One of the key elements to a successful track is the team working the circuit to communicate information to our drivers.
As we head into another season, we are offering a FREE flagger training for a few enthusiastic and responsible fans to help drivers stay safe on track.
This entry level course is taught by Chief Marshal Linda Dorval, who has experience on racetracks in Canada and the US. Course attendees learn the meaning of each flag, the correct way to flag, proper radio communication and how to correctly respond to situations on track. Our introductory course prepares students for flagging at corners on our FIA-level professional circuit for Member Lapping days, Academy 27, and Private or Corporate events.
When: Saturday, March 17th
Time: 10:00am – 12:00pm (noon)
Where: Penticton Community Center, Meeting Room: 7
Capacity: 25 people
How to Register: Email Linda at [email protected] – Pre-registration is required. No drop-ins.
Flag Positions at Area 27: Flag workers are given the unique opportunity to assist in ensuring track events run safely and smoothly. Flag workers must be a minimum 18 years of age and we ask people commit to 4 or more days per month. Our track schedule is available online at www.area27.ca/calendar.
Space is limited and we will establish a wait list. If you register and cannot attend due to unforeseen circumstances, please respect our time – advise us as soon as possible so we can bump someone up from the wait list.
We look forward to seeing you with us on the track this summer.
