Marshalling is a great way to get involved in motorsport; marshals play a key role in the safety and smooth running of every event, and also get the closest view of the action! As well as our own events, FDMC members run and marshal entire stages on some other major events, up to national level, such as the Wales Rally GB. To find out more, see the Contact Us page.

Disabled Drivers

Many disabled people can still compete in motorsport. Each case is individually assesed by Motorsport UK, but it’s generally easier to obtain a licence for any discipline which involves cars competing singly, or at lower speeds.
