I'm signing because without the Orange Army events would not be able to take place. They give their time freely and are are the highly experienced in what they do.

A very worthy petition. Without marshals we wouldn't get to watch the sports we love on track. Let's get the tunnel renamed in Roberts honour!

Without marshalls.. we would not have our beloved motorsports. As competitors we accept the risks of injury or death... these heroes in orange do the same and only get a fraction of the glory and they all need to recognised.

Without Marshals there would be no motorsport and the loss of one is an absolute tragedy.

Philip Mitchell (Carterton, )

Without marshalls, the sport cannot continue. They voluntarily sacrifice their time for a sport they love, and that is through all weathers.
On Saturday Robert Foote sacrificed more than any marshall should ever have done. And for that reason I find it fitting to have the tunnel named in his memory, and in solute to all marshalls who continue to make our sport possible.
