IF YOU ARE A CAMS Accredited official, or simply someone looking for a weekend of Motorsport that allows you to get closer to the sport than ever before, the 2014 Bathurst Motor Festival needs you.To be held across the April 18-20 Easter Long Weekend, the Bathurst Motor Festival is currently recruiting more than 200 volunteers to fill key positions both on and off track.CAMS Accredited officials are required for manning key positions around the circuit, including flag points, whilst a number of non-motorsport positions, where formal training is not necessary, are also available.CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT VOLUNTEERING! CLICK HERE TO APPLY TO BE AN OFFICIAL AT THE EVENT (CAMS Officials)The Bathurst Motor Festival is a relaxed, three-day carnival of Motorsport and this year includes a great on-track program that includes the Formula 3 Australian Drivers Championship, Group N Historic Touring Cars, NSW Production Touring Cars and the NSW Production Sports Car Championship – plus two regularity classes representing the Porsche Club of NSW and the NSW Road Racing Club.All in all, it means more than 250 entries and three full days of on and off-track activities for fans and volunteers to enjoy as well as interact with.”Racing at Bathurst is the absolute highlight of our season,” said John Magro, who finished on the podium last Easter in the opening Formula 3 race.”But we know that it can be a challenging circuit and accidents can happen in the sport. It’s nice knowing that every time we go there, the flag marshalls and trackside officials are there if we need them.”When you’re going across the top of Mount Panorama flat out at 230km/hr, you want to know that those people have got your back!”Outside of driving, the event is always really well run and the volunteers do an awesome job, so we make sure that they can get the VIP treatment if they ever come over and have a look at our cars and our garage. They’re more than welcome because without them, we don’t race!”All Bathurst Motor Festival volunteers are well looked after, too.All will receive three-day access to the venue, a campground site in the main campground directly behind the pit / paddock complex, apparel including shirts and caps, plus meals and drinks for the weekend – and a complimentary guest pass for a friend or family member.The Event cannot proceed without the dedicated and sensational support provided by our volunteers!Interested parties can visit
