TT Volunteers

Don't just be a spectator, watch and help out. Marshals are posted all around the Mountain Circuit. They help keep the spectators safe and under control, they also keep the general public from walking or driving onto the course during racing. You do not need to be highly trained to be a marshal, just be alert and willing to help out (unexperienced marshals are never stationed alone). There are free training sessions during practice week to inform new marshals of their duties and equipment, it also gives a brush up for existing marshals. The races would not be able to take place without the marshals. They keep the course clear, show warning flags, and offer first response to injured riders.

Travelling Marshals
Each year eight men are chosen to serve as Travelling Marshals during the TT & MGP races. They are issued with a top performance motorcycle and are assigned to locations around the circuit. Their job is to marshal the course itself. When informed of an incident close to them, they ride out to provide first aid and other more specialised help until the helicopter arrives. When a Travelling Marshal arrives, he/she is in command of the incident and other marshals should follow his/her instructions.
