EXAMPLE WORKER POSITIONS
Since this is a volunteer sport, we all take turns with working assignments. If you abandon your work assignment, your results may be deleted. You can expect to be assigned one of the following:
Course/Corner - We need lots of these; odds are this will be your position. These workers call in the cones knocked over or out of position and set them back up
Starter - This worker gets cars staged and let's the driver know when the course is ready for the next run.
Grid - The grid worker's assignment is to keep a few cars in the queue for the starter and manage the remaining grid traffic
Timing and Scoring - Computer software and a paper "audit" are used to track and verify everyone's results.
Announcer - Announce the action
Additional assignments that are typically assigned before an event:
Safety Steward - Specific training is required for this position. As the name implies, this worker ensures the safety of the course design, participant behavior, etc.,
Event Chair - This person is responsible for coordinating the overall event.
Chief of Workers - This person coordinates the workers for each heat and tracks "attendance"
Waivers - When you arrive onsite you should get an armband and sign a waiver; this worker will help you complete that.
Registration - These workers accept your payment and ensure you are entered into the computer system.
"Bus" driver - The bus driver transports the equipment to/from the site.
Course designer - It is exactly what the name implies. Some specific training is required.
Tech inspection - This worker checks each car to ensure that it is safe for competition.
RUN/WORK ORDER EXAMPLES
The typical event will consist of 2 run groups. Each run group will get a set of runs (usually 3-4), then we break for lunch. The afternoon session will repeat the morning format. For most solo events, the best morning and the best afternoon runs are combined for your final score. In a RallyCross event, all of your runs are combined.
THREE RUN GROUPS
If we have enough participants, we may move to three run groups. Each run group will get an off session in addition to their a set of runs (usually 3) and work session. The afternoon session will repeat the morning format. For most solo events, the best morning and the best afternoon runs are combined for your final score. In a RallyCross event, all of your runs are combined.
