Get involved in motorsports Volunteer!
Remember watching racing can fun but being part of the race is even better. So if you are not racing come-out and volunteer the second best way to watch a race, the best way is to be in the car.
Race Volunteers make events happen-from the organizers of the event to the person taking your ticket; it takes a lot of people to make an event work. Road Racing Cars Volunteer Positions: Clerk of the Coarse, Steward, Starter, Chief Coarse Marshal, Corner Captain, Communicator, Yellow Flagger, Blue flagger, Safety, Pri-grid, Pit in & Pit out, Rescue personnel: Ambulance crew, Fireman & Clean-up Crew Tow Truck driver, Pace Car Driver, Timing personnel, Srutineer (Tech), Registration.
One of the coolest ways to volunteer is as a track-side marshal/corner worker. Road course marshals are race personnel that surround the road course track at specified stations that communicate to drivers with flags and each other on radios. These are a committed group of volunteers that with training and experience, can become qualified to work the big professional races like Indycar & Formula 1. I always loved Blue Flagging, to be good you need to keep the race positions in your head. Friday June 18-19 2021 – Marshal School.
Northern Alberta Sports Car Club (NASCC) Statement:
Let’s Go Racing, BUT we need your support more than ever before!
Marshals needed for NASCC racing events in 2021.
TRAINING AND FIRST EVENT INFO
- Friday, June 18th – Class Instruction:
- Saturday, June 19th – On-track Instruction:
- Sunday, June 20th – Race day Marshaling – 8am-4pm
- We ask all participants, enthusiasts, and those with family looking to blow away lockdown cobwebs to join our Marshal team. Training and our first road racing event are at Castrol Raceway, Leduc
- June 18-20th. Without the passion and hard work of our incredible Marshals, it wouldn’t be possible to race.
** WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MARSHALLING? I’ve never done it before.**
- Every Marshal volunteer receives a complimentary NASCC membership worth $70, + vital knowledge of how a motorsport event is conducted and safely managed.
- Get closer to the action! Marshaling gives you a viewpoint the stands simply won’t. You will have the greatest seat to watch your local competitors duel it out over hours of racing.
- We have created a LinkedIn page, which allows you to add the NASCC as a volunteer role on your LinkedIn profile. Get noticed by businesses for your efforts! https://www.linkedin.com/company/nasccmotorsport
- Finally, the responsibility of holding a safe event means everything and without you, these events simply wouldn’t go ahead. Waving that yellow flag reduces the risk for all involved, and we extend a massive thanks to every marshal for helping be a part of this.
