I’m signing because, as a retired commentator,
I’m saddened at this fatality and because I so much admire our wonderful marshals and the brilliant work they do.

I have been to brands many times and the tunnel is used all the time during a race weekend. This is a fantastic idea and hopefully we can all get it across the line and for it to be a symbolic tribute to Robert and all other Marshall’s around the country and world. We cannot go racing without you.

This is a great idea to identify the sad loss of a member of the Motorsport Support community (The Orange Army in this case) and all that they give to ensure so many can enjoy motorsport without which we would not have that pleasure.

My thoughts are with the family and friends

As a marshal at Warton Stock Car Club I know the risks and dangers too well of motorsport and whilst incidents like this are very rare it is important that they are not forgotten and by having the tunnel named after Mr Foote, it would be a lifelong tribute and reminder to all who participate.
