Motorsport UK annual training

From John Newlove:

Thought this might be of interest. We usually do our training through ANCC but not heard anything from them, as the club is a member of EMAMC it is open to our members

Firstly, a very Happy New Year we hope to see Motorsport filling our calendars very soon.

As has become usual we will be holding Motorsport training 30th & 31st January, unfortunately it will be by Zoom this year due to Covid-19 restrictions, however our trainers have been working hard to make sure the training programs we have are interesting and informative, its free to log on and join in.

This year we are delivering four courses to give you the best opportunity to learn within your own home, with breaks factored in for convenience and of course we will be able to answer any questions on the day as usual.

We are offering the following courses.

  1. New to Motorsport Marshalling course this is a full day (09:30 > 15:30) and is for marshals moving from accredited status to marshal, it covers all the basics needed to marshal and gives a fantastic grounding to anyone new to marshalling.
  2. Timing for marshals, this course covers the new timing process with beams and lights, how competitors deal with time cards and how the time control marshals now operate, this is a full day (09:30 > 15:30).
  3. Deputy stage commander / Stage safety officer, this is the steppingstone course for senior stage marshals wanting to increase their knowledge to assist stage commanders and take on senior stage roles.  The course includes, stage checking, incident report writing and many useful insights into these two very senior roles. Ideal for anyone who is aiming to reach stage commander grade, this is a full day (09:30 > 15:30).
  4. Competitor first on scene, very useful skills to take away, we will run this course 3 times during the day, please chose a time suitable for you, taking around an hour and 15 minutes. Due to Covid-19 there will be less marshals in stage and you as a competitor may be first on scene, do you know what to do? We will give you safe basic information to assist you and your fellow competitors, also we will include an overview of the new timing process as not everyone has been involved in timecard completion and time control processes yet.

Use this link to register for Saturday training :

Use this link to register for Sunday training :

The training programs will be repeated over two days giving you the opportunity to choose a day/time to suit you, new to radio has not been included as there are no new radio registered in 2020 and we aim for more practical training mid-year.

To assist training, we are planning mid-year practical training when hopefully we are again meet up and motorsport has resumed and put our skills into practice.

Kind regards

Riponian Rally 2021 – cancelled

From John Newlove:

Apparently the message below has appeared on Facebook. For some reason they don’t seem to want to tell me directly that the 2021 event has been cancelled.

The Riponian Organising Team, faced with no further clarification about access to the Yorkshire forests in February, coupled with uncertainty of what the future holds for COVID-19 restrictions after the Christmas ‘freedom of movement’ have decided that the only sensible thing to do would be cancel the event in February.

Additionally with there being no prospect of access to the forests between March and the end of July, which would then take us into clashes with events planning to use the same forests, unfortunately the only option was to have no Riponian in 2021. We plan to not waste the work the team has put in so far and aim to go again in February 2021.

Harold Palin Memorial Stages – Fulbeck Airfield 4th October 2020

From John Newlove:

Please respond to Simon if you can hep



From: Chief Marshal <>
Subject: Harold Palin Memorial Stages – Fulbeck Airfield 4th October 2020

Hello Marshals,

As a previous supporter of Eastwood and District Motor Club events, I am contacting you to request in-stage marshal help for the Harold Palin Memorial stages at Fulbeck on Sunday 4th October.

I understand that some of you may not be comfortable yet in attending events and that’s fine and some of you are desperate to get out and enjoy a bit of motorsport!

The event will be run differently to previous years, being shorter, but with multiple laps and obviously less contact with crews and officials face to face. The rally will start at 10am and have 6 stages (so a late start and early finish – happy days!).

We will be running with a reduced staffing level to previous events – first come, first served I’m afraid.

All signing on will need to be done electronically prior to the event. No one will be allowed to enter the venue unless they have completed the pre-event sign on as we have to make sure we know who is on site as part of the governments Covid-19 ‘track and trace’ scheme and we won’t have any paperwork on site.

Please could you let me know either way if you are available or not for the event and if you are could you also let me know your MSA number so I can make a start on the ‘electronic’ paperwork!

If you have any questions just ask and I’ll be happy to help.

Dear Marshal,

I hope you are well in these strange times. I am writing to you to ask for assistance on a new event – the Clubman Motorsport Melbourne Time Trial on Saturday the 29th of August. Promoted by Trackrod Motor Club, the event is planned to cover up to 40 miles in 10 stages at Melbourne Airfield. All stages will be single-lapped and any profits from the event will be invested in the venue for when rallies resume in 2021.

The Time Trial will be dual permit, competitors can choose to have just a driver or a driver and navigator. There will be a maximum of 60 cars and there will be a host of changes to accommodate the Covid-19 requirements. I have attached to this email 2 MSUK documents regarding Covid19 for your information.
