the Agbo Rally held at Weston Park over the weekend of 17/18 March 2018 Some of the marshalling team from WMPMC gave assistance to Owen Motor Club, with this. The Agbo is a single venue rally event that is held in the grounds of Weston Park near Wolverhampton.
We had agreed some weeks ago to help on this event, firstly to give support on Friday before the actual Rally started on Saturday. As there is an awful lot of setting up to do on such an event, including, preparing spectator areas, service facilities for the competitors, using rolls of tape to mark out prohibited areas, putting arrows to indicate the route of the special stages, straw bales on chicanes etc.
So set up day was quite intense, competitors were also arriving for their scrutineering, time to have a quick look at some of the very nicely prepared competition cars. So lots going on, we met up with other marshals we had not seen for some years.
The day turned out rather sunny, so where was this so-called weather front 'Beast from the East'
Saturday the event ran for the historic class of competitors, the weather was much colder. Heavy snowfall throughout Saturday night and early hours of Sunday, the organisers decided for safety reasons cancelled the event.
It was almost impossible for marshals, competitors etc to get to Weston Park especially for the early signing on time of 6.0 am.
Competition success for West Mids!
