ACCREDITED MARSHAL SCHEME
WITH the roads becoming ever more dangerous there is a requirement to make Road Racing safer. As such around the country local police forces are requiring Accredited Marshals. Cambridgeshire do not require them at this stage (Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex do already) but we expect that will be the case in the not too far distant future.
AMS marshals are able to stop traffic at junctions/bends etc. to allow safe passage of the race. It is an essential part of keeping racing on the roads.
BC Eastern Region are already running course to get marshals accredited and it's going to be essential that our club have a number of 'Qualified' marshals in the near future. Would you be interested? Once qualified AMS marshals will be paid a small fee and expenses when they marshal events. AMS marshals will not marshal our club's race, but will be expected to do other events in the region too.
The next course will be held in Bury St Edmunds on 12th April. It is a half day course running from 10am until 2pm. There is a short online module to complete prior to the course and then a mixture of classroom and practical learning on the day.
