1st April - Oulton Park MSVR (British GT and F3 Cup etc)

Just a quick thanks for the marshalling at Oulton yesterday.

In particular I want to thank the three or four marshals (one woman and three men I think) on the outside of Deer's Leap who came to my rescue at about 4:30 when I spun having not seen the safety car boards in time (ooops, sorry). Their push-start was brilliant, and got me back in the race, and allowed me to recover some valuable points.

Very many thanks! I did clap and wave next time round, but they might not have been able to see that gesture.

I think every one of yesterday's marshals deserves a Ranulph Fiennes Special Award for bravery in the face of arctic conditions.

Being a mere weak spectator I went and hid in my car between races!

Absolutely. I suspect some of them will never feel their toes and fingers again.

I was going to add that we huddled around the burning Ginettas for warmth!

Seriously, I don't get up to Oulton a lot, but was very impressed by the guys & girls on Warwick Bridge / Lodge / Deer Leap this weekend, big shunts and two huge fires very well dealt with, a pleasure to watch the team in action from the flag point - and well done on getting cleared to allow a racing finish in GT race 2!

Worth watching the highlights for it all next week!

Having been directly opposite both fires (not sure whether that's good or bad fortune) may I offer a big thumbs up to the many guys and gals who were involved. The first looked big enough - what appeared to be a good oil fire going - but the second was ferocious and appeared to be being fed meaning every time it went out, it lit up again.

Very good work by everyone involved. I've seen a couple of online videos which don't do justice either to the seriousness of the fire or the excellent fire-fighting.

Shelagh,

Fortunately with the first race fire the driver reached back in and killed the electrics, this one however was too ablaze for that - driver (Colin White) had baled out very quickly after feeling the heat!

GT meeting @ Oulton

I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to the team at Shell for their support and encouragement on my 1st weekend as Observer. In particular thanks to Rob and Nigel.
My fingers have only just warmed up, but kept nimble by writing lots of reports.
See you all on Saturday!

All in a days work Tristan, glad we could help. It's always good if we can get someone back in the race. We were in the right place, thanks for spinning in front of us, saved too much running!!!! It was just three of us by the way.

Thanks to everyone at Deers Leap for a great weekend. Having seen the videos on YouTube that was some fire. Hope everyone is OK today (you know what I mean!!!).

Thanks to the folk at Lodge for filling the gaps when we sent some of our guys to get checked out at Med Centre.

See you at the weekend - are there any Ginettas racing, cos I will bring the crumpets if there are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brigette aka Mrs Bean.

Three of you! The mirrors aren't exactly great for counting how many pushers there are!!!! Little video of you doing your job brilliantly (not filmed by me) http://youtu.be/sylcC64w7b8

If I have to spin again, I'll try to make sure it is in front of you again

THANK YOU

Chef

It's really welcoming that drivers take the time to say thanks to us orange 'uns. I noticed a similar comment made by a FF driver who spun out at Donington recently.
Thanks for your comments, much appreciated.

They were posted on Facebook so I don't think they're viewable unless you know the person.

Hadn't seen the one Alan posted before, that's from the other side and does give a better impression of just how big the fire was and how determined it was to avoid being controlled! I've been asked the question elsewhere - this was significantly the biggest fire I've seen, not just for it's ferocity but because it appeared to being directly fed fuel under pressure to a seat of the fire that wasn't accessible through the bodywork. It was just like that moment at fire training when someone chucks in another bucket of fuel followed by a match. Every time it appeared to go out it kicked in again just as big as before. Whoever killed the electrics was a hero.
