Vol­un­teer thanks

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

After such an in­cred­i­ble week­end for Bri­tish sport it is easy to fo­cus on the stars, and de­servedly so.

Just like Andy Mur­ray at Wim­ble­don, Lewis Hamil­ton made his­tory on Sun­day, pro­duc­ing a mas­ter­class to join Nigel Mansell as a four-time Bri­tish Grand Prix win­ner.

How­ever, no ma­jor sport­ing suc­cess could be achieved with­out the un­seen sup­port of some very ded­i­cated and hard-work­ing vol­un­teers.

In the case of the Bri­tish Grand Prix at Sil­ver­stone, this means over 1,000 vol­un­teer mar­shals and of­fi­cials, rang­ing from in­ci­dent of­fi­cers and scru­ti­neers to med­i­cal teams and race ad­min­is­tra­tion. We be­lieve they are the best in the world, and we owe them all a debt of grat­i­tude.

Ev­ery year we hold a ran­dom prize draw among the grand prix mar­shals and we are very pleased to an­nounce that this year’s win­ner is Martin Rowe, an In­ci­dent Of­fi­cer at Hangar Straight. He wins passes to this year’s Wales Rally GB and tick­ets to the 2017 Bri­tish Grand Prix.

May we of­fer our sin­cere thanks to all those who gave up their time to de­liver another out­stand­ing Bri­tish Grand Prix. Rob Jones Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Mo­tor Sports As­so­ci­a­tion Ben Tay­lor Man­ag­ing Direc­tor In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Sports
