Register for Satellite Crew Positions all Locations

Please read the information below before considering registering as race crew:

The opportunity to be on a drag racing team is exciting and you are invited to register to help locally and interstate. Satellite Crew positions are volunteer and on occasion we can provide accommodation. Food and drinks are provided at the track covering lunches, dinners and snacks. 

Crew work is physically demanding, non-stop and the conditions can be pretty tough, especially working outside under the elements in tents and standing out on the track. The environment’s nature requires quickness, dexterity and power. Crew members are required to be in excellent physical condition to endure long, strenuous work hours amid race weekends in all weather conditions. You are required to have the ability to lift from a bending position 40kgs-50kgs without limitation. You are also required to lift weight above your head without limitation. Moreover, you should be capable of swiftly and accurately lifting and manoeuvring hefty objects.

We also require you to be aware of your own health and safety and for those within your race team and the public.

Our preference is for those with a mechanic, trade, engineering or racing driver experience and for those who have automotive racing crew experience.

You will need an up to date Police Clearance Certificate when working as a crew member.
