Ever thought about marshalling at the TT? Well, now’s your chance – because the TTMA has just announced it’s on the hunt for new people to get involved and help make the racing happen on the little island in the middle of the Irish Sea.
Speaking about the announcement, Jane Corlett, director of the TT Marshals Association, said: “Whether it’s your first time visiting the TT, or you’ve been following the racing for decades, you’ll be made to feel very welcome. And, if you’ve never marshalled anywhere before? You can rest assured you’ll be looked after by the Chief Sector Marshal and teamed up with an experienced marshal to learn the ropes. There are opportunities around the course to suit all interests, backgrounds and levels of experience. You also don’t need to do every qualifying and race session, but everyone you can do really does help. You’ll gain a new set of skills for free as well as join a community that often turns into lifelong friends.”

Still interested? The first step is to sign on for sessions via the TTMA website. Once registered, there are two online training modules to complete for first-timers. The modules are quick and easy to complete and can now be accessed on a mobile device. Of course, those who have already marshalled at the 2022 Isle of Man TT Races or the 2022 Manx Grand Prix do not need to complete the training again and can simply sign on for the available days.
In addition to the two online training modules, the TTMA also offers an Incident Management Course (IMC) for marshals that have undergone a minimum of three sessions on the TT course. The day-long course is purpose-built to provide TT marshals with the chance to gain more in-depth knowledge on the use of equipment as well as the handling procedures for breakdowns and incidents.
