The ARDC is the heart and soul of Australian Motorsport – and without our volunteer officials, our ability to deliver this bold proposition would not be possible.
Australian Motorsport relies on an army of volunteers, and at Sydney Motorsport Park we welcome volunteers and race officials for every event run by the ARDC: fire and rescue marshals, recovery marshals, grid and pre-grid marshals, pit lane marshals, race control administrators, scrutineers, timekeepers, flag marshals and other key roles. It’s the best thing next to competing, meet your motorsport heroes, and spend your weekends with fellow enthusiasts who share your interest in motorsport.
Becoming a CAMS-accredited official or volunteer is the best way of getting involved, and we try here at ARDC to make that as simple and streamlined a process as possible. We assist CAMS with Training Courses, and we are always on hand with our own training, upskilling and mentoring.
It is also a great social activity: we have barbeques at our race meetings and get-togethers outside of the race weekends, plus incentive programmes and point scores to make sure that every one of our officials is ‘engaged’ in the group, and definitely feels like they are an important part of something bigger than themselves.
In becoming an official, you have the capacity to learn and grow with the possibility of going interstate or even overseas to participate in other exciting events. The sky really is the limit.
