The Eventsigns Woodpecker Stages Rally requires a small army of volunteer marshals to help the safe and efficient running of this year's event. If you think you can help, please read on...

Marshal's on any motorsport event are key to ensuring the safety of all of us involved in the sport and the Woodpecker Stages requires a significant number of marshals both on and off the stages to run the rally.

To volunteer, you must be a Motorsport UK accredited marshal although if you are not yet accredited, you are still able to become a marshal on the event as we can buddy you up with an experienced team member for the day.

We have roles on the stages, on the timing teams and other areas of the event and if you would like to get involved, please contact our Chief Marshal using the details below.
