The British Racing & Sports Car Club wishes to extend its congratulations to experienced clerk of the course and marshal Paul Levitt, who has been recognised by Motorsport UK as one of the top volunteers in the sport for 2022.

Nominated by BRSCC North Western Centre chairman Andy Holley, Paul has been volunteering both nationally and internationally since 2011, when he joined his son as part of the marshaling team for the North West. In his early years, Paul was delighted to have been awarded the BMMC North West Newcomer Of The Year, as well as being presented with the BARC North West Marshal Of The Year and BRSCC North West Achiever Of The Year. During his time in the sport, Paul has gone on to hold roles as an Incident Officer, Flag Marshal, Examining Post Chief and more recently in the role of National Clerk of the Course.

More recently, Paul has been working hard as the Permanent Clerk of the Course for all three of the successful championships within the BRSCC’s thriving and popular Mazda MX-5 paddock to ensure driving standards stay as consistent and as clean as possible across the board. It’s these efforts that led to Andy Holley nominating Paul to Motorsport UK and to his subsequent recognition at the end of 2022.

Paul was recognised alongside Angie Jones from the Vintage Sports Car Club, who was also named as Motorsport UK’s Volunteer of the Year, and both received the well-deserved plaudits for their hard work across the season.

Speaking of his recognition, Paul said: “I have always considered it an honour to be involved with every aspect of motorsport. Over the years I have been fortunate to have been given excellent tuition and guidance by many in positions senior to myself and formed strong and lasting friendships with marshals and officials from my local circuit at Oulton Park through to those from various countries, cultures and backgrounds, and for this I am eternally thankful.

“I wish to express my grateful thanks to Motorsport UK and those responsible for my nomination towards Motorsport UK Volunteer of The Year, for this amazing recognition of my service to motorsport. I would like to send my congratulations to the winner of the trophy and their well-deserved achievement, and I hope this award highlights the challenging work, dedication and commitment carried out by all marshals and officials and the numerous days and weekends they and their families allocate for the benefit of motorsport.”

Adding his praise, BRSCC North Western Centre chairman Andy Holley said: “‘I was delighted and very proud to hear of Paul’s achievement in being the runner up for the Motorsport UK Volunteer of the Year award. He is a shining example to other marshals and officials in the NW region and across the Club in general of what may be achieved within a relatively short timescale.
He has an effective, no nonsense, approach to his motorsport, and officiating in particular, and he has quickly become a popular and thoroughly reliable member of the BRSCC Officials team.

“He has been innovative in his dealings and relationships with competitors and coordinators alike to ensure that the sport goes ahead in the safest and most efficient manner, despite the challenges that the recent years have brought. Despite, but maybe because of, his robust but fair approach to dealing with incidents and competitors, he has become a particularly popular part of the Mazda paddock – where the majority of his officiating has taken place.

“Fiercely ambitious, he has also proved to be a valuable and highly effective mentor to trainee Clerks of the Course, providing essential assistance and advice to them. Paul is a first rate marshal and Clerk of the Course; a great asset for the NW region and the Club, and he is thoroughly deserving of such an award.”
