I’m signing because without the Marshalls we have no racing. They give up their spare time to enable us to enjoy the thing we love the most, motorsport.

Robert was volunteering for motorsport as all the orange army do and sadly paid the ultimate price. The least motorsport can do is make sure he is never forgotten. RIP Robert

I am a marshal, so this means a lot to me

Gordon Turner (Harlow, )

#1239

I'm signing as an ex marshal of 17 years with cars and BSB.
There are thousands of marshals dedicating there free time to the fantastic world of Motorsport. Luckerly despite the danger marshal deaths are very few and far between, mainly due to the track safety and the strict training marshals have.
Naming the tunnel would be a great way for Brands Hatch to honer this marshal and his family

Stephen Taylor (Witham, )

#1243

Without these marshals we wouldn't be able to come and watch racing

Andrew Garfirth (Fakenham, )

#1250

Because the Marshall do a fantastic job. To loose it as a volunteer should always be remembered. It shows respect for the hard work they do

Julie Dale (Chesterfield, )

#1260

Someone lost their life doing what they loved and helping others. He should be recognised for his support of the sport and giving up his time in honour of others RIP

Heather Robbins (Somerton, )

#1261

It would be a fitting tribute

Glenn Ginn (Chelmsford, )

#1263

I’m also a Marshal and I agree that a memorial to Rob is a great idea for Brands Hatch and fellow marshals can remember the work he has done over the years.

Roy Joseph (Farnborough, )

#1265

I'm signing because Marshals do the job for the love of the sport and are not paid. It would be a fitting tribute

Lou-Anne Andrews (Grays , )

I am signing this as we should remember the support that makes the racing possible. We should reflect that the orange army are voluntary which means they do it because they want to be close to the action. RIP Robert Foote x

Karen McLaren (Cambridge, )

Without the orange army there is no Motor sport at any circuit.
This is an amazing way to honour a fallen volunteer....
God speed

Darren Mason (Ashford, )

As a Marshal we ask for little but when we lose one if the family, it's only right they are remembered

Gary Elson (Cardiff, )

#1285

Without de marsalls there is no racing all over the world. And they do it voluntarily!

Mark Dols (Landsmeer, )

#1291

I grew up only 5 miles from Brands Hatch and have been a Spectator, Marshal and Competitor there for over 40 years. Motorsport would be nowhere without the enthusiasm and dedication of marshals like Robert.

David Pierce (Aylesford, )

#1294

I've raced, I couldn't do it without marshals. Simple as.

Stephen Kershaw (Dublin, )

#1296

Robert deserves a permanent memorial for his service and courage.

Keith Mehaffey (Dunfermline, )

#1298

As a BSB medic, I support the marshals 100%

Pete Edwards (Bury St Edmunds, )

#1300

Without marshals there is no racing. They give their time selflessly without pay, fame or glory, seeking only to help others compete in or spectate at a motor sport event in as safe a manner as is possible. They are the unsung hero's of motor racing and the time has now come to honor them all with the Robert Foote tunnel.

I raced at BH back in the 60's and know how vital marshals are. God bless you Sir.

David East (MATARANKA, )

#1304

I believe this would be a fitting tribute to the gentleman who like all marshals are the essential backbone of motorsport. Honour the man, the job and the sacrifice. Make his family and friends so proud of him.

Karen Davies-Buckingham (Gloucester , )

#1309

I know how much of an important job marshals do and Robert Foote deserves to be remembered for all his hard work, without marshals like him events simply wouldn't run. 🧡

Nick Dawe (Marske By The Sea, )

#1310

I believe that this would be a fitting and lasting tribute to the memory of Robert Foote. Who I have personally had the pleasure of working with on many occasions at Gurston, Thruxton etc. He was always attentive and very responsive to help and advice. Along with asking for additional advice when required. Robert will be sorely missed. R.I.P. my friend.

Leon Smigielski (Salisbury, )

#1312

What a fantastic gesture, well thought of.

Carol Brogan (Coventry, )

#1314

As a future Marshall, the orange army collective efforts and grief over a colleague is inspiring and he deserves to be remembered permanently

Matthew Baseden (Orpington, )

#1320

I ha e been to many races and without the marshals it would never happen they all deserved the upmost respect, and it if possible is the right thing to do.

Paul Metcalfe (Rushden , )

#1321

Without the marshalls, we wouldn’t have motorsport in the uk. It would be a fitting tribute to someone who dedicated their Time and shared their love of motorsport

Heather Robinson (Hebburn, )

#1324

I love Motorsport, and watching it is only possible because of the work of the Orange Army. This tragedy needs to be remembered, and actions taken to minimise risk for Marshall’s in the future.

#1360

This is one of the greatest honours Brands Hatch could do. I also think that big events from now till end of season do a slow lap of honour in his memory and also to thank all those Marshall’s past and present for their work because if it want for them we would not be racing!

Mark Nichols (Oakham, )

#1361

My son and grandson race there and know the marshals are a vital necessity.

#1376

Marshall’s are a key part in F1, we should owe our respects and make this tunnel a memorial to remind us how important they are and to celebrate Robert’s life

Lauren Ruddock (Brandon, )

#1380

I'm a member of the 'Orange Army', and to lose one of our own is just tragic, my heart goes out to Robert's family, friends and fellow marshals with him on Saturday, I feel it would be an emmense tribute and a lovely gesture to our fallen brother, Robert may you Rest in Peace Sir, much respect to you 🧡🖤🏁

Garrie Appleton (Warrington, cheshire, )

#1384

This will be a great accolade to the service that the marshals contribute to the sport and to Brands Hatch

Paul Craft (New Romney , )

#1386

As volunteers they should be recognized anyway, but when one loses his life for the good of others he should be rembered

David Muckle (Sheerness, )

#1388

Marshals are an integral part of the sport. There is no competition without them and are easily taken for granted.
