‘The MSA has accepted the recommendation from the Scottish Safety Review Group that, in future, all rally marshals should be registered (i.e. accredited or licensed) and receive training within a set timescale. This recommendation applies to both new and existing marshals. The review also recommended arrangements for trainee marshals (i.e. those who have not yet received their training) including a buddying scheme.’

Marshals and Radio Marshals Training 

Knockhill 19 January 2014



Another good turnout for a training day at Knockhill, featuring indoor sessions for marshals and radio marshals and senior officials, followed after lunch by fire-fighting practice for all.


Two marshals fight a car fire with dry powder and foam extingsuishers

Working in pairs, one with a dry powder extinguisher to knock down the flames with a chemical reaction,and one with foam to cool the metal and smother the fire


Marshals close in and make sure the fire is out.

Approach with the wind at your back, stay out of the smoke. 


The day finished with a very impressive demonstration by an SMMC Saltire Rescue crew, cutting a car apart to extract a casualty. 





Marshals and Radio Marshals Training 

Knockhill 20 January 2013

Over 50 registered for the marshals/radio marshals training day at Knockhill, but the organisers chickened out of running the practice stage, just because of a little snow. 

Instead they played indoors with Scuba's table-top Little Rally Driver kit - which is a good way to demonstrate stage setup of arrival, start, in-stage junctions and flying finish and stop controls, with all the correct arrows and boards.

The trainees did venture outside for a look at the safety features on a stage rally car, with special emphasis on electrical cut-outs, extinguishers, warning triangle and SOS/OK boards,
