All motor sport events are reliant on a dedicated group of marshals and officials. A race meeting requires lots of both. A large number of officials are required to ensure the events smooth running. The QMROA welcomes anyone willing to join the team. Stage Rallies, Circuit Racing and Hill climbs all require the same teams.Jobs are varied and include the obvious tasks such as flag marshals and track marshals (those who attend to crashed/broken-down cars, clearing the track etc.). There are many more jobs all of which have to be done. Lap scoring (knowing what position each car is in on each lap), observation of driving standards, deciding if a race should be stopped or if it is safe to carry on after an incident, settling disputes and much more.
Some of the jobs require more training than others and require the person to be licensed by Motorsport Australia. The Queensland Motor Racing Officials Association (QMROA) provides trackside officials for most circuit racing, hill climbs, national and international events in Queensland.
