You don’t have to be behind the wheel of a race car to experience the adrenaline of motorsport! Become a volunteer motorsport official and join the massive community that help make motorsport events happen.
For each event that the WASCC conducts at Wanneroo Raceway we require between 30 (Tarmac Sportz) and 100 (State Race Meeting) volunteer officials. These officials fulfil numerous and varied roles such as scrutineering, timekeeping, grid marshals, pit lane marshals, flag marshals, fire and recovery crew, radio channel communicators, event administration, race control and more.
Enthusiasm for the sport and an ability to think on your feet are the only pre-requisites needed. Age is no barrier – we have volunteers of all ages from 16 to over 70 years of age. Training will be provided by Motorsport Australia and the WASCC, with an opportunity to upskill and move into other roles if desired. There is no regular commitment expected! Volunteer officials indicate to the WASCC which events they are available for.
There are just three easy steps to becoming a volunteer official – so what are you waiting for?
STEP 1. CONTACT THE CLUB AND REGISTER
Indicate your interest in becoming a volunteer official at the WASCC by completing our online registration form using the link below. This allows us to discover what roles you’d be suitable for, alert you to upcoming officiating opportunities and assist in guiding you through the next steps.
STEP 2. APPLY FOR A MOTORSPORT AUSTRALIA GENERAL OFFICIAL’S LICENCE
All our officials are part of the Motorsport Australia National Officiating Program which is responsible for the grading, licensing, training and recognition of volunteer motor sport officials.
Being a Motorsport Australia Official means your qualifications are recognised with Motorsport Australia affiliation with the FIA, so not only can you volunteer for the WASCC but if desired, you will be eligible to be a motorsport official for other events such as the Formula 1 Grand Prix, Supercars, Targa West, Off Road Rally, Phillip Island Classic and Motorkhana.
To gain your General Official’s licence from Motorsport Australia is very easy and involves completing an online training module. The module takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
To sign-up and be sent the training module, please sign up at Motorsport Australia by clicking here.
