The 2021 FIA Volunteers Weekend takes place this weekend, celebrating 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.

Throughout the weekend, the entire motor sport community - from volunteers and officials to fans, drivers and members of the media - are encouraged to join in and show their appreciation on social media. Using the hashtag #FIAVolunteersWeekend and #ThanksMarshal 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."

SMMC has members out volunteering at a number of events this weekend, and most weekends, carrying out a wide variety of essential roles without which motor sport simply would not happen.

As a Club, we value each and every hour dedicated to the sport by our enthusiastic members to do it for the love of the sport - thank you one and all!
