ARE YOU A RACE FAN?
THEN THIS IS A MUST READ!
Did you know that racing only happens because of the efforts of a large number of volunteers at every event?
Have you ever considered getting closer to the action and supporting the sport you love?
Is having an exciting time with fantastic people while being part of the sport you enjoy as a spectator important to you?
All volunteers are members of CASC-OR affiliated clubs and they receive free training by the organizations. Check out their websites, listed below, for more information on each club. You can also meet us the next time you are at Mosport, Shannonville, Calabogie or even the Honda Indy Toronto. All of the volunteer workers are more than willing to tell you about what we do.
You can volunteer to work in any of the areas listed in the sidebar and more. We also have volunteers at Solo Sprint events as well as Autoslalom, Rallying and Ice Racing.
Corner marshals communicate with drivers or riders using various flags and with race control by radio. They keep the races running smoothly and are also trained to react as first response to racing incidents. Marshals are licensed by CASC-OR which is affiliated to ASN Canada FIA. Once they have accumulated the required experience, this license allows them to work at many race events such as the Honda Toronto Indy, ALMS, NASCAR and at International tracks. They receive training in all areas of marshalling and trackside safety through these organizations:
MMS (Motorsport Marshalling Services)
CRCA (Canadian Race Communications Association) www.crca1.com
Have you ever wanted to volunteer and enjoy the comforts of a climate-controlled building overlooking the front stretch of some of Canada’s most famous race tracks? Then consider timing and scoring and the Canadian Timing Association. CTA has been around almost as long as professional motor racing in Canada, starting in 1970. Since then, not only has the CTA become the timing authority for the CASC-OR but club timers have had the opportunity to go on to be series timers in the Canadian professional ranks as well as work professional events such as the Toronto Indy and the Canadian Grand Prix.
Visit the CTA website for more information:

Races are organized by the following clubs and have volunteers that do any of the other roles listed above. Many volunteers belong to multiple clubs and enjoy helping in many different roles at many different events. Each club requires over 75 volunteer workers (not including marshals and timers) for each race event that is run. These people are instrumental in getting the cars and drivers ready to race and ensuring the races run smoothly and the rules and regulations are adhered to by all competitors.
