The Victorian Flagmarshalling Team is now recruiting volunteers to officiate trackside at Motorsport events at Sandown, Phillip Island and Winton.

No experience necessary as training will be provided trackside at race meetings with experienced flag marshals.

As a Flag Marshal, you will be allocated to a point around a motor racing circuit to convey information to racing drivers using a set of coloured flags.

This role is essential to the safe running of motor sport events.

As a new volunteer, you will be guided through an initial training period by senior officials while working track side to help you gain the skills required to be a competent flag marshal. From there, the world of Motorsport is literally your oyster, with many of our members attending events both interstate and internationally.

NB. Where possible, a contact number is preferred to email as this helps us to arrange to get you trackside at an event sooner.
