Marion Quarrington received the "Marshal of the Year" award for her hard work as a marshal at motor racing events. The award was made at the Annual General Meeting of the South Midlands Region of the British Motor Racing Marshals Club held at the Saracens Head in Towcester on Saturday 25th October.

V8 members may well have seen Marion at the Club's final race meeting of the year held at Snetterton earlier this month where she was covering the pits - an area needing a great deal of care to ensure competitors do not speed in the pit lane and also to manage the complex "two lane" system, not to mention monitoring the pit crews crossing from the garages over the pit wall to signal to their driver. Occasionally Marion was seen with her speed gun checking speeds in the pit lane!

Marion volunteered some years ago to join the marshal team at an MG Car Club event at Silverstone and she thoroughly enjoyed the teamwork and could see the skills and knowledge of the marshals were impressive, not to mention the good cheer and friendly nature of the marshals who contribute a great deal to making Club racing a success for both competitors and spectators.
