As per the latest MSUK update, all events will be behind closed doors for the foreseeable future.

Agreed - and of course we don't even know if the event will run, yet - Motorsport UK said they were only issuing 50% of the number of permits that they did last year. I'd like to think that CSCC have a good enough rep to make them a strong contender, but I'm not booking anything yet


Of course, as discussed elsewhere, it may well be that marshals are in short supply so anyone could consider volunteering to marshal......

Please forgive my ignorance of you rules but are you allowed to do marshaling with a racer licence?

No reason why not. Technically, a marshal doesn't need to be registered with Motorsport UK (although the vast majority are).

Ha yes, news for me, thanks. One issue here is you'd have to teach the drivers to the different flags meaning! Fine with red, yellow, checkered but the others…*
More seriously I think we should send some drivers to marshal posts then they could, perhaps, understand many things they usually dont and have a different point of view.
Not sure but I think all our marshals are licensed. Mainly I find they are well trained.

You don't need a licence to marshal, and any newcomer is always welcome. Personally I spend the first couple of sessions with a trainee explaining why we do what we've done, flagging especially, and then pair them with an experienced marshal. I'll give them a chance to try flagging as well, as not all marshals want to do it - it is a skill.

But I won't share my winegums with them !

Gerard, for info - in UK when we get our race licence (after passing what is called an ARDS test - a brief paper test and a few laps round a circuit with an instructor to try to weed out any complete idiots) we have to have a yellow patch with a black X on it on the back of the car until we have completed six races without any transgressions - we have to get an upgrade card signed by the clerk of the course each race. Its basically a system to simultaneously warn other competitors that you are a novice, and to act as a sort of control on anyone trying too hard too soon. When I started, as I was sharing the car with my experienced mate, I had to have the novice cross, but he didn't, and as he refused to drive around with a cross on, he made up a folding cross, so that it was fastened closed when he was in and as I took over, he flipped the catch to unveil my "badge of shame" We celebrated when I got my sixth signature and could remove the device!



You can get one of your 6 upgrade signatures for volunteering as a marshal (I did this), and my view is that this should actually be mandatory - it certainly gives you a better insight into how important marshals are.

My deduction is that its more serious in your area than in our. When we go abroad, Spain for instance, its always a surprise to see the blue flag waved whatever is happening on the track. In France, you're supposed to give way and if you dont you could be blamed or have to make a drive through. Imagine what happens during a one make race…
Agree with you this should be mandatory.

I'd agree with that. My 'treat' for getting 6 signatures was the upgrade and going to Spa in 2004, after a few car related DNF's ( clutch and head gasket) I got 3 signatures over the August bank holiday weekend, 2 at Sillystone on Saturday then the 6th at the OP GC.

I think the yellow patch is a very good thing tho. As many here I feel marshaling a good thing for any driver. I did a lot, taught some marshals, drove the first french safety-car fully equipped with one marshal and one specialized doctor and still have many things to learn. Having been responsible for the relations between marshals and drivers brought a lot a fun too… Happy days.

In answer to my own question the following reply received today from Thruxton:
Good morning Richard,

"Many thanks for your email and I'm really sorry to say that unfortunately this race meeting will be behind closed doors, with no spectators.

If you already have a ticket for this then obviously we'll refund it in full, just let me know and I'll arrange it for you.

Once again I'm sorry but hopefully we'll see you here once some normality has resumed.

Best regards

Pat
