Volunteer race officials and workers are the backbone of our club’s road racing events.
It takes a lot of hard work from many individuals to put on a race. SFR has some of the best race official and volunteer crews in the country, as evidenced by our award winning chiefs and commendations from professional sanctioning bodies like SCCA Pro Racing, IMSA and Monterey Reunion.
Being an official or volunteer for SFR SCCA means many things. You get to go places and see things most people only dream about. After working some regional races, you can work at Pro events such as the Pirelli World Challenge, IMSA, and the Monterey Reunion at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
You also get the best “seats” in the house and a free lunch each day you volunteer. Wind down each day with a social gathering and bench racing. Our volunteer race official crews are “families” just waiting to adopt you!
To become an SCCA volunteer, check the crew descriptions linked below to see what is available. Then contact the Region Office: firstname.lastname@example.org . We can tell you how to get started and put you into contact with the chief of your chosen crew.
