All motorsport events are reliant on a dedicated group of marshals, officials and organisers. A large number of officials are required both track-side and in the office to ensure the events smooth running.
TWMC welcome anyone willing to join the team. Even the simplest events such as an Autotest requires a team to set up courses, time tests and run the event prior and post event.
Jobs are varied and include the obvious tasks such as flag marshals and incident marshals (those who attend to crashed/broken-down cars, clearing the track etc.). There are many more jobs all of which have to be done. Observing of driving standards, deciding if a race should be stopped or if it is safe to carry on after an incident, settling disputes and much more. Some of the jobs require more training than others and some require the person to be licenced by Motorsport UK, but all can be done by TWMC members.
In general terms, there are none. Volunteers are welcome at any age, although the duties of young people may be limited in certain situations.
Motor Sport offers equal opportunities at all levels, although there are a few legal exemptions, including certain competitor disabilities and minimum ages for both competing and officiating.
If you already have special skills – technical, mechanical, rescue, vehicle recovery, medical, first aid or administration; you may wish to use those skills as a volunteer in motor sport.
