For many people, becoming a motorsport volunteer, as a marshal or an official, is a great way of getting close to the action without being in the driver’s seat.
Volunteer officials are a vital part of motorsport at every level and without them the sport could not function.
Officials ensure that events are conducted safely, fairly and that the rules and regulations are upheld. Every motorsport event requires a number of officials with various skills to perform a wide range of tasks.
Motorsport volunteers will tell you of the many benefits they enjoy through their involvement with the sport, such as:
- Friendship and comradery
- Learning new skills
- Enjoying new opportunities and experiences
- Satisfaction of contributing to a sport they love
- Potential for personal and professional growth and development
