Rally Marshals

Around 600 officials signed on last year and helped make the 2015 rally a great success. Many comments have been received thanking the marshals and also commenting on their professional attitude.

Thanks again to all who signed on this year and hopefully we will see you next year.

Marshals Required for 2016 Event

If you're not competing and want to get a closer view of the action then why not Register as a Rally Marshal.

All Marshals are eligible for the superb end of rally prize draw. Marshals are required Friday afternoon/evening for scrutineering and all day Saturday for the rally itself. Previous marshalling experience is not required.

Guide to Marshalling
Marshalling is the term given to the job done by people on the ground who operate rally controls such as starts and finishes as well as controlling spectators on stages to ensure the stage is safe to run. Marshals are often responsible for a particular section of stage and often work under the supervision of a sector official. It is the Marshal's job to look out for the safety of the spectators and to maintain the stage furniture at all times for the safety of the competitors.

Equipment Needed
Warm clothing is essential, a good waterproof jacket, waterproof trousers plus appropriate footwear (metal toe capped type is recommended) with thermal socks (in winter). Gloves are also advisable for both warmth and protection.

Contact
Please contact our Joint Chief Marshals to Register:
