Finally, to put what you have learnt into practice, let us consider a fictional, yet familiar, scenario that could occur at a motorsport event you could be involved with…

  • You are the event director of a National Rally.
  • An incident occurs in which a car collides with a group of spectators.
  • Two spectators, a father and son, are killed instantly, while the co-driver is fatally wounded, dying later in hospital.
  • The first marshal at the scene was a close friend of the competitor, and assisted the emergency services who tended to the injured parties.
  • The event is cancelled following the incident.

Take time to consider how you would provide support  to the following parties?

  • The family of the killed spectators,
  • The marshal who was first at the scene, and,
  • The driver of the car involved in the incident.
