Hi Andy, and welcome to the nuthouse.

I, too, am hoping to do a little overseas marshalling next year, so would be interested in any details you can find. This is something I'm hoping to expand on my website.

I'm not sure how useful this is, but the Catalunya circuit has a marshalling application form. I don't remember if this is just for the GP or for other meetings. The form is in Spanish, but even I can understand most of it.

The URL is http://www.circuitcat.com/ingles/index.asp

Best of luck,

Paul.

Can I add a query to this - one of our lads is very interested in doing the GP at Monaco. Now I could be wrong, but I've always had the impression that this particular GP was a "closed shop". Can anyone clarify?

EP - having worked with French marshals who do Monaco, I'm afraid to say for on track marshalling it is a closed shop.
The memory's a bit vague, but I seem to remember that most of the chef de Postes (observers) are Monegasques with limited experience elsewhere and that their course teams are French. This was from a FFSA licensed observer, who did'nt hold them (the Cs de P) in high regard. There is a rigorous selection process involving various tests of fitness and an upper age limit - which I've forgotten now - mainly cos I'm well past it . Maybe try a wee search, I'm sure I've mentioned it before. aha - maximum age for new marshals - 30, automatic retirement at 50.

After Canada 2002 I was offered the chance to be a paddock marshal, apparently Serge who I'd been teamed up with all weekend and his mate the chief paddock marshal though I had enough French to get by - errm thanks guys but no thanks.

Nobody's mentioned contacts for the US GP yet, I only did it in 2000, but was still geting paperwork for this years event, sent it on to Observer, who'd thought about doing it see
this thread for the chief's email addy

Good grief - there'd be no marshals at all if that was the case in the UK!!

*ducks*

Andy I would contact Bruce ASAP if you want to do Melbourne next year as they have normally started to sort out the numbers. You should get on but you will need to suply them with letter from your club (assuming BMMC) to state your marshal skills. I will forward you a PM with the details of Indy contacts e-mails but the people Kathy Maleck and Pat Pierson. If you do go to Melbourne next year would recomend Malaysian Airways from Manchester or Singapore, will save you having to go via London.
I am sure you will love Melbourne as it is really laid back and a great party!

If they are willing to cover my airfare and willing to put me in a top hotel then I too would like to go.

Monaco a closed shop? Just like Silverstone (GP) used to be in my marshalling days!
