Race promoter Singapore GP is inviting volunteers to sign up as a volunteer race official for the 2013 FORMULA 1 SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX. Public registration for marshal recruitment is open from today, 11 March until 31 March 2013 (11:59).

“Since the inaugural night race in 2008, we have trained over 2,500 volunteer marshals,” said Mr. Gabriel Tan, Clerk of the Course, Singapore GP Pte Ltd. “With a retention rate of at least 85% – one of the highest in Formula One™ – it is as much a pleasure as it is a challenge to continually raise the bar each year. I look forward to working with the new volunteers in making the 2013 FORMULA 1 SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX a roaring success.”

Now in its sixth year, the night race continues to receive glowing reviews from the Formula One™ fraternity, including Mr. Bernie Ecclestone, who hails Singapore as a “jewel in F1′s crown which keeps getting polished.”

A total of 150 positions are available in key trackside functions, including observers, track marshals, flag marshals and fire marshals. Depending on the area of responsibility, each marshal can expect to clock a minimum of 32 hours of training. First-time race officials will attend approximately seven days of theory and practical training, conducted over weekends starting in May 2013. Highlights of the hands-on training include performing recovery and extrication exercises on a Formula BMW open-wheeler and a Subaru WRX.
