John Nicol winner 2022 – Dave Fitzsimon

This annual award, in memory of John Nichol, is given in recognition of a marshal who has completed less than two years at the time of nomination, but has demonstrated a positive attitude and a range of skills to show their outstanding commitment to the sport

After approaching the club at a recruitment stand at Oulton Park in 2021 Dave Fitzsimon joined BMMC in February 2022 and without doing a taster day, plunged into the deep end by attending twelve meetings during the year. 

He loves the sport (along with Oulton Park) and was genuinely delighted when he attended his first meeting in April 2022 being the 750MC event. He has attended all sorts of club and high-profile meetings in all weathers and has proved himself to be a hardy soul!

He is enquiring, is a proactive member of the team, asking questions, is enthusiastic, making sensible suggestions, and taking on board feedback from post chiefs and fellow marshals throughout his days on the bank. Dave should be proud of his first year as a marshal and the committee look forward to him becoming a more integrated member of the team in the coming years.
