Patroon Needs you!

Our Volunteer / worker program allows you to earn “credits” in dollar values to lessen your expense for future events, or even make it free for you.  We have various positions available from assisting at Registration and Tech at certain events , working the grid / staging area all the way up to the Grid chief / Chief steward position. (We also need a pit out person(s) for our Lime Rock events.)

Some of these positions can be shared during an event which would allow you to drive as well and save a few dollars. And if you are really serious think of it as an apprenticeship for an open Grid Chief/ Chief Steward position where there are more responsibilities and built-in incentives.

If you would like to volunteer then sign up on the regular Event Registration located at patroon.motorsportreg.com and indicate what specialty you would like to volunteer for.

**PLEASE NOTE** – We typically do not let novice entrants volunteer in order to make sure they can fully focus on learning and the safety aspects of the driving school. We will reach out to those who have volunteered prior to the event to verify your participation.

Thank you to our Sponsors!
