Our Race Officials are the many wonderful people who volunteer their time to contribute to running a successful race meeting for our Club. It can take a minimum of at least 50 volunteers a day to run an event so we need lots of helpers. You do not need any experience or any Official’s licence to be a volunteer Race Official at our events. However, there are some basic requirements for our Officials which will be vetted by the Club’s Flaggie.
Co-Ordinator. Some of these requirements are:
- get yourself to and from the various circuits.
- to be available all day – i.e. at the circuit from 7:30 am to 5:30pm.
- Trackside Officials need to be at least 16 years at Sydney Motorsport Park.
As a volunteer Race Official for our Club we will provide you with free entry to the circuits for our events, lunch, as much bottled water as you need and a BBQ at the end of the day. There is on the job training and support by very experienced officials. The majority of new officials will be initially allocated to a position as a flag marshal as this is the best (and easiest) position to introduce you to a race event, and you can be teamed up with an experienced official. This is also the very best position to see all the racing up close.
There are many positions for Race Officials at various events which include Flag Marshals, Grid Marshals, Recovery Teams, Scrutineers, Race Administration, Timing and Pit Exit. Progression from flag marshal to some of the other positions may be possible after some suitable training and experience which is the responsibility of the Flaggie Co-Ordinator.
If you are interested in being a Race Official for any of the Phillip Island events such as World Superbike Championship or MotoGP then this can be done via our Flaggie Co-Ordinator.
