Marshals needed for The Grand Tour

Unlike last year I can be more open this time round.  We have again been asked to provide the safety cover (marshals) for the filming of Grand Tour at their test track near Swindon.

Filming depends on the weather and there are times when a good book is very valuable – but then you get to see some very exotic cars being thrashed round the circuit.  Those who did it last year thoroughly enjoyed their days at the track (and at the studio session as well).

All accepted volunteers will need to sign a non-disclosure agreement before marshalling.

I do not have any definitive dates yet, but………………

  • Each day is very different! We normally sign on at 07:30 or 8:00 and are there until 18:00, but each day’s timing varies slightly.
  • We get breakfast (normally bacon, egg and sausage butties etc.)
  • Lunch is provided (normally a hot main course and pudding)
  • Tea and coffee all day
  • £45.00 towards expenses
  • Filming days are very variable – all are mid-week

I publish a list of the planned filming dates to all volunteers, then try to select 8 for each day, giving everyone as equal a chance as possible.  Very often we will get a last minute change of date, so flexibility is essential.

If you are interested please let me know by e-mail at and please head your e-mail Grand Tour.
