Volunteer Register

As you all know Speed Week cannot operate without our volunteers, this register exists to ensure that we have the right number of volunteers where and when we need them. Even if you don't compete at Speed Week you are more then welcome to volunteer at Speed Week.

Each Speed Week Entrant or a member of their team must volunteer for at least one shift as part of their entry.
As an extra incentive, team members who nominate early will have a significant advantage when selecting their jobs and shifts, whereas later entries will have to take what ever jobs and shifts are left.

 

  • A job is one shift of a particular task that has to be performed. The task may extend over a number of days.
  • A shift is considered to be one half day. Some jobs by their nature, may be less than half a day.
  • All jobs must have someone nominated to them before Speed Week can commence.
  • If you nominate for a task at a particular time and you cannot for what ever reason fullfill this obligation, its up to YOU to find a replacement before your allotted time, otherwise the track will be closed.

To give you a guide as to what we are expecting from teams, if we have say 200 entries, that's 2 shifts per team. Not a big ask when you consider each shift is only for half a day and they can be spread over up to 8 to 10 days.

 

See a list of job types and descriptions here.

 

NOTE: The number of volunteers nominated to any job is considered to be the minimum requirement. There are a number of jobs where if we have more volunteers, the time allocated to the task can be reduced. This is partiularly true of some set up and pack up jobs. (This is using the many hands makes light work principle)

 

Occupational Health and Safety

The DLRA is committed to providing a safe and practical workplace which will minimise risk to volunteers health and safety. As a registered volunteer you are covered by the DLRA's officials and Volunteers Insurance policy. To ensure your coverage, it is your responsability to sign on and off when undertaking your volunteer task during Speed Week.
NOTE: Each section leader will have a sign off sheet, it is the volunteers obligation to sign this sheet.
