    Weʼve raised £620 to Support the Thruxton Motor Racing Marshals Fund

    Reading, UK
    Funded on Thursday, 1st August 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Marshals enable the safe and efficient operation of motorsports events and without marshals, there wouldn’t be motor sport. From the pits and paddock to track-side and behind the scenes, marshals allow motor sport meetings to run smoothly and this is all done on a volunteer basis. We would like to give something back and are competing in the 2019 Screwball Rally. Please help us to reach out target by supporting us.

    Hello- We are a group of Motor Racing Fan's, That's two male's and two female's. All of us are TOTALLY RACE CRAZY, spending many a weekend or just race day trackside no matter were or what the weather you'll find us there. From Brandshatch to KnockHill and all in between, for countless of years we have seen race after race, winner after winner, crash after crash, and countless men and woman in orange.

    Which in turn mean's we have all seen a well organised team of Volunteer Marshals.

    They are the first to respond to any incident which unfolds on track, from a spin off, to a major incident, In order to carry out such a coordinated response is down to the traning they recieve, most marshals will take there traning at there local track, Ours being Truxton which is well known for being the fastest track. Most marshals stay with their local track where others move from track to track.

    The training they recieve is wide and variable, from croud control and safety, to fire and crashes not forgetting flags and communication. Then there is the off track marshals those involved with the pit and grid. So right to the track marshals those who respond first, to the start - finish marshals they all do their part to make sure there is a smooth safe race. Almost every marshal is an unpaid volunteer, these men and woman give there time to help and run the race's. From those who do track days to the Very High End of race meeting's, each and every marshal is vital on any track, with out the marshals there would be no race to watch. Making training a very key part of it all.

    Which is why we hope to raise fund's for Truxton Race Track Marshal's Training. In order to raise fund's we have entered the 2019 ScrewBall Rally. The rally is around Europe in a cheap car and a lot of luck! :) ' Which is lucky for us as it all happens after Knockhill and before Silverstone so no MISSING the BTCC for us then'.:)

    We will post pictures of the car we are doing for the rally in from day one until the very last on the boat back home.

    We do plan on sponsoring parts of the car out to anybody who wishes to put there business upon the car.

    Please bare in mind that the front of the car has already been sponsored out by our own first sponsor, The BTCC Driver. (ROB COLLARD) Which should give you all a clue on the theme of the car, so keep an eye out for the post.

    Now we will thank you all for taking the time to read this appeal to raise fund's for a cause that is very close to us, So help us keep Motor Racing Alive, be it Four Wheels or Two

    . Knowing both Drivers and Spectators are all in safe hands.

    Once again thank you all, from Martyn, Jeff, Teresa and Lucy


    Thid is the car for the screwball rally 2019 BMW 530D. This is the first sneak peak of what it looks like at this moment in time, Now its tme to get busy :)
