At the heart of the 2024 ACM Training Camp

With just a few weeks to go before the start of the 2024 track events, the annual Training & Refresher Camp was held on 23 and 24 March at the “Chapiteau de Fontvieille” in Monaco.

Around 600 volunteers from the Corps of Marshals were mobilized for the weekend, including 44 new candidates. The aim of this Training Camp is to learn how to react to all the situations that Marshals may have to deal with during the on-track sessions this year. To do this, the volunteers (re)discovered the traditional workshops of this Training Camp, with a new feature in 2024. Here’s an overview of the Training:

First Aid: This workshop run by the Monegasque Red Cross, is essentially focused on stretcher-boarding, in support of the emergency services present on the circuit.

Pre-video: Alongside the practical exercises, this theoretical workshop aims to examine, on video, the risks that can be encountered on the circuit.

Pre-rail: This is the first practical experience on track. The aim here is to learn how to cross the rail to operate on the circuit, to pass on equipment and to handle jacks to move single-seaters.

The “Track Intervention” workshops: The first “Track Intervention” workshop consists of learning how to turn over a car, and how to use jacks. The new feature of this formation 2024 is the inclusion of a brand-new car, the CTC (Crash Training Car) for the second “Track Intervention” workshop. More realistic than ever, it’s an old single-seater that has been completely renovated by our teams of volunteers. The aim is to simulate any type of accident, such as the nose of the car crashing into a rail, or the front and rear axles coming apart. In addition, an integrated electrical system can be used to simulate liquid leaks or the release of smoke.

Post-video: As these workshops have been filmed and examined by observers, the Marshals can debrief and analyze their actions.

Electrical risks: The aim of this awareness-raising workshop is to explain the electrical risks associated with single-seater cars in Formula 1 and Formula E, and to provide information on how to behave.

“Gazelle” timed course: Considered a must-do event on the Training Camp, this is a sporting course with obstacles such as crossing a rail, a race with a fire extinguisher, or the evacuating of a gearbox.

Signaling: Another key part of the Training Camp, this enables volunteers to learn, differentiate and handle the different flags and to familiarize themselves with the signage used during the track sessions. Since 2023, this training has been carried out using electric go-karts simulating a race on a circuit. In order to reproduce real-life conditions as closely as possible, fictitious scenarios are studied to assess the responsiveness and the dynamism of the Marshals.

Fire: Under the expert guidance of the Principality’s Fire Brigade, the Marshals were able to practice dealing with flames, handling an extinguisher and evacuating an injured person, using an entirely flammable car.

At the end of this studious and convivial weekend, a general debriefing was carried out by the Command of the Corps of Marshals to validate the integration of the candidates.

 

Upcoming events:

The entire Corps of Marshals will be meeting on 16 April for the General Meeting, to receive the latest information and recommendations.

The handover of equipment and uniforms will take place on 19 and 20 April before the 3 track events:

  • The 7th Monaco E-Prix (April 27)
  • The 14th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique (10-12 May)
  • The 81st Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco (23-26 May)
