Marshal Incentive Scheme Draw, July 2nd
With the first draw for the Motorsport Ireland (MI) Marshal Incentive Scheme taking place next month, all registered marshals are reminded to return their event record cards. The first prize draw will take place at the Competitions Advisory Committee (CAC) meeting on Tuesday, July 2nd at MI Headquarters in Dawson St, Dublin 2.
Four lucky winners will each receive €2,000 towards a trip to an international motorsport event of their choice with an approved travel provider. Terms and conditions apply*.
All marshals eligible to participate will be included in randomly selected draws which will take place at the July, September and November CAC meetings. One prize will be drawn in July, another in September, and the final two prizes will be awarded in the November draw.
In order to avail of the award scheme, a marshal must attend an official MI Marshal Training Course. Upon completion of the course, the successful candidates will be asked to fill out an application form which is submitted to MI, who in turn will issue them with a marshal’s licence and an event record card.
Please note your training record card is important as it is the official verification document that proves a marshal has volunteered at the five events required for eligibility into one of the draws. There is no limit to the number of entries you can make as you will be issued a new card each time training is completed.
To ensure fairness for everyone, random checks will be carried out to ensure training records are accurate and that all marshals have signed on. We wish to thank all our volunteers and wish them the best for the remainder of 2019.
Marshal Training in Letterkenny, June 13th
The next MI Marshal Training will be held on Thursday, June 13th in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny. Registration is at 7.30pm with training commencing at 7.45pm sharp.
Experienced marshals, new marshals, and those wishing to become eligible for the Marshal Incentive Scheme are encouraged to attend this training.
Please note the definition of a “Marshal” as agreed for FIA grant funding is “someone who works voluntarily on a Motorsport Ireland permitted event but is not named in the event regulations, safety plan or programme as an official.” This therefore includes volunteer timekeepers and volunteer communication personnel in the incentive scheme. All those wishing to avail of the scheme must attend the Motorsport Ireland marshals training and apply for a marshal’s licence.
For any clubs wishing to organise separate marshal training for their members, please contact the MI office on 01 677 5628 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
