Marshals are a major part of the bsb or any other racing event and it is about time these people were recognised and by doing a simple act of naming the tunnel after rob foote who died at brands hatch while volunteering and remember these are volunteers, it would be a massive boost to not only the Marshalls but to millions of fans and to all the teams affected by this sad incident.
