Russ found a new hobby in 2011: Motorsport volunteering.
Since then he has worked in 15 different countries and for all sorts of racing from Formula 1 to MotoGP.
Russ likes to encourage others to volunteer also.
Get in touch with Russ to find out how.
Saw a friend share a link today on facebook: usacracing.redpodium.com/usac-marshall-program I know USAC: United Sates Auto Club… the Motorsport sanctioning body responsible for organizing marshals for Indianapolis Motor Speedway events. Great people… looking closer at the license application page… they’re using my picture from Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix from a few years back. How cool?
The licensing fee is also significantly cheaper than say SCCA, but granted there are very few events where marshals are needed at IMS, which like other famous oval tracks rely on paid spotters and the light system to signal cautions at the big events, like Indy 500.
Nevertheless, a very worthwhile experience being a member.
So if you’re interested… do join!
