I had worked the Miller WSBK race in 09 and some guys I met there told me to work a Moto GP as it was first class. They were right , the people running the show (USAC & Sandy Byrnes) did a great job. It was my first time in flagging and I really enjoyed it.
Your day starts very early, leaving the hotel (Jameson Inn) around 6am, morning meeting at the track approx. 6:30 with some snacks , juice etc. , in position by 7 am ( I was about 3/4 way down pit lane) hook up and test all your com equipment , land line head set, FM radio head set, sort out flags etc. They bring you a cooler with ice and water and they bring you lunch. You have a full day with a few min between action for restroom breaks etc. Ending around 5:30 or so each day , getting all your gear back to the morning start point by riding trams. Then a great evening meal with your co-works at a very nice patio area at the golf course club house beside the track. Great conversation with some of the coolest folks you would ever meet. Back to the hotel around 8 pm, shower watch a little TV, get some sleep and repeat the next day
Yes its a grind, yes its hot, but if you love moto racing, its the place to be ! They always need volunteers, if they have another Indy GP next year I will post all the info for workers here.
