I am not bragging in this post, I’m simply counting my blessings!
Thanks to the powers that be this season, I got an opportunity to work four different PWC events so far. And as luck would have it each one of those races I performed a different role as a marshal. That is a massive accomplishment personally in my book. (Log Book if we were doing those things here)
Race 1: St. Petersburg Grand Prix in Florida: Pit Marshal
PWC ran as a support race to IndyCar… and I was there in pit lane.
Race 2: Grand Prix of VIRginia International Raceway (Fire Rescue)
PWC was the headlining event at VIR and I got a chance to ride in the fire truck and tow truck over the 3 day weekend, hooking cars and picking up debris on the hot track!
Race 3: Victoria Day Speedfest at Mosport (Blue Flag Marshal)
PWC sort of competed for the headline event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park sharing the spotlight with local Pinty’s NASCAR series… I think most people went there for PWC but definitely stock cars brings it’s die fans too. I was there flagging over the weekend.
Race 4: Grand Prix of Lime Rock Park (Backup Starter)
The most recent PWC experience at Lime Rock Park over Memorial Day weekend was a cherry on top moment for me working as a Backup Starter to the series Starters. Ahhmazing!
This really is an awesome time for me in my Motorsport volunteering career. If I were to stop marshaling now I’d feel that I’ve done everything I wanted to do with this hobby!
Of course, as many would say and as I totally firmly believe myself: “The Best is yet to come….”
