Chief Marshall Required for 2016

7th December 2015

The Pre 65 Motocross Club is urgently looking for a volunteer willing to fill the role of Chief Marshal for our 2016 events.

No meeting can commence without a Chief Marshal. The primary roles of the position are to:
a) Ensure that all track marshals have a copy of the AMCA instruction to marshals and that all understand them prior to taking up their position.
b) To appoint and position the tracks marshals, including track crossing (if required), finish and the exit of the track.
c) Ensure that each track marshal is correctly positioned, protected and able to observe the portion of the circuit between their allocated point and that of the next marshalling point in the direction in which the riders are travelling.
d) Ensure that all track marshals have all flag necessary for their allocated position.

In addition to the above, the ability to assist with on-going track repairs throughout the day would be greatly appreciated, but is not necessarily a must. Any applicant must be aged between 18 and 85 years and cannot be a rider on the day. In return, you will receive payment (currently £20 per meeting) and lunch from the catering van. If you are willing to take up the challenge and get closer to the action, please email the Club Secretary (
