A 'record number' of marshals are due to complete their training for the 2022 Isle of Man TT, as new applications open for people wishing to become a volunteer for the first time.

Around 1,000 existing marshals are on target to complete their Incident Management ahead of the races at the end of May.

This year more training and improved facilities have been given to volunteers, with new safety procedures in place.

Clerk of the Course, Gary Thompson, said there had been a "significant uplift" in people applying to become a marshal which was "very encouraging".

The races require a total of 602 marshals per session, with many positioned around various stages of the 37.5-mile course.

Training has been co-ordinated by the Isle of Man TT Marshals Association (TTMA), in association with race organisers ACU Events.

Company Director of TTMA, Jane Corlett said: "Although we’ve missed our marshalling community and the racing, I feel this hiatus has given us a window of opportunity to reflect, review and improve the way we work and the support we offer to our marshals.

She continued: "Our focus has always been the safety of ourselves, the safety of the riders and the safety of the spectators and anyone else."

Registrations to become a TT marshal open today at 5:00pm and more information can be found at
