Each year the Auto One Albany Sprint & Rallysprint needs a small group of officials to make the event run smoothly and to keep everyone safe. Registrations are open now for the 2024 event below.

Officials get to the see the action up close and play a vital role.

We need Officials for roles including:

  • Road Closure Officials
    A super important role. Keep the roads and walk trails closed to ensure no one wanders onto the competition course, keep everyone safe – great spectating.
  • Timing Officials
    Get cars into right order, line them up at the start line and release at intervals as directed – see cars up very close.
  • Spectator Marshal
    Similar to road closures but spectators will come to view from the area. Set up an area as instructed, keep spectators safe, answer questions, hand out information – cool viewing positions.
  • Parking Marshal
    Assist at Service Parks to get the cars parked in the correct spot and ensure the public don’t come into park in the same area.
  • Set Up Crews
    Before the events can start, the Set Up Crews put in place the barriers, signs, arrows and tape off all the roads and tracks. Then when it is over, pull them all down and brin them back where they belong.
