Five BARC marshal training days confirmed for early 2019

The British Automobile Racing Club can confirm that it will run a total of five marshal training days prior to the 2019 motorsport season roaring into life.

Pembrey, Croft and Thruxton, all BARC venues, as well as the infamous Chateau Impney will provide the backdrop to the training days between the end of January and early March.

Every event organised and run by the BARC needs marshals and all marshals, whatever they are doing, are contributing to the success and smooth running of the meeting.

With training provided to cover a wide range of topics such as fire safety to pit lane operation and teamwork; marshal training covers a wide variety of key attributes in preparing those heading trackside for the forthcoming season.
