Volunteer as an Official
Becoming a motor sport official is the best way of getting close to the action without being in the drivers seat. Volunteer officials are a vital part of motor sport 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 motor sport event requires a number of officials with various skills to perform a wide range of tasks
There are many activities required to ensure the activity is safe and controlled and public access restricted. Each event has a different requirement for officials however some of the jobs we need include:
- Road Closure Officials – you get to be right next to the course in a safe location, sometimes in radio contact to ensure no one enters without authorisation, but with your own private viewing spot
- Control Officials – events are timed so we need officials to record time, start cars and communicate results and control the flow of cars
- Course Car Officials – we have vehicles, usually 4WD’s go ahead and behind the field to ensure the roads are clear and course is correct and all competitors are safe
- HQ officials – we use a radio network to control events and this is operated by experienced officials who control the rally and ensure everyone’s safety.
