A Stage Commander is responsible for a Rally stage including how it is managed and set up according to the event safety plan. 

They are responsible for all that happens on their stages from the communications, timekeepers, doctors, rescue units, ambulances, and marshals. It is a key role as the Stage Commander is the go-to person for all that happens on the stage.

The elements covered on the Stage Commander Training Course are as follows:

  • Respect Module
  • Duties of the Stage Commander
  • Get to know your stage
  • Stage and location set up
  • P.R. responsibilities
  • Taping
  • Stage areas and stage boards
  • Marshals briefings
  • Incident procedures

As with all Motorsport Ireland training, this course is free of charge but subject to availability, as places are limited. Some courses require applicants to have a set amount of experience or hold a particular grade of licence. This training is prepared and delivered by highly trained personnel. The course is constantly updated to include the latest information and it can lead on to other roles. Future courses will include a pre-screening eligibility questionnaire.
