Marshals Training Camp
17 April 2024

Marshals Training Camp

With almost a month to go before the start of the “circuit events”, the entire Corps of Marshals is mobilising this weekend for the traditional Training Camp. Between learning the right gestures for the newcomers and general revisions for the more experienced, the 650 volunteers present are preparing with rigour and professionalism for the three upcoming events (Monaco E-Prix – 30 April / Grand Prix de Monaco Historique – 13-15 May / Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco – 26-29 May).

Founded 50 years ago by the will of the President of the Automobile Club de Monaco, Me Michel Boéri, the Marshals Training Course, offers to all the teams about 10 workshops (First Aid / Pre-video / Intervention / Post-video / Rail + Cric workshop / Electrical Risks / “Gazelle” timed course / Flags and signaling circuit / Fire).

A warm and studious atmosphere reigned under the mild spring sunshine offered for the occasion by the Principality of Monaco. Familiarising oneself with the new procedures and reworking what has been learned were the watchwords of the weekend. Founded 50 years ago by the President of the Automobile Club de Monaco, Me Michel Boéri, the Marshals Training Camp offers all the teams a couple of several workshops (First Aid / Pre-video / Intervention / Post-video / Rail + Jack Workshop / Electrical Risks / “Gazelle” timed course / Flags and signaling circuit / Fire).

The objective is to test the reflexes, physical and reasoning skills of each candidate. Accustomed each year to the famous fire intervention and extraction of the driver, the Commissaires were able to rework the right gestures to gain in efficiency and control, with the precious and efficient advice of the Monaco Fire Brigade.

This spectacular workshop, which has been part of the course programme for the past 15 years, underlines the importance of working on fire control and driver evacuation procedures in a very short time. In May, our Commissaires will in particular be subjected to the control of fire resulting from methanol, a fuel present in the petrol of certain Historic Grand Prix cars and invisible to the naked eye. The use of specific extinguishers is therefore required.

What’s new in 2022?

The Marshals have been given theoretical and practical training on the electrical risks involved with single-seaters in Formula 1 and Formula E. In order to get as close as possible to the conditions they will be confronted with during the race, LED lights have been installed on one of the test cars. The aim here is to reproduce the colour system (green/red/blue) used on the single-seaters, which informs the intervention personnel about the danger or otherwise of the electrical risk in the event of a problem.

Another novelty this year: the installation of a new plate, with the aim of simulating as well as possible an extraction of the car on track by the flat bottom.

Finally, it should be noted that the entire course is now computerised by a team of developers from the Corps of Marshals, in order to have a complete overview of each workshop (accounting and assessment of the volunteers on each post).

Handling the flags

On Sunday, the last highlight of the weekend was the flag handling under the Chapiteau de Fontvieille. In this workshop, different race scenarios are studied in order to work specifically on the application of the rules of signalling on the track. rules on the track.

In figures

In 2022, the Automobile Club de Monaco’s Corps of Marshals will mobilise nearly 650 people on each of the three circuit events. Among them, there will be 72 new candidates, 52 technical stewards and nearly a hundred people in charge of the management.

See you on April 12 for the General Meeting organised at the Espace Léo Ferré, then on the weekend of April 23 & 24 for the handover of equipment, one week before the 5th Monaco E-Prix (April 30).

A Working Day for the ACM Marshals before the 2022 Rallies

At just 2 months to go before the start of the 90th Monte Carlo Rally and the 24th Historic Monte Carlo Rally, the Organising Committee and the ACM Corps of Marshals were met this Sunday for a working day in preparation for the upcoming events.
The “C.R.I.C.” is a training for our volunteers with an objective to verify the application of the procedures and regulations which will be in place for the rallies in January.
The Marshals were thus put in real conditions on 3 Special Stages traced on the heights of the Principality of Monaco in order to carry out a life-size general rehearsal.
A necessary training to review the knowledge and skills of each participant.
This year in particular, the emphasis was on the COVID measures (no more physical contact between the Marshals and the crew)!
The FIA’s E-Safety Delegate was present for the occasion and informed the Stewards of the new standards, procedures and safety measures that will have to be put in place with the introduction of the brand new hybrid WRC cars that will start competing in the World Rally Championship in 2022.

The ACM Corps of Marshals in the spotlight

Once again this year, nominations of the highest caliber have been submitted and it has been difficult to choose from such a wide range of personalities, each demonstrating outstanding expertise in their field as well as an immeasurable commitment to motor sport. However, the FIA Volunteer and Officials Commission Awards Committee salutes the efforts of the entire Monaco’s Corps of Marshals and is delighted to announce that they have been named FIA Best Team of Officials Team of the Year.

Composed of more than 670 Marshals, the Corps ensure the safety and the smooth running of all the events organized by the ACM, both on circuit and on road. These commissaires are present at the events, with their passion and dedication, always voluntary in their commitment but professional in the execution of their missions, which now require in-depth knowledge of the regulations and perfect mastery of new techniques (computers, GPS, etc.). In this very special year, marked by an unprecedented international crisis, the Corps of Marshals has nevertheless managed to successfully carry out all its missions, thanks to the respect of an extremely strict health protocol, meeting all the recommendations of the FIA and the Monegasque and French health authorities.

Thus, in 2021, the Corps of Marshals has been successfully involved in the 5 events organized by the Automobile Club de Monaco:

– 89th Rallye Automobile Monte-Carlo;

– 4th Monaco E-Prix;

– 12th Monaco Historic Grand Prix;

– 78th Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix;

– 5th E-Rallye Monte-Carlo.

In addition to this, there were of course the various Circuit and Rally training courses which were essential to maintain and reinforce the skills of the teams. Despite these extremely restrictive conditions, the Corps of Marshals has managed to maintain the “Club” spirit that is its strength, bringing together people from different backgrounds driven by a common passion for motor sport. Through their self-sacrifice and efforts, these volunteers, who do not count their hours and who often work in difficult conditions, are an indispensable cog in the success of the various events organized by the Automobile Club de Monaco. The Corps of Marshals is a large family of passionate volunteers who, through their internationally recognized professionalism and efficiency, have led this institution to become a reference in its field…
