New Training Events

7 September       Rally Marshals training with a focus on Closed Road events

to include Fire Training

location Melrose 

The last quarter of 2019 sees rallying in Scotland take a major step forward with the reintroduction of closed roads rallying – the Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally on 11 - 13 October and the Jim Clark Rally on 8-9 November.  The training day on Saturday 7th September has been added to the calendar to provide rally marshals with more of the knowledge required for this unique type of event.

Sessions will cover:
  • Unique attributes of closed road rallies
  • Handling difficult spectator conversations and conflict management
  • Fire and incident handling

The training is open to all marshals and officials irrelevant of whether you have offered your assistance on either, or both, of the closed roads events in Scotland this year.  Reference will be made to the Stage Rally Safety Requirements.

It is hoped that a external guest speaker will also give an insight into how third party services rely on the work of the rally marshal.

A light lunch will be provided along with tea and coffee in the morning and afternoon.

14 September     Cross Country Training, safe use of winches 

Location Uphall, nr Bathgate  

This training is aimed at anyone attending cross country events who may use their winches, whether for self-recovery, competition or supporting others.  It is not part of the training programme for licensed motorsport recovery operators.  This is a formal course based on industry standard material but designed to explain good practice and safety in a cross country scenario. Attendance at this event is limited in numbers both for your comfort and to ensure a good experience.
