Andy started marshalling at Cadwell Park in early 90s, took a break, restarted 2004, again at Cadwell Park, then a friend talked him into doing a day at Harewood Speed Hillclimb the same year, he has only missed 3 meetings since.

Currently a graded Examining Speed Marshal, any spare weekends he can be found as a Scrutineer for MSUK at various race, sprint and rally meetings across the north and midlands.

The Orange Army

Being a part of the Orange Army is a great way to be involved in Motorsport. There will be an information and recruitment Gazebo in the Paddock Village, staffed by the local BMMC group it will be a great opportunity for you to get involved in Motorsport..

Anyone over the age of 11 can marshal in some form, usually 11 to 14 yr olds are given jobs that keep them safe from the competition cars racing.

14 to 16 are paddock/assembly marshals.

16 to 18 can be given trackside posts, but are usually kept back from any incidents due to possibility of injury etc, but once you’re 18 it’s all yours, progression is entirely at your wish, and some will stay in one sector all their marshalling life.
