DMsB receives institute award

German ASN achieves highest training standards and becomes latest Regional Training Provider

The Deutscher Motor Sport Bund (DMSB) has been awarded the FIA Institute’s Officials’ Award for the Achievement of Excellence after demonstrating the highest standards of motor sport marshalling and training.
The award opened the way for DMSB to become an official Regional Training Provider (RTP), joining the UK’s MSA and Spain’s RFEDA as one of three training providers from Europe.
DMSB is now eligible to train ASNs around the world, aided by financial support from the Motor Sport Safety Development Fund.
FIA President Jean Todt said: “Germany is one of the world’s leading motor sport markets and it is right that it should be at the forefront of motor sport training. We are very pleased to recognise the DMSB’s excellent work in this area and for them to help others achieve this standard.”

FIA Institute President Gérard Saillant added: “I would like to congratulate DMSB on demonstrating the highest standards of marshalling and training. We now have six ASNs that can deliver tailored training to the highest standards and in a variety of languages.”
DMSB President Hans-Joachim Stuck said: “This accreditation represents a major milestone in the development of the DMSB. Education and training are of significant importance for our association and we look forward to helping other organisations so we may jointly improve safety standards across motor sport.”
The RTP initiative is the cornerstone of the Officials Safety Training Programme. As part of this programme, ASNs can apply for grants that seek
to raise the standards of motor sport marshalling in their country, and in many cases these projects can be carried out with support from an RTP.
