On August 25th Bank Holiday Sunday, the Dinsdale Contracts AST Signs Pendragon Stages

On August 25th Bank Holiday Sunday, the Dinsdale Contracts AST Signs Pendragon Stages takes place at Warcop Military Ranges off the A66 near Brough, Cumbria. This is a non-spectator venue, so no annoying people ignoring your requests! I am the Stage Commander for the event with Karen Spencer as my Deputy. The event format is 4 pairs of stages, with each stage run individually rather than concurrently. So two stages then a change, then two stages etc. Due to the layout of the venue, most locations will see the cars at least twice per stage. The first stage is due to go live at 0815 so sign-on will be around 0630, and we hope to be finished by 1730. We anticipate a quality entry as normal. I'm looking for marshals of all disciplines - instage, timing and radio. If you are able to help then please contact me by replying to this or telephone me on 07795 253563 (I do drive for a living so please leave a message if I don't answer and I will ring you back). I'm sure I don't need to say the next bit, but just to cover all bases if you can, please can you scan or photograph your Marshals Registration Card or Certificate of Accreditation and send it with your reply. If you can't, then please supply your 2019 Marshal Registration number. If you've not done the On-line Accreditation then that's not a problem as long as we're aware and can then buddy you up. However we would advise you to do the Accreditation, it takes around 45 minutes and can be accesed here. www.motorsportuk.org/Marshals/Online-rally-marshals-training Thanks for your time and I hope to hear from you soon. Cheers Dave Brodie – Stage Commander Davebrodie1@google.com Karen Spencer – Deputy Stage Commander karen.spencer@bmsc.co.uk

Vale Of York Rally Stages 8th September 2019

As many of you may know a lot of investment has been put into Melbourne Airfield by the three clubs that run events on this single venue. Two events have now run successfully and some further improvements are still being made. Lindholme MSC are running the Vale of York Stages, the third event, on 8th September 2019. As in the past I would be grateful for any offers to marshal covering radio, Start and Stop line crews and, just as importantly, in stage marshals. We cannot run without your help. Please can you scan or photograph your Marshals Registration Card or Certificate of Accreditation and send it with your reply. If you can't, then please supply your 2019 Marshal Registration number. If you've not done the On-line Accreditation then that's not a problem as long as we're aware and can then buddy you up. However we would advise you to do the Accreditation, it takes around 45 minutes and can be accessed here. www.motorsportuk.org/Marshals/Online-rally-marshals-training It is our intention to run 8 stages. Signing on will be around 06:45. There is a slight change to the marshals ‘goodies’ this year as we will be providing a breakfast voucher for each marshal who signs on, these will be valid for a bacon roll and drink at the catering facilities that will be on site. There will also be the usual marshals prize draw. If you are able to help out this year can you please let me know at elmsr52@gmail.com. When contacting me give details of your preferred role and, if radio, your call sign. Also can radio crews please let me know if they are single or double manned as this will help greatly with our planning. Karen Spencer, Clerk of Course karen.spencer@bmsc.co.uk

3rd 6th October 2019 Wales Rally GB

By now you will have probably seen the official route announcement for Wales Rally GB 2019. https://www.walesrallygb.com/innovations-power-wales-rally…/ Buccaneer Motor Sports Club is proud to be able to confirm that we will be book-ending the event again, as we did in 2017. On the morning of Thursday 3rd October, Karen Spencer starts the proceedings by commanding the Shakedown stage at Gwydir Forest. At the other end of the event on Sunday 6th October, Jon Binns will be commanding the Power Stage at Brenig once again. Event staffing will be via the Rally Stage Team (RST) online database system as usual. (www.rallystageteam.co.uk). For all roles other than radio, please register via RST in the normal way. However for these stages and a few others that fill very quickly, the event is trying a new approach for radio crews. If you would like to register as a radio operator on either/both stages, please contact the relevant Stage Commander. We very much hope that you will be able to join us for what promises to be an epic championship battle to the end of the year.

21st 25th November 2019 Roger Albert Clark

There is something rather special about the sound of a perfectly tuned Escort or Lancia Stratos in full flight through a Kielder Forest stage in the dark, volunteering to marshal with Buccaneer Motor Sports Club on this year’s RAC Rally in November will not give you one chance to experience it, but two. I've been asked to be Stage Commander on the clubs stage for this year’s event on Saturday 23rd November for the 13-mile Clintburn and 10 mile Pundershaw stages (Clintburn runs one way and then after a small change Pundershaw runs the other). Sign-on will be at around 1300 to 1400 (OS Sheet 87, 682779) with the first car due into Clintburn at 1550 and Pundershaw 2115, the stage finish time will be around 2330, please note these are draft times and are yet to be confirmed. I'm looking for marshals of all disciplines - in-stage, timing and radio. If you're available and would like to volunteer, please do get in touch - reply to this email or ring me on 07802509444. As a reminder marshals will ideally be accredited, but it's not a problem if not as we can allocate accordingly. If you've not yet completed the accreditation, which will allow you to marshal unaccompanied, details can be found at www.motorsportuk.org/Marshals/Online-rally-marshals-training If you can volunteer please would you send me a picture of your Motorsport UK registration card when you reply as this will help with stage allocation and also if you have a preferred duty. A confirmed email address and mobile phone would also be great. Hope to hear from you soon. Many thanks Jim Maguire Stage Commander - jim_maguire@btinternet.com Jon Binns – Deputy Stage Commander jon,binns@buccaneermsc.co.uk Karen Spencer – Safety Officer karen.spencer@bmsc.co.uk
