I started marshalling at bike racing events in Mondello Park when I turned 16 and began covering car events too, a couple of years later. I have not looked back since and have no regrets in joining up!

Marshaling has given me the opportunity to travel the country and abroad with good friends and colleagues, working together on everything from Circuit Racing and Rallycross, to Road Racing, Formula One, Karting, Motocross, Sprint Enduro, and demo events. No two days or events are ever the same! 

There really is no better way to get close to the action and enjoy the sport that we all love. 

If you are willing to learn, work hard and have a laugh at the same time, volunteering is the way to go! Most importantly, you will meet a brilliant bunch of people while you are at it.
