Great news again, I’ve been accepted to marshal the 2013 Grand Prix du Canada, at the beautiful Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on Ile Notre-Dame in Montréal, Quebec. Next step is to pay the $30 CAD fee to volunteer and start making travel arrangements.
The beauty of the Canadian GP is that as marshals we get to work several different posts and positions over the race weekend. I was lucky last year to work turn 8, turn 14 – the infamous “Wall of Champions” and turn 4a over the three days there, and besides flagging, working safety and comms, got to see action from a number of different angles. The Thursday night party organized by a few American marshals at Hurley’s Bar was pretty cool too, especially since Will Buxton was the guest of honor hanging out with the marshals.
Looking forward to a busy June schedule 🙂
