Here's something to ponder for the new year, perhaps once the Turkey and Chocolates are consumed.
If you'd like to give a little back to the sport and club you love, why not get involved with helping and organising? You may not need specific prior experience for some roles, but a keen interest in motorsport and people is a given. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more. In every role there is either a financial gesture, or expenses covered.
The following volunteer and officials positions are currently available.
Assistant(s) to Driver Liaison Afternoons at a race event:
Our Driver Liaison teams have been superb at acting as the first point of contact, should the Clerks need to speak to a driver and vice-versa. In fact, they are so busy during race weekends, it would help if they had individuals to assist them, particularly in collecting and returning onboard memory cards, or helping to find drivers in the paddock. This might suit partners of drivers racing on the day, as there is some freedom to have a break for an hour in the afternoon and no need to commit for a full weekend, or even more than one meeting a year. Assistant(s) at 'signing on' Typically 8am to 11am at a race meeting. Whilst we don't have signing on, as such, drivers are asked to assemble at a given time for their briefings, ticked off a list as they enter. At the same time, stickers and wrist bands are issued. With our large grids there is a risk of a queue developing, slowing the process down. Therefore, we are looking for individuals who can give us a few hours of their time, to help speed along the process, with a friendly smile. Even helping at just one meeting would help us out.
Driver Representative: Gold Arts Magnificent Sevens
We have a vacancy for a Drivers Representative, to look after the Gold Arts Magnificent Sevens Series. A rewarding role, that listens to drivers and helps out on race weekends and behind the scenes, as part of a voting member of the CSCC committee. They help advise the CSCC Directors in decisions made, for the good of the drivers and club as a whole. A full role description is available on request. This is perfect for someone with knowledge of Seven-type cars.
Our current Trainee, Philip Dunlop is likely to finish his Motorsport UK Clerks training with us in 2024, therefore, the club would like to support a new individual. No prior experience as an official is needed, although experience around club motorsport, for example as a Marshal or a driver, is advantageous. The team of Clerks are ultimately responsible for the safe, efficient running of a race meeting. The very best of them strike that balance of following regulations, with great customer service. If you'd like to know more, please get in touch.
If you are already qualified, please get in touch, whatever your grade. You may not have volunteered at a CSCC event before, give us a try, by filling out the availability form on our website. https://www.classicsportscarclub.co.uk/marshals-officials
We welcome friendly, skilled Clerks, who understand the importance to the CSCC of maintaining high driving standards. Our drivers are well behaved and value their cars finishing an event with no damage, making for a nice environment in race control.
Marshals Marshals of all grades are gratefully received at any of our race meetings. You will receive cash at signing on, as a gesture of thanks and to go towards your out of pocket expenses. You will be rewarded by high quality, varied racing, large grids of cars, grateful drivers and be kept informed by race control. We have a good record of finishing within the timetable.
If you have not yet tried Marshalling at a CSCC event, please give us a try and share this with your friends.
