Pennine Rescue Team

Jan 25,2006 by Julian Grattidge

From a competitor’s point of view, these are the guys you hope you never have see out on stage, but you’re mighty glad they’re there, just in case! So, who are, and what is Pennine Rescue? It is an organisation that was set up by Dave Tattersfield and Graham Miles back in 1986.  They managed to scrape together £250.00 each and bought an ex RAF landrover Ambulance, the rescue unit was already being used by Humber Rescue. Since then they have come a long way and their current units carry state-of-the-art equipment.



All rescue units up and down the country are governed by the Motorsports Association and as such have to re-licence, with both crew and unit having to-re qualify every 3 years and attend at least 2 recognised training sessions per year. They have 12 active crew who also give up there time freely and they range in profession from surgeons to electrical fitters! The rescue unit is a cross between an Ambulance and a Fire Engine.  Its primary object is to give fast medical and safety cover at motorsport events.

Pennine Rescue have an excellent website with lots of informative news items and interesting news articles. You can also find details on how the units are funded.
