Becoming a motorsport official is the best way of getting close to the action without being in the drivers seat. Volunteer officials are a vital part of motorsport and without them the sport could not function. Officials ensure that events are conducted safely, fairly and that the rules and regulations are upheld.

Motorsport Australia provides a number of training courses and programs to accredit volunteer officials under the NOP. This ensures officials have the correct knowledge and skill set required for the role they perform.
