Rally Marshalling 2015
West Midlands Police Motor Club's marshalling section has had a very busy and successful 2015, covering some 11 events, mainly special stage rallies, a mixture of forestry and sealed surface events including, Horbia, Severn Valley, Nicky Grist, Harry Flatters, Mewla, Cambrian, Rally Isle of Man, to name but a few. The marshals section attended the final rally of 2015 which was a regroup/service area in the centre of Newtown Wales, on the prestigious International Wales Rally G.B.
The most memorable event for 2015 has to be ‘Rally Isle of Man’ this event was perfect from start to finish, the team all worked tremendously hard and this was reflected by praise from the ‘Rally Isle of Man’ organisers. Planning for 2016 ‘Rally Isle of Man’ event is already well underway. It is our aim to increase the number of club members attending this event in 2016.
Mark Wakelam and Henry Adams had the pleasure and experience of a two day Classic Car tour around Mid Wales in Mark’s Ford Escort RS 2000 4x4; this was a very relaxed and enjoyable form of motorsport.
The marshal’s section of the motor club have for many years been involved in operating as rally timing crew at the ‘Flying finish and Stop, this is where times are given to the competitors at the end of rally special stage. We get involved with in stage marshalling duties, such as on ‘Rally Isle of Man’ the manning of service and regroup areas and more recently (D.S.O) Driving Standards Observers.
Competition success for West Mids!
