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 [...]

Why Do We Go Back?

I was asked possibly the hardest question ever the other day when I was asked; "What sets Motorsport apart from other sports for me?" I dismissed the question at first because I thought it was unanswerable. Then giving it a little bit more thought I realised the question went a little bit deeper. I wasn't [...]

Under Starters Orders

May Bank Holiday over the past few years has become a regular event for me, and that's the Ty Croes Sprint. Once again organised by friends, I was asked to be part of a three man team to help with the running of startline. You're probably wondering what the difference is between a Sprint and [...]

I wasn't originally down to marshal last weekend, as rugby normally dictates my schedule until the rugby season has finished at the end [...]

Still tired from the weekend, I was running [...]

A Weekend Away at WEC

Easter weekend normally sees me in one of two locations; on a rugby pitch or at Oulton Park for the British GT's! This year, I pushed myself outside my comfort zone and headed to Silverstone for the World Endurance Championship's six hour race. As I was only able to travel down to the circuit on [...]
