Marshals Required – Jim Clark Rally – 8/9 November 2019

It is now less than seven weeks until the roads of Berwickshire will once again echo to the sound of rally cars at speed.

To make the event happen we need your help.

There are still a large number of marshalling opportunities across the event – the stages (two on Friday afternoon / evening and four, all run twice, on Saturday), the start / finish in the Market Square, Duns and the Service Area on the edge of the town all need to be covered.

Whether you are an in-stage spectator marshal, specialise in timing or are a Motorsport UK Licenced Radio Marshal, we need you all!  To allow the planning to move forward we need to know that sufficient marshals will be coming to the event.

If you are available to assist, and have not already done so, can you please register as soon as possible on Rally Stage Team (www.rallystageteam.co.uk).  This system is not widely used by events in Scotland but is being used by ‘the Clark’ to record all marshal details into the one system to assist in the planning and allocation of duties.  Details held on the system will also be used for a text messaging system we plan to trial so that marshals can be kept up to date with the status of the event.  If you are unsure of how to use RST, or would prefer not to use it, please contact Neville Simmons, our Chief Marshal – contact details below.

Every volunteer will play a very valuable role in the safe and smooth running of the event.  As well as a warm welcome, marshals will receive a gift as a thank you.

If you are not already an accredited marshal there is still time to get registered at   www.motorsportuk.org/Marshals/Online-rally-marshals-training   Non-accredited marshals are still very welcome – you will be buddied with experienced registered colleagues.

For more information contact our Chief Marshal, Neville Simmons (Neville.simmons@live.co.uk / 07889141828), Garry Headridge, Communication Officer (garryheadridge79@btinternet.com / 07780602480) or Colin Smith, Deputy Clerk of the Course (Colin.cheviot@gmail.com / 07468 278887).  No calls after 9pm please.

We appreciate there are multiple demands on your time in November but your support in making sure this Jim Clark Rally makes a successful return to the calendar will be very much appreciated.  As John Cleland said at a recent Rally Marshal Training Day ‘Marshals, without them there would be no motorsport’

Marshal requests – Vale of York Stages (8 September 2019) and NHMC stage (Langdale) on Rally Yorkshire (28 September 2019)

From John Newlove:

As it’s a wet day thought I would catch up on some Motor Club items.

Is anyone available for the Vale of York stages on the 8th September  on Melbourne airfield although some of you might have contacted Lindholme direct.


I know it seems a long way off but I need to start thinking of the Langdale Stage on Rally Yorkshire

North Humberside are running Langdale once again, however this year it’s the first stage on Saturday morning 28th September That is SS2

Provisional timings show the first car at Langdale is 09:34 so provisionally latest signing on will be 07:45-ish and hopefully finished by around 11.30.

Thank you to those who have responded already.



Rally Yorkshire – NHMC Stage, SS2 – 28 September 2019

From NHMC’s Chief Marshal:

I have noticed my fellow stage commanders have already sent out requests even at this early stage for this year’s Rally Yorkshire.

So thought I had better join them.

North Humberside are running Langdale once again, however this year’s it’s the first stage on Saturday morning 28th September, that is SS2.

Provisional timings show the first car at Langdale is 09:34 so provisionally latest signing on will be 07:45 is and hopefully finished by around 11.30.

Although it will be tight it might be possible for people to come to us and then may be go to the last stage which is Dalby.

I know it’s rather early for a definite commitment but indications of who will be available would be useful.


Vale of York Stages Rally – 8 September 2019

Email received by NHMC’s Chief Marshal:

Regs for the rally are now available on the website:


I would normally send you the document itself, but I’m on holiday in Devon
where the Caravan Club site’s wi fi can’t cope with a group email with a
large file size attachment. It’s all the adverts which defeat it!

Entries are now open.

Thank you in advance for your involvement with the rally.

Kind regards
Len Fowkes
Secretary of the Meeting

Vale of York Stages – 8 September 2019

Email received by our Chief Marshal:

Can you circulate your marshals list please?

Richard Elms

As many of you may know a lot of investment has been put into Melbourne Airfield by the three clubs that run events on the venue.

Two events have now run successfully and some further improvements are still being made. Lindholme MSC are running the Vale of York Stages, the third event, on 8th September 2019.

As in the past I would be grateful for any offers to marshal covering radio, Start and Stop line crews and, just as importantly, in stage marshals. We cannot run without your help. We would prefer that the majority of marshals are registered with Motorsport UK however non-registered marshals will be made equally as welcome and will be paired up with registered marshals.

It is our intention to run 8 stages. Signing on will be in the usual location from around 06:45. There is a slight change to the marshals ‘goodies’ this year as we will be providing a breakfast voucher for each marshal who signs on, these will be valid for a bacon buttie and drink at the catering facilities that will be on site. There will also be the usual marshals prize draw.

If you are able to help out this year can you please let me know at elmsr52@gmail.com. When contacting me please let me have a scan or picture of your marshals registration card, details of your preferred role and, if radio, your callsign. Also can radio crew please let me know if they are single or double manned as this will help greatly with our planning.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Chief Marshal, Vale of York Stages
