How to be part of the action(without buying a rally car)
Like any rally,the Granite City Rally depends on a large army of volunteers to work behind the scenes on the event organisation.
In the months leading up to the event a team of enthusiasts give up their spare time to spend long hours organising every last detail for this major sporting event.
On the day of the rally itself this number swells to hundreds as more enthusiastic volunteers man the stages, the radio systems, the time controls and rally headquarters.
Thousands of times are recorded, relayed by radio back to headquarters where they are input into a sophisticated computer system to produce the interim and final results. Radio points at the start and finish and at points through the stages keep a check on the competitors for safety reasons.
The marshals on each stage look after the time keeping and oversee yours and the competitors’ safety.
All these are vital jobs which ensure the smooth running of the event.
