What got you into volunteering?
I was first introduced to volunteering about 5 years ago when I attended an MCRCWA race meeting. As I didnt have the ability to race, I thought that I could be involved as an official of some capacity. I spoke with Denise Stronach – Race Secretary and she got me into the organisation
How long have you been a volunteer with MA?
I have been a volunteer with MA for 5 years
What’s your favourite thing about volunteering?
Working with my Series Team at ASBK as we travel Australia. The comradery is unbelievable for such a high-pressured environment. Being able to be amongst some of the best of the best, in our sport, along with rubbing shoulders on an International level with MotoGP and World SBK officials and riders, gives me a buzz every time. Having also the opportunity to be diverse in many of the sports disciplines at all levels.
Most memorable moment whilst volunteering with MA?
Being able to meet 3 x Superbike World Champions Troy Bayliss, was just one of many memorable moments – Too many to list plus I’m a Ducati man, along with seeing first hand Jason Doyle crowned FIM World Speedway champion last year
Best experience as a volunteer (best event etc.)?
Being selected to attend the FIM Clerk of Course //Super license in Geneva was an incredible experience. To be amongst the world Clerks and Stewards of each motorcycle discipline was quite unbelievable and humbling.
Best advice you’ve been given?
I have been privileged to have Peter Smith – World SBK and MotoGP Clerk of course, as my main Mentor, and he always says that you must keep learning and put in the hard yards. It all takes time but it is worth it.
Anything on two wheels
Andrea Dovisioso and of course Valentino Rossi.
