Riponian Rally – 9 February 2020 – Cropton stage

From John Newlove:

We have been asked to run a 9 mile stage in Cropton twice on the 2020 Riponian on the 9th February.

Please let me know if you can help.

And more (an email from John to those who marshalled on the Cropton stage on the Riponian in 2019)

I am sending this email to everyone who helped marshal the Cropton Stage on last year’s Riponian Rally who I have not been in contact with.

Apologies if you get this request more than once

Well we are doing it again in 2020 on Sunday 9th February. I know it sounds a long way off but it has a habit of creeping up on us.

The stage is running twice but in the reverse direction to last year.

No details re times etc yet

I would be very grateful for everyone’s help in 2020

Jim Clark Rally – 8/9 November 2019

No doubt some of you will have seen this

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 (  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   Non-accredited marshals are still very welcome – you will be buddied with experienced registered colleagues.

For more information contact our Chief Marshal, Neville Simmons ( / 07889141828), Garry Headridge, Communication Officer ( / 07780602480) or Colin Smith, Deputy Clerk of the Course ( / 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’
