History & Team Silk

Up Next

Silk Rally Radio was started in the early 1990's by a group of BRMC Rally Marshals

who thought that they would try a different aspect of their preferred sport.

This doesn't mean that all we do is sit in our cars all day keeping dry and warm whilst all the other marshals look on enviously.

Whilst some of this does occur, we all spent more days doing non-radio rally marshaling, be it stage timekeeping

or up to our knees in mud half way up a mountain with the weather traveling horizontally. 

What grew out of an email list to keep each other up to date regarding events has now expanded

to provide information to other Motor Clubs, other Marshals, rally radio groups, regional MSA radio co-ordinators,

licensed rescue units, licensed recovery units, and event organising teams from Scotland to Cornwall.

Additionally the Calendar pages continually expand to cover non-rally events, such as

circuit, road rally, auto-test, 4x4, hill climbs, etc.

Please feel free to roam around the site, which will continue to change and expand as more information becomes available.

Oh, the Silkworm. Well the town of Macclesfield is famous for it's silk industry.


Who are these strange people with SILK Callsigns ?

Is there a face associated?
