ACU to improve the training of Motocross Marshals
Thursday October 15, 2015 at 9:45pm
Following a lot of recent media attention regarding the standard of flag marshals at Motocross events in the UK, which was again highlighted at the Weston Beach Race last weekend. The ACU has already started to undertake steps to improve the Marshalling at ACU motocross events in the future.
Over the winter and leading into the start of next season the ACU Motocross Committee will be dedicating both time and resources to improving the standards. This will include introducing specialised training seminars, including incident footage to assist Marshals with assessing the level of severity of an incident while trackside and also to help improve the Marshals own safety.
In the future it is planned that Marshals under the ACU will be certificated. ACU Motocross Committee member Chris Warren said “We have some excellent marshals out there, but we also have some that need further training and understandings of the role and the importance of their duties. I have gathered a lot of information and experience throughout my duties across the world championships and I am in the process of putting together a training seminar for all marshals who are as dedicated as us to improving what we do with the yellow flag."
