Insider Pictures - The Marshalls story

It has been a tremendous long week-end for all of us Volunteer Race Marshalls at the Inaugural Singapore Grand Prix. Almost a 1000 of us including Medics and fire Marshall.
We were divided in 26 posts - 1 for each turn plus a couple in between.

Each section would comprise
  • Track marshalls : The one you see helping clearing the Track or moving accident cars - Usually about 6-8 pers.)
  • Communications : in direct comms with race control, reporting everything from spinning cars to accidents... - about 3 on each post
  • Flaggies, the one who would come up with all the different couloured flags - to maintain race safety - around 4 to 6 per post

  • Fire Marshall - to help with accidents - there would be at least 3 to 5 at a section

  • Medics : to help with the first aid - both to driver and staff

  • 1 Deputy Sector marshall ( Singaporean)

  • 1 Sector Marshall - From CAMS Australia- Volunteers as well brought in from Australia to train us all for the past 6 month

I think pictures speak louder than words so here are some of the highlights of the week-end form our perspective.

See you all in 2008....
