MotorSport New Zealand has commemorated its unsung heroes with the official launch of national volunteer week which celebrates the collective contribution of those people that enrich the country through their generosity and passion.
Countless motorsport officials across the country often have their contributions overshadowed by the success of our racing heroes and their on-track achievements.
However, national volunteers’ week, which MotorSport New Zealand celebrates annually, aims to bring light to the unsung champions that are undoubtedly the lifeline of the sport and ensure our favourite racers can continue pursuing their aspirations.
MotorSport New Zealand work in collaboration with the MSNZ Volunteers Advisory Commission to utilise public campaigns such as the annual New Zealand Volunteers Week to help promote the role of volunteers in motorsport and express their appreciation for the endless hours of dedication to motor racing.
The MSNZ Volunteers Advisory Commission is one of seven commissions all staffed by volunteers who work on the regulations, processes and protocols specific to the marshalling and volunteering area of the sport.
The commission ensures volunteers are managed well, are trained for their role, looked after and are recognised for their ungrudging contributions to the sport.
A short video published by MotorSport New Zealand today commemorates the opening of national volunteers week and can be seen below:
