British Motorsport Marshals Club training at Oulton Park
Wednesday 25th February 2015
On March the 7th / 8th March 2015 at Oulton Park in Cheshire, the British Motorsport Marshal’s Club are holding their annual Training Days event for all North West marshals.
This gives the opportunity for existing marshals to gain those all important training signatures while newcomers, who will get closer to the action by joining the ranks of those in orange, have a special session dedicated to them.
Also attending this year will be Daphne McKinley Edwards from the Sean Edwards Foundation, who are now working closely with the BMMC. The foundation was established by Daphne after her son professional racing driver Sean Edwards was tragically killed at a little known circuit in eastern Australia, as his death may have been avoided had more staunch safety procedures been followed.
With the support of major governing bodies and partners, the foundation aims to implement intiatives that educate drivers about safety within their sport. Motor racing is dangerous, while the quest for better safety standards in terms of technology and procedure goes on, the big factor remains the same as it has for a century: the human behind the wheel.
