This year’s instalment of Castle Combe Circuit’s Marshal Training Days – held across two weekends in March – were some of the most popular to date.
These day-long courses aim to inform and train those who are interested in taking up one of the most important jobs in motorsport: becoming part of the volunteer ‘Orange Army’ and keeping racers safe from the side of the track.
With higher demand than previous years, organisers decided to run not one, but two days for 2020, held on both 8th and 15th March and attracting record attendees in the process.
The training days come ahead of another action-packed schedule of both racing and other track-related car and bike action at the Wiltshire venue – each of which requires a team of dedicated marshals to ensure safety and smooth running throughout.
“It was fantastic to welcome so many new and familiar faces to our Marshal Training Days,” Richard Beard, Castle Combe Circuit’s Chief Marshal, commented. “It’s particularly reassuring that so many are still passionate enough to get involved even during the uncertainty of the current Coronavirus outbreak.”
