About this event
MotoGP 2021 Worker Registration
Working together as a team, these marshals' positions provide information and action in case of an incident.
- 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 surface conditions, such as rain, an attentive flag marshal can provide a warning for riders 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 pre-determined flag post throughout practice and racing. They do not get involved with bike recovery but warn of the situation being performed as part of the team.
- Track Marshals: A track marshals’ responsibility is to respond to incidents that may occur in their sector and be the part of the team dealing with machines and surface conditions as necessary. They should have the ability to quickly move a disabled machine to a safe location or check the machine for soundness if it is to continue. They will also report possible impact with protective barriers and check the surface for debris, oil or anything else that may be a hazard and be prepared to remove it. Track marshals need to be comfortable on a hot track, physically capable of a helping move a disabled motorcycle and operate 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. They will guide riders to a safe location or when necessary, as part of a team transport them to safety on a stretcher board. Rider Assist Marshals need to be comfortable on a hot track and physically capable of helping carry a rider on a stretcher board.
