For anyone considering participating as a marshal in Formula 1 during the 2014 season, the application process has opened for the Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park to be held next March. The online application is again handled by CAMS and is a fairly quick and painless process. For anyone requiring a recommendation please don’t hesitate to ask though I highly encourage their home ASN to provide an official letter of recommendation for something as prestigious as F1.
The nomination process for the British Grand Prix is also open. A nomination form must be filled out and accompanied by supporting documentation to be considered as a marshal during the British GP. A vote is then taken to approve or deny candidates. I would highly encourage folks to follow the instructions on the application. When it says tick one box for specialty do not tick two… I made this mistake this year selecting both flag & track specialties… because you know… I can do both… I was assigned “track” but due to my injury early before the start of the event, ended up doing “flag” anyway. Again, if anyone requires a referral, don’t hesitate to ask.
Best of luck!
