Register your interest to become a volunteer MotoGP™ Race Official if you have a love for motorcycle racing and want to be close to the action without being in the rider’s seat.
You will have a front-row view of all the on-track action while carrying out one of many Race Official roles, which include Flag Marshals, Communications and Track Marshals.
These roles are vital to ensure that the on-track racing is conducted safely. All motorsport events require many Officials with varying skills to perform a wide range of tasks.
Volunteering at the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix is a fantastic way to get involved in a sport or industry that you are passionate about, in a role that has the main purpose of benefitting someone else – in this case, you will be protecting the safety of competitors (as well as officials, staff and other volunteers).
Volunteers have played a key role throughout the history of motorsport in Australia. The volunteer roles available to be filled have not been previously held by a paid worker.
By applying to be a Race Official at the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, you acknowledge that:
- You have been sourced from a pool of people with an interest in motorsport, volunteering or the Motorcycle Grand Prix;
- You do not expect to be paid for your time at the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix and do not intend to create an employee/employer or contractor relationship;
- You are under no obligation to attend the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix or perform volunteer work at the event; and
- You are undertaking the volunteer work to benefit the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix and motorsport in Victoria and Australia and not to obtain a private benefit for yourself.
Applications to become a volunteer Race Official at the Michelin® Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix 2017 are now open. Register your interest below and you will be sent a link to apply online.
Some key things we would like you to do first is, if you are Victorian-based, to apply for a Working With Children Check from Victoria. Due to amendments to the Working With Children Check Act of 2005 which came into effect on 1 August 2017, all Victorian-based volunteer Race Officials will be required to obtain a Victorian Working With Children Check.

We also encourage all officials at Motorcycling Australia (MA) events to hold a valid MA licence, which is free. The ongoing aim of our organisation is to encourage officials to develop their skills. One way that we ensure the development of your skills is through appropriate “at event” training. Licensing provides the accountability to prove that those officials working at meetings have the appropriate knowledge to participate in the event.
We encourage you to register on MA’s RIDERNET database and take a little time to complete the online Level 1 Operational Official licencing course which you can find here.
