  • Barber 2016 Club Race Workers

    Tennessee Valley Region and Alabama Region of the SCCA are co-sponsoring a
    DOUBLE SARRC / DOUBLE SECS / TT at Barber Motorsports Park on August 27-28, 2016.


    WE WILL NEED WORKERS

    Registration is now open! Click here to go to Motorsportreg to register

    We are paying $50/day plus lunch.
    We have plans for a Saturday Night Social/BBQ and Beer Exchange.

    We'll need:

    Worker Chief: This is getting folks where they need to be. Assigning work stations to the many volunteers for our event. Making sure that we don't have first time workers paired up at stations and generally making sure we have plenty of folks to help out with this, our big once a year event.

    Corner Marshals: Work on the front lines of racing. Flagging and Communication with race control and the drivers. A very important job, fun and exciting to do. Experience not essential as you'd be paired with a trained pro corner worker.

    Grid: Helps to get the cars lined up in the proper grid spot and out on the track. Experience not essential as you'd be a part of the team of grid personnel.

    Tech/Scrutineer: Inspect the racecars prior to the race. You need a license for this. Call or email SCCA and get a regional license. (membership@scca.com) It's that easy! You move up a license grade with experience.

    Impound: Hot race cars need to be pushed across the scales to be weighed post race. Even hotter drivers need a cold wet towel and bottle of water handed to them to help cool them down. Experience not essential, but it's a vital job that needs to be done.

    Trophy presenter: As easy as it sounds. Once through impound you check the final results and present the trophy to the race winner!

    Paddock Marshals: Race car drivers sure can find their way around the track, but have a hard time finding their way through the paddock area. Here's where you can help. Friday evening we need people to help the folks find a spot to park their rigs and get in the right area to get a power hookup. Experience not essential.

    Registration: Help drivers get checked in, paid up if needed, and ready for a weekend of racing. Experience not essential as you'd be part of a team. On the job training, it's the best way to learn.


    Sound Control: You wouldn't think a racetrack needs to keep the sound levels in check but Barber has its limits. Help us keep track of the sound levels that the racercars put out. Pretty easy, stress free job and in a great location 50-feet off drivers left just past the museum turn. Experience not essential as you would be part of a team of Sound Control personnel.

    Timing and Scoring: There are alot of cars going around the track, someone has to keep up with who's leading and what order the cars qualified. This is about results and the drivers are always craving the results. It's a vital job. No experience necessary because they offer on the job training as well as a seat in the air-conditioned control tower.

    Announcers: The public address system operators provide a steady stream of information to the drivers in the paddock regarding schedule information as well as race commentary for the spectators watching all around the track. Experience is a plus and a team of 2 works well in this situation.

    These are important jobs that need to be done.
    I repeat; These are important jobs that need to be done.
    Once more for those in the back row; These are important jobs that need to be done.

    The more hands we have the easier the work will be.
    Help us put on the best race in the South East Division and learn a valuable skill at the same time.

    Thank you!

    Sign me up for Sound Control. Also, I'm in the process of (that is, thinking about) requesting approval for an alternate location for Sound, because of the museum construction. I believe we'll be able to officially check sound levels driver's left, across from the apex at station 14, just past the tunnel. I'll make sure the race board knows when this spot has been approved.

      We've been talking with Zoom about an alternative site for sound. They were going to let us know if the Museum turn location would be available this year.

          Registration for Barber has not opened yet. Cannot do that until we get supps approved and sanction numbers issued.

          Not to worry, there are plenty of opportunities to work the event.

              I'm game for Impound.

              On MSR there was no Worker 'Class' called Impound, I chose Scrutineer since it sounded close enough!

                              Good Monday morning ALSCCA!
                              We are about 6 weeks away from this event happening and we still need a lot of volunteers to help make it a smooth running event. Please sign up and help us put on a great event! There are plenty of positions available but our likely greatest need is corner marshals. We'll need 34 people to run the corners for 2 days. That's alot of people. Help us if you can so we can continue to provide the SEDIV racers with a good race weekend.
                              Thanks!
