I've been a marshall for past 36 years and have the most upmost respect from other marshalls and racers alike don't always get recognition until something like this happens and a fitting tribute (especially where it is) to one of our fallen would be a great gesture.

As a previous marshal, media guy, driver, organiser and manager of events and a local circuit, it was absolutely heart breaking to see this from the weekend. Unfortunately we all enjoy motorsport knowing the risks of life & danger but it's all part of something we all love. This would be a fantastic tribute to Mr Foote and needs putting in place.
