Volunteer Registration for the Grand-Am/American LeMans Series Weekend
August 8-11, 2013 at Road America
(NOTE: We are only staffing Friday, August 9, through Sunday, August 11. We are not staffing Thursday.)
We invite volunteers planning to work the Grand-Am/ALMS event to pre-register here. This will allow the Region to plan staffing levels, lunch and dinner counts,and to provide the best experience for all our volunteers.
There are several changes to this year’s event, so please read the following carefully. If you know of others planning to work the event, but do not typically use MotorsportReg to pre-register, PLEASE pass along the information below. Those individuals who are unable or unwilling to use MSR may contact the online registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org to have their pre-registration entered for them.
We are currently planning to staff the following specialties:
- Corners/Flag Marshals
- Race Admin/Scoreboards
- Registration (for SCCA volunteers)
- Course Marshals
Chicago Region is pleased to continue to offer free camping at the events we staff. Just like last year, the free camping area will be in the worker camping area outside of the track.
New for 2013, Chicago Region is offering subsidized camping within the track. Workers will be asked to pay a $25 flat fee towards a camping spot, and Chicago Region will cover the remaining cost of the site and the individual wristbands. Only workers who purchase this option on MotorsportReg in conjunction with their preregistration will be able to get this reduced rate. Workers who do not purchase this option during preregistration may purchase onsite camping at Gate 4 for the standard spectator fees. Due to the high demand for camping at this event, we do not yet know where the worker camping will be inside the track.
As in previous years we will be allowing workers to obtain a guest pass for those who are not working but accompanying them to the event. In 2013 we will implement a strict one (1) guest pass per worker policy, as has been the policy previously. This year we will only be offering this benefit to those workers who pre-register. Only workers who pre-register on MotorsportReg will be able to reserve a guest pass. The guest must also be pre-registered in MotorsportReg in conjunction with the worker registration. Overages and non-preregistered guests will be asked to purchase a spectator pass at the spectator entrance. There is concern over controls in previous years, forcing tighter monitoring of this policy. We thank you for your understanding.
As part of the tighter controls for 2013, there will be a strict oversight policy in effect for this event. Specialty chiefs will be provided with a list of workers who checked in for their specialty, and they will be required to verify when and where they worked. Anyone who checks in as a worker and is not verified to have worked at least a full day (across the entire weekend) will be addressed. It is the worker’s responsibility to check in with their specialty chief and make sure their work was validated.
A tentative schedule of events can be found here. Note that Saturday is a long day, so plan accordingly!
