September 23 "The Sebring 14" - Anyone need some volunteer crew members?


Recommended Posts

My friend and I are starting to put together a team in the SE region for the 2018 season. We're hoping to volunteer our time during "The Sebring 14" to get some experience. We're total noobs to actual racing but definitely not new to cars. If any team is looking for some crew members we'd be glad to help out. We'd be glad to help out in any fashion for the race really but would prefer to crew to get experience running a team.

That's awesome. Thanks to both of you. 

 

Should we just show up on race day with our fire proof safety gear and head the pit area then? I'm not expecting to fuel a car on my first day but I'd think I could hold a fire extinguisher. 

 

We usually have extra crew suits on hand, reg thru xl, but bring your gear, it's like your American Express card. Don't leave home without it :lol:

 

And yes, pretty much just show up and start wandering lol.

We always have a helmet and 1 pc fire suit in "santa size" (thanks mogren for the idea)  will bring another suit, come by the 19 Infiniti "shark" pits and introduce yourself, free water and Gatorade for the jack passer and extinguisher holder.

Forget Infinity and Pinto! You'll just end up standing around and watching!  Come to our pit and you'll have plenty to do . Changing water pumps, replacing header bolts, retiming the engine after someone forgot to tighten the distributor properly, finding the plug wire that is burnt through enough to cause a "miss",  reattaching the shifter after searching for bolts and nuts that "go together", etc. The fun never stops for us!!  :)

We'll be there with a new car a few of us from EI Racing #407 are bringing out for renters. Our EI pit is good, but if you want to help out in our InActive Motorsports pit, come on over. 

Did I mention that at every Sebring race we have access and use of a private upstairs suite and catered food?

They use open flames in the second story suite? 

Seriously? 

Why would we need open flames for finger sandwiches and hors d'oeuvres? And we certainly won't heat caviar and pâté.
I rescind our even cursory consideration of your application to join us on the second floor.

Dude, totally kidding, when you hear the double knock at the door, I'll be the guy with the bottle of 2008 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières 1er Cru.

 

(I can post the Google description too - sounds like some good swill!)

in that case, our sommelier will meet you at the door.

It looks like you have lots of Chumpcar teams that have places for you guys. Great to see Chump fans willing to help out.. Please stop by today hi as well... Can always use the help if you have the extra time.. Our team should have a large balcony overlooking hairpin for Team family to watch from. Let me know if you'll have any family joining you in Sebring. MIATA - Flailing Miata/837
