ERC celebrates FIA Volunteers Day

12/05/2017 12:00

The FIA European Rally Championship is celebrating the inaugural FIA Volunteers Day, which is being promoted at six headline race events today.

Acknowledging those who dedicate their time to make motorsport possible around the world, FIA Volunteers Day will raise awareness and give thanks to the volunteers who carry out the wide variety of essential roles without which the events would simply not happen.

Throughout the day, the entire motorsport community – from volunteers and officials to fans, drivers and members of the media – are encouraged to join in and show their appreciation on social media. Using the hashtag #FIAVolunteersDay on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, people can share photos and stories of themselves in action on the day connecting motorsport volunteers at all levels from all around the world – from club events to world championships.

“This is an opportunity to embrace the day as an occasion to thank all volunteers who support our events at all levels,” said FIA President Jean Todt. “It will also promote the positive benefits that they gain from their involvement in motorsport, and help attract new people to get involved. It is important for the FIA to give the appropriate recognition and publicity to acknowledge that each volunteer’s commitment is essential in ensuring the safety and success of every motorsport event.”

One of the main aims of the day is to encourage new volunteers to the sport, and those interested in registering are advised to contact their local ASN. A list of ASNs, as well as the FIA Volunteers Day resources, which includes a promotional video can be found at: http://www.fia.com/2017-fia-volunteers-day-resource-page.
