SAMSC Marshals Training – online training webinars:

There have been quite a few online training webinars throughout the year enjoyed by many. Thanks go to Rupert Hine, Jon Bolton and the rest of the SAMSC Marshals Training team for organising and hosting these very informative training sessions, and the training year is not finished yet; Visit the training portal web site which as well as being very informative is also very pretty.

Marshals update, 28th February 2021

Although the organisers are still not in a position to confirm the running of the rally, plans are still well underway, and continue to be ongoing for the Dunoon Presents The Argyll Rally 25th & 26th June 2021.   This year, the event will be a round of the Scottish Rally Championship, and it will also be included into the 2021 North of England Tarmacadam Rally Championship.

This year we move from the Forest onto the public highways of the Cowal Peninsular, hence the inclusion of both the Scottish Rally Championship and the North England Tarmacadam Rally Championship.

So far, Argyll Rally has had a good response to the call for Marshals & Radio Marshals, however we all know a rally can never have enough Marshals for the stages, so the registration process still continues.

The event starts on Friday evening with Stages 1 and 2 through Dunoon Town Centre, followed by a further 3 stages out on the roads.

For the Friday evening town stage Marshals would need to be in situ no later than 17:00 (approx.) with the remaining stages Friday night from 1800 onwards (approx.).

For the Saturday Stages marshals would be required be in situ by 0830 onwards. Saturday will consist of 4 stages run twice, so plenty off action to see throughout the day.

Service area will be at the Dunoon Stadium as normal.

Covid-19 Update

Rallies are not quite what they used to be for Competitors and officials alike, COVID-19 has had a major impact on how  we manage people on events. The organisers have appointed a COVID Officer for the event. A draft COVID Risk Assessment has been developed, and will take account of changing regulations as intimated by the Scottish Government and Motorsport UK.

We will issue copies of the Risk Assessment as close to the event date as possible so you receive the most up to date information. The aim of course is to keep our marshals, officials and competitors safe.


There is still accommodation available at the Hunters Key Holiday park, but is limited, so if you would like to take up the opportunity to get accommodation for the weekend please contact.
