A Trip Across the Border

As a marshal who has only ever marshalled at Oulton Park, I leapt at the chance to marshal at the Super Touring Car Festival at Knockhill on 3rd and 4th June 2017. Racing would come from the Super Touring Cars, Legends, Minis, Formula Fords, and Fiestas to name a few. With 24 races over the [...]

Welcome to the Green Hell

The last week of May saw me take a huge leap into the unknown. After almost nine years on the bank in the UK, I was about to marshal abroad for the first time. Not only that but at the most iconic and fearsome circuit in the world, the Nurburgring Nordschleife, and for a 24 [...]

A Celebratory Weekend with Friends
