So another Supercars weekend is over in Perth and what a massive weekend of motor sport in WA. I think the dust has settled and hopefully everyone is heading into their second night of rest and recovery.
I will dedicate this entire post to the officials and volunteers who work tirelessly in their chosen roles and, at times, they can feel like thankless jobs. However, without the dedication of many nameless officials and volunteers, no motor sport event will happen. Through rain, hail, shine, wind, cold, heat, whatever the elements want to throw at them, the volunteers and the officials show up event after event after event.
When I put on the Chief hat this weekend, I already knew I would be Chief of the very best flag marshal team. By the end of the weekend, after everything was said, after everything was done, what I thought I had known was not any where near close to what I watched over the weekend. I was so insanely proud of everyone. Proud of the individuals who gained valuable experience and new knowledge throughout the weekend. Proud of the individuals who passed on their experience and knowledge. Proud of the individuals who never stopped giving their absolute best and pushing beyond that.
But the best part of it all? Proud of the team, as a whole, as a group. Everyone stuck by each other. Everyone backed each other. And THAT is why each and every flag marshal this weekend made it an absolute pleasure to represent them as Chief Flag Marshal. So thank you.
Thank you for your dedication.
Thank you for your commitment.
Thank you for your time.
Thank you for your trust.
Thank you for your contribution to our sport.
Thank you for your passion.
Thank you for being you.
