I believe that it’s right to name the tunnel after the marshal because its a really touching gesture and is there was no marshals there would be no racing. And they give up their spare time to risk their lives for the love of motorsport. 🧡👍

As a fellow marshal, this would be a fitting tribute indeed.

I strongly believe that without Marshals we could not have any kind of racing . Corners and areas of a race circuit are named after riders / drivers but that would not be able to race without marshals. Marshals time , dedicated and professionalism should be honoured . By honouring Robert Foote you will be acknowledging the viral part Marshals playing within the UK’s and world racing arena.

Marshals in the UK are often the unsung heroes of our sport..They are brave people who look after drivers when things go wrong and without them we wouldn't be able to race..I applaud Robert Foote and send my condolences to all his friends and family...let's remember Robert with his name indelibly...RIP

I believe Marshall’s should be given more credit for the sport we all love. It’s just terrible that this has had to happen to make everyone realise it. Love and thoughts to Robert’s family and friends.

As an ex marshal myself I understand he was doing what he loved, I'm only no longer a member of the orange army due to a change of personal circumstances.
Many a day I've spent watching the young upcoming drivers learning their craft, all possible due to those like Robert give their time freely for a sport they love.

I think in honour of the tragic event that occurred where a volunteer marshal sadly lost his life, it would be amazing if the tunnel could be named after this marshal as the sport simply wouldn’t be able to go on without these marshals

The marshals do an amazing job and it's only fitting the tunnel should be named after Robert who tragically lost his life doing a job he didn't get paid for

As a race car driver I have huge respect and gratitude for all marshals everywhere.I always make a point giving the marshals a thank you wave on my slowing down lap.

Paul Aslett (Taunton , )

As a former marshal, the time given is purely for the love of motorsport. Whilst the thought of injury is ever present, such a serious accident is entirely unexpected. He gave his life volunteering to do something he loved, so that others could do something they love. Without the services of the orange army, Brands would not be able to stage the events that it does and i feel that, as a mark of respect, they should acknowledge this request and commemorate the services and memory of Robert

Adam Duffield (Dereham, )
