About this event
RESCHEDULED: NOVEMBER 13-14-15, 2020!
MotoGP 2020 Worker Registration
Flag Marshals: Flags are used to warn riders of hazards, provide information or give instructions. In the case of an incident, or a change in circumstances such as rain, an attentive flag marshal on the spot can provide a faster warning than any other system, and can quickly feed accurate information back to race control. Similarly Race control can ask flag marshals to instruct or warn riders, using the flags. Flag Marshals do not move from their prearranged flag post, throughout practice and racing and do not get involved with bike recovery.
Track Marshals: The Track Marshals’ job is to prepare for any incidents that may occur on their section, and be first responders, dealing with motorcycles and track hardware as necessary. They need to remove crashed bikes quickly, to a safe place, check the track, bike, protective walls and surrounding area for debris, oil or anything else that might be a hazard, and remove it. Track marshals need to be comfortable on a hot track, physically capable of a helping move a disabled motorcycle, as part of a team, and if necessary, operating a fire extinguisher.
Rider Assist Marshals: Rider Assist Marshals act as assistants to the qualified medical staff, in helping respond to crashed or stopped riders, guiding them or when necessary being a team member transporting them to safety. Rider Assist Marshals need to be comfortable on a hot track and physically capable of helping carry a rider on a stretcher board.
