Volunteer Development

Volunteers are the power behind UK motorsport. Whether marshals or scrutineers, timekeepers or rescue and recovery personnel, the 10,000 Motorsport UK-registered volunteers are vital to ensuring the safe and effective running of the 4,500 motor sport events that take place every year.

This section of the Club Toolkit is to help clubs with the recruitment and retention of volunteers, as well as ideas for giving recognition to your volunteers whose efforts should be rewarded.

Volunteer Recruitment

Clubs tell us one of the biggest challenges they face is the recruitment of volunteers, this includes marshals to event organisers. See our marketing section of the Club Toolkit for how to use social media and various marketing methods to help recruit new club members and volunteers.

You can view the recording of the Volunteer webinar which provides guidance on how to best support and recruit new volunteers here.
