UPDATE: Red Bull Ring Marshals Contact

Thanks to our German friend Christoph we now have a proper contact for the marshaling bodies at the Red Bull Ring.

You read that right, we’ve found not just the direct link for the people in white & blue uniforms that wave flags and do recoveries at the track, but also the people in red fire suits: EMS crew, rescue vehicle crews and the pit and grid marshal crew: all having their own separate web sites (which no matter how hard we searched before we couldn’t find).

So if you wish to marshal (flaggie/trackie) at the Red Bull Ring, contact this club: www.oesterreichring-sicherheitsstaffel.at/

If you wish to work on the recovery trucks, and to me it seems like a private tow truck company that happens to be hired by Red Bull Ring to do recovery work on race weekends, contact: www.bergedienst.at/

For the medics out there wishing to volunteer their services for the local EMS crew, do contact them directly: www.ems-sports.at/

And finally for the Pit & Grid marshals out there interested in performing that activity while volunteering at Red Bull Ring, contact their Pit & Grid crew direct: www.msc-spielberg.at/

Thanks again Christoph for helping out with this search, I hope some of our readers find the information useful.

How to Marshal a DTM event at Red Bull Ring?

This is a question I don’t have an answer to.

So dear reader, how do you marshal a DTM event at Red Bull Ring?

According to this infographic from voestalpine.com there are 364+ marshals (plus 70 firemen) at Red Bull Ring for the Austrian GP:

Out of all those people there doesn’t seem to be much information about them online, including web sites and through social media. The official Red Bull Ring web site: click here, doesn’t list any links to marshaling opportunities. Austria ASN: Osterreichischer Automobile-Motorrad Und Touring Club (OAMTC) web site: click here, doesn’t link to anything useful either. They seem to be much like ADAC in Germany or AAA in the US, being a general automotive club rather than Motorsport focused club that recruits marshals. Searching for marshals under other tracks in the country like Salzburgring yields a link to: marshals-club.at but their web site makes no mention of the the venue of interest.

I’m quite surprised about this and wanted to share this post to see if people would chime in and help with contacts. Thanks in advance!
