interested in supporting the development of motorsport volunteers?

Are you interested in helping with the development of motorsport marshals and officials in Scotland?

The Scottish Association of Motor Sports Clubs is the Regional Association for Motorsport UK in Scotland. It is the largest Regional Association, covering over 30,000 square miles and bringing together Motor Clubs from across the whole of Scotland. Our Regional Training Team are involved in delivering a wide variety of training, both online and in person, across a wide range of disciplines, including race, rally, speed, recovery, medical, rescue, and many more.


If you would be interested in supporting your fellow motorsport volunteers and would like to find out more about becoming a licenced trainer, we’d like to hear from you.

Motorsport UK Trainers are volunteers and are responsible for the delivery of approved training material at training events. Their expertise might also be called upon in the development of new training material on behalf of Motorsport UK.

All Motorsport UK Trainers are required to attend a two-day residential “Train the Trainer” course where they are required to demonstrate their instructional ability. In addition, guidance will be given on effective training methods and skills.

Trainers are also required to undergo suitability checks (DBS, PVG or AccessNI) as part of the licence process.

Admin Support

We’re also looking for someone with good admin skills and experience in Excel to support our Regional Training Coordinator.

As with all motorsport officials, this is a voluntary position. You don’t need to be a licenced trainer for this role, but if you are interested in progressing along that route, we will certainly support you.

Jon is our 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.
