Marshalling can be one of the most rewarding ways to get involved with motor sport up close, and at the VSCC we rely on a huge number of volunteer marshals to help us make our events happen.
If you do not have an eligible car of your own to compete with then marshalling is the next best way to be closely involved in the Club’s activities. The VSCC is proud to boast a dedicated core of marshals, many of whom volunteer for duties at several events each year, making it one of the most social aspects within the Club.
Duties vary from event to event and with a wide variety of jobs there is something for most ages and abilities.
As with all motor sport, the extensive VSCC calendar of events could not happen without the hard work and dedication of its volunteer marshals. They are not paid, although each marshal who “signs on” does receive a sum to cover lunch expenses at our Race and Speed events while Marshals’ Draws take place at all Speed, Trials and Driving Tests, the winner receiving a bottle of champagne.
The highlight of the Marshals’ year with the VSCC is undoubtedly the annual Marshals’ and Volunteers' Dinner where those volunteers who have attended the most events are invited for a three course meal by way of thanks for their efforts over the year – this is also where the Marshals Awards are given.
