This weekend sees a celebration of those who dedicate their time to make motor sport possible around the world.
The FIA Volunteers Weekend presents an opportunity to raise awareness and give thanks to the volunteers who carry out the wide variety of essential roles without which motor sport would simply not happen.
Using the hashtag #FIAVolunteersWeekend on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, people can share photos and stories of themselves in action over the two days, connecting motor sport volunteers at all levels from all around the world - from club events to world championships.
“Volunteers are the unsung heroes of motor sport. Without them, quite simply, we would not be able to go racing,” said FIA President, Jean Todt. “It is important for the FIA to recognise their vital contribution, and the occasion of the Volunteers Weekend shine the spotlight on their hard work and dedication to ensuring the safety and success of events the world over.
“This is also an opportunity to promote the positive benefits that volunteers gain from their involvement, and help attract new people to motor sport.”
Scottish Motorsport Marshals Club Chairman, Garry Headridge, added, “It is good to see volunteers being acknowledged. As a Club we value each and every hour dedicated to the sport by our enthusiastic members who do it for the love of the sport.“
2020 has been a unique challenge, hopefully 2021 will give you the chance to once again be out and about doing what you enjoy. Thank you one and all.”
