    shuttle bus assembly area within the stipulated time We had to ensure that the shuttle bus driver was driving within the stated speed limit because our track marshals were on the track to check for any debris during this time period Safety of our race officials is the most important It is indeed a very memorable experience last year I definitely feel proud to be part of the working team I am looking forward for 2012 event to meet all my friends whom I have worked with previously Richard Kwok Observer Sector 8 6L 9R As I did different roles during the previous years it gave me a steady

Also to lend a hand to the seniors promoting cohesiveness and camaraderie team and to better manage the sector efficiently Sunny Chan Observer Sector 8 6L 9R SGP 2011 was my second consecutive year participation in the SGP I was and Observer for both events Being the eyes and ears for Race Control creates both a sense of belonging and responsibility to this world class event I was assigned to Sector 9 8 6 And I was with a fellow Observer at the FIA Light Panel We took turns to put on the head set The one with the head set concentrated on the overall view of the passing cars whilst looking out for possible violations and giving instructions to the panel operator while communicating with Race Control The other focused on the identification condition and sequence of the cars passing by Together we exchanged notes whenever there was an incident to report to Race Control We recognize that accuracy and timeliness information is essential for Race Control to make the right decisions I am excited about the upcoming SGP 2012 and would like to contribute in whatever capacity the Organisers deem fit I am looking forward to meeting new challenges as we continue to make Singapore SGP the Best among the Best in F1 2012 Many of my friends asked me why I volunteered without any monetary rewards I told them that once the money is taken out of the equation what is left is the passion for the sport seeing the cars pass me at neck breaking speed within meters of where I am standing the unmistakable loud roar of the 2 4L V8 engines and the smell of burnt tires and recognizing that the safety of the drivers are in my hands is enough to send one to ecstasy Moreover to top it up I had the opportunity to working together with my teammates as one great team of Flag Track and Fire marshals Observers Medics and Recovery personnel The friendship and trust established lives on forever One thing is for sure nothing beats being part of the SGP Team that makes it happen Peter Leong Track Marshal Sector 13 8 It s already an honour to be part of the most prestigious event in Singapore The Singapore Grand Prix 2011 What more as a Track Marshall the privilege of walking the race track and getting close up to the F1 cars and drivers is beyond what words can describe In 2011 there were many who signed up as a marshal in Singapore Grand Prix but only 1 out of 8 was chosen to be part of the team The experience was wonderful as there were always new things to learn in every training session from classroom to track Even during the actual event we were still practicing debris runs I treasure the experiences and enjoyed every moment from the start of the gathering at the tent to have lunch together with my team mates until the end of the race Even the smell of the burnt tires as the cars zoomed passed me was exciting I have a very good Sector Chief whom has bonded the team from the start Until today we are still keeping in touch through facebook I will definitely return in 2012 to reunite with my fellow team mates and volunteer as a Race Official for 2012 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX Jacklyn Tow Flag Marshal Sector 2 2L 3R It was another exciting and memorable year for me in 2011 Singapore Grand Prix That was my second year as a race official It was wonderful to see that most of the teammates were back again last year Everyone took up their roles and responsibilities seriously even though we were volunteers We grow up together as one big family by sharing and helping one another Let s make it happens again in 2012 THE 2010 EXPERIENCE Our 3rd year and it only gets BETTER September 2010 saw the Formula One teams visit our shores for the 15th round of the 2010 Formula One World Championship This is the third year that the Formula One cars took to the streets of the Marina Bay Street Circuit and boy did we have a race like no other The race under the lights saw 8 retirements 2 safety car periods and the future Driver s World Champion on the podium for the first time in Singapore It was a race to savor for the 1000 Race Officials it was a race to remember it was a race that was truly and uniquely Singapore The Singapore Race Officials did an excellent job in 2010 and it was clear that their intensive training program paid off handsomely Congratulations to everyone involved in making the event such a success Charlie Whiting FIA Formula One Race Director A very BIG BIG BIG THANK YOU to each and every one of you for all the hard work that was put in over the months leading up to the 2010 Singapore Grand Prix I believe the numerous trainings have paid off and it showed during the 2010 Singapore Grand Prix The FIA personnel were very happy and we have received comments that this is the best GP I have attended so far this year Words cannot express how proud I am of you right now Our execution was flawless our blue flagging was perfect and spot on and recovery was so quick it was over in a blink of an eye Keep up the good work and I ll see everyone back in 2011 Janette Tan Chief Marshal As a Senior Race Official and part of the CAMS International Training Team I have the advantage of observing Officials development within motorsport In the 3 years that I have been associated with the Singapore Grand Prix the enthusiasm and commitment shown by the SGP Trainers and Senior Race Officials from Singapore is to be applauded The growth of Official s knowledge and expertise of motorsport protocols has shone through especially in 2010 with the extra emphasis on trackside vehicle recovery training which was implemented and proved to be beneficial to the overall event s success This year I was extremely proud to see a number of Singapore Officials attend the inaugural Korean Grand Prix to improve their skills They were all utilized in senior positions and proved that they were capable to cope with any situation presented and worked well in conjunction with the CAMS International Training Team Over the past 3 years a bond in motorsport has developed that has united Singaporeans and Australians in a unique circumstance and we have learned about each others cultures which also has been an experience in itself As a mentor I will be always available to answer any queries give advice or receive feedback and look forward to working beside the Singaporean officials in the future Terry O Callaghan Sector Marshal Mentor 11L Being part of the SGP Senior Race Officials Group since 2008 has brought me much joy and pleasure year upon year as I look forward to the next Singapore Grand Prix in 2011 The bond of friendship forged with Race Officials during each GP is something I would not trade with anything else Sharing knowledge and the joys of motor sports with like minded race officials is an experience like no other You have to really experience it yourself to truly understand this feeling that I sure all Race Officials will agree with The joys and excitement of preparing for a GP doesn t end on Sunday of race week but starts all over again as we give our best and start preparing all over again for the next This is what keeps Race Officials going Find this hard to comprehend Well you need to be part of this elite group that we call the Race Officials to fully understand and experience what we do and look forward to do again year after year If I had to choose one word to describe a Race Official it would have to be PASSION Gordon Lit Chief National Scrutineer It seems only yesterday when our inaugural Formula One race lit up the Marina Bay Street Circuit and now the race has come to its 3rd year I would like to share on how my experiences in watching Formula One races changed over the years Prior to 2008 eyes glued onto the TV screen following every car around the circuits sometimes falling asleep when one car dominated 2008 First hand experience trackside lots of stuffs running through my mind especially with my priority on my fellow Officials safety Grabbed every possible opportunity to learn from our experienced CAMS Officials 2009 Started to watch races with more attention paid to trackside Marshals What they did what their reactions were during incidents It was no longer important who was leading the pack or the world championship but thoughts like what should the individual marshal do occupied my mind 2010 Watched the races and found myself simulating communication calls to Race Control whenever there was an incident on the screen My wife has been wondering whether I ve been possessed the past year 2011 Shave my head bald You will know what this means when you join us as a Race Official Aron Ang Sector Marshal Sector 17R My interest in Formula One started when I was very young It was in 1986 and the race to the championship was very tight like this year s when Nigel Mansell blew his tyre blew at the Australian Grand Prix I remember watching that incident live with my dad and we were both screaming at the unfortunate incident for Mansell on a Sunday afternoon Little did I know that being a volunteer for the Singapore Grand Prix would relive those memories How so I was sent to Adelaide for Senior Officials training this year and the turn where I was assigned to was exactly where Mansell blew his tyre However I did not have the time to reminisce much as we had much more things to worry about as Race Officials In this event there are also plenty of chances to know not only CAMS officials THEY ARE ALWAYS GREAT but other foreign race officials and get to know more about the motorsports culture in their country No other volunteer experience is as good as this Jonathan Chen Sector Marshal Sector 13R Except for a little rain this year the event was a complete success With the support of all CAMS Officials over the past 3 years the Singapore Officials have shown they have put all their training into reality and the future of the Singapore Grand Prix is in good hands Well done Singapore I look forward to being part of the Singapore Grand Prix team in 2011 as a volunteer official from Australia and look forward to working with all the Singapore Officials that have become my life long friends during the past 3 years For all SGP Race Officials you have shown over the past 3 years that you have put together a world class event and the future of the Singapore Grand Prix is in excellent hands I would personally like to thank everyone who has supported me over the past 3 years and our continued friendship outside of motor racing I wish you all the success for 2011 Kevin Hind Sector Marshal Mentor 2010 Singapore Grand Prix is THE YEAR for Singapore motorsports From year to year expectation for us to perform is being raised From structured training to the event proper we deliver them to our fullest The spirit amongst the volunteers is beyond comparable We definitely live up to the title Jewel of the East Jefri Masri Sector Marshal Sector 21R The 2010 Singapore Grand Prix was an even more unforgettable experience than the 2009 edition Again I felt proud privileged and extremely happy that I had the opportunity to contribute in this unique event An event that even Bernie Ecclestone called the jewel in the crown I am very thankful to the Event Organisers for the trust they placed in me and they gave me more responsibilities as a Deputy Sector Marshal this year and I hope I didn t let them down Also I must say I was extremely fortunate and immensely rewarded by having to opportunity to work with such a wonderful team of Race Officials and I look forward to work with them again in the future As a Deputy Sector Marshal at 6 8L I was again right next to the action which is a feeling and experience I would never trade for anything else The closeness to the whole Grand Prix experience of seeing the Formula One cars sliding drifting and bouncing as they negotiate the notorious Turn 7 the engine brake and rubber smells the sounds of the glorious Formula One engines the vibration of the ground as they zoomed past at 300kph the fastest point of the circuit the crowds and the overall atmosphere images sensations and memories that will stay with me for the rest of my life I am counting down with excitement for the 2011 Singapore Grand Prix and keeping up with all the Formula One news With overflowing anticipation I look forward to my chance to contribute again to meet my friends buddies mentors and my team to continue to learn new skills and live an even more exciting experience in the 2011 Singapore Grand Prix Lucas Karatzas Deputy Sector Marshal Sector 6 8L My experience for the 2010 Singapore Grand Prix as a Race Official has been awesome It gave me an opportunity to serve and help out alongside the rest of the Race Officials to make the race a huge success This year gave me a new learning experience in operating the FIA Light Panels as the year goes by it s always something new and a great learning process I m thankful for the honour to serve Kelvin Singh Flag Marshal Sector 6L I signed up as a volunteer when I chanced upon the opportunity on the website on the Singapore Grand Prix I was thrilled by the advertisement on Channel 5 as I wanted to be at the race circuit to feel the excitement of being a Race Official in the event I had fond memories of my childhood when I watched my first motor racing in the 1960s at Old Upper Thomson Road The racing was really exciting to watch then and my favourites then were the Japanese drivers I was excited when I received an email informing me that I was selected for the role as a Trainee Race Official I attended all the classroom theory lessons and I thought all that was very useful and enriching for me But the practical lesson at the Pasir Gudang Circuit in Malaysia was a most memorable one We had hands on lessons on flagging and reminded to observe all safety protocols I was very excited when it came to the actual event The sound of the racing cars and the atmosphere was simply amazing At the end of the event I was tired but happy that I was given this opportunity to volunteer for the event Thanks to the organizers we enjoyed ourselves at the Post Race Appreciation Party for the Race Officials David Teh Flag Marshal Sector 1R 2010 was the third year for me as a Race Official It was the most dramatic eventful and exciting of all the Singapore Grands Prix so far I was a Recovery Specialist at Sector 7 8 Starting from the Formula One Qualifying sessions we saw action in every event from that point on I had the opportunity to recover Felipe Massa s Ferrari and Lewis Hamilton s McLaren I was lucky to be up close with the drivers and observe the emotional side of the drivers the disappointment and frustration The Recovery team was voted the best team for 2010 and I was proud of be part of it Overall the experience was very fulfilling As always I am looking forward to the 2011 Singapore Grand Prix and hope to contribute further to its grand success Sriram Ramanujam Recovery Specialist Sector 8L Well what can I say The Singapore Grand Prix just multiplies in excitement year after year and 2010 was no exception This was especially so with the championship going down to the wire Rotating from various sectors and through different positions has allowed me to appreciate the race even more Race Officials in my sector were top class and ably led by a very ON Sector Marshal who held a very tight ship and we were all the better for it ALL I CAN SAY IS Bring on 2011 I can t fathom September without the Grand Prix I have always locked up the 5 days in September for this Without Singapore Grand Prix how will I fill the VOID Well I am not taking any chances with my leave Come 1st January 2011 I will lock in my leave for September That is my commitment to you So Singapore Grand Prix ALLOW ME TO COME BACK FOR 2011 Barry Ryan Shah Flag Marshal Sector 19L This is my first experience as a Race Official for a Grand Prix I was terribly excited and nervous on the first race day but quickly fitted in comfortably into my role as an observer This was partly made possible by encouraging and helpful teammates I had so much fun throughout the event It was a very good experience as well as an eye opener for me Being so close to the Formula One cars was terribly exciting I also felt very motivated and proud of my role as an observer Karen Yow Observer Sector 14 5L Our sector was situated at Sector 0R in 2010 Right at the Start Finish line We got the closest to everything from the racing action to the Formula One cars drivers SingTel Grid Girls In the dying seconds of the main race a fiery Lotus stopped right in front of us We scrambled to get our fire extinguishers out and standby for action OOOOH How close to the action

Officials Daryl Karl Ambat and Jac who provided us with 101 guidance and let the newbie like myself to take up the task Ready for 2011 Singapore Grand Prix Philip Lee Pit Grid Marshal 2010 Singapore Grand Prix was my first time being a Race Official Having missed the past two recruitments it was the one opportunity I treasured The best experience was not the fast cars but how well we worked together to make the Grand Prix a good time for ourselves the teams and spectators You can take weeks months to establish good teamwork at the workplace but it took less than 3 days to bond as a sector Looking back it was simply amazing I m definitely going to be back in 2011 Why Because I love being a flag marshal Serene Chan Flag Marshal Sector 11L It was my first year with Singapore Grand Prix as a Race Official and people often asked me if I was happy being a Scrutineer in the Support Categories whereas being a Formula One Scrutineer is more rewarding and glamorous My answer is a big YES In fact we have to double up role to provide support to the Formula One Scrutineers and being able to handle logistics follow up on their behalf while they have to focus serving the individual teams to ensure a smooth My experience as a Support Categories Scrutineer was very rewarding I could now appreciate the work and efforts going into the running the Singapore Grand Prix It adds another level of dimension when I am watching Formula One or any Support Races which intrigues you to look for details and last but not least the bond I have with the team is tighter and if opportunities given I will definitely love to serve the Singapore Grand Prix team again in 2011 and as a Support Categories Scrutineer Don Leow Scrutineer Support Categories This was my second year as a Race

back in 2011 to re experience this spirit I am most appreciative of the way the Event Organiser has made Singapore s tweaks to the management of the Race Officials and organization of the race Most notable is the way logistics specifically drinks are handed and the availability of an additional comms set for the observers in the sector specifically the large sectors This has certainly helped with communications among all Race Officials in my sector Choo Kok Fah Lead Observer Sector 1R I can see the improvements made through these three years of the Singapore Grand Prix and I am glad to be part of the 2008 2009 and now the 2010 FORMULA 1 SingTel Singapore Grand Prix Every year is a new experience for me be it the seasoned team members or newbies I felt that each and every one had played a part or two Raymond Low Observer Sector 9 5L It just feels like yesterday when I first participated for the 2009 Singapore Grand Prix In a blink of an eye the 2010 edition has just ended It was fantastic to meet up with old friends and being in a new role Track Marshal Reliving the same high adrenalin rush of being in a race and together with old and new friends really made my day at the 2010 Singapore Grand Prix Looking forward to an exciting and memorable 2011 Singapore Grand Prix Joshua Thio Track Marshal Sector 20L This is my first year as a Race Official and I would like to say that everyone that contributed had done a marvellous job The training sessions and the Race Weekend were tiring yet fun filled and exciting We took care of each other despite seeing each other only a few times in a year as we knew that we were working towards a common goal I am looking forward to the 2011 session and to be a Race Official again maybe with a different location and role This will enable me to learn more about the race and hence contribute to it even more Ho Wa Ng Track Marshal Sector 14 5L It has been 3 months since we ve last heard the roars of the Formula One engines on our shore For us Race Officials it has never died nor ceased Now it s part of our music that we hear every day Withdrawal symptoms we call it Allocated to Sector 11 which saw the stall of Vitantonio Liuzzi s vehicle had etched an amazing memory of being able to do what most of us hard core Formula One fans would like to do that is to be on the hot track and get your hands on the car itself All the training handsomely paid off when we heard that the 2010 Singapore Grand Prix was declared a success The amount of satisfaction pride greatly overcame all the obstacles that we ve faced during our stint It s a once a lifetime opportunity I would be looking forward to being able to contribute to the upcoming 2011 Singapore Grand Prix as well as other International Events like the Australian Grand Prix and the Korean Grand Prix I urge fellow Fans Officials who are passionate towards motorsports to give yourself an opportunity to be a part of history Be a Race Official Tan Kian Leong Track

event the highlight of the racing calendar Timothy Khoo Jones Track Marshal Sector 7R 2010 was the 3rd year that I was involved in the Singapore Grand Prix And I have to say the experience was no less exciting For the first time we got to work with our own Race Officials in the Manitou cranes and it was in itself a great experience The training module has also been revamped in my opinion for the better as I feel that it gives a 1st time Race Official a better understand of the process and much better hands on experience as compared to the 1st two years I have friends who wonder why I put myself through 4 gruelling days not counting the trainings instead of just enjoying myself on the spectator stands My answer is simple no one else can get as close to the action as us We are special Kelvin Tong Recovery Specialist Sector 20L 2010 Singapore Grand Prix was my first experience as a track marshal and it was an eye opener Seeing people from all walks of life coming together working

service as a returning Race Official Sabrina Quek Track Marshal Sector 13 8R As Race Official in the 2010 Singapore Grand Prix I felt that it was an event worth the time spent and definitely an eye

General Officials Module conducted in May with great anticipation It was an eye opening experience and I have looked forward to every training session since then One of the major highlight of the training was the Mini Shakedown in Pasir Gudang and it helped to apply what we learnt in the classroom into the track This was also when we got to meet our Sector Marshal and fellow Race Officials

of Marina Bay 27 th September 2009 will be remembered in history as the first year that the Singaporeans took over the helm from our Australian counterparts This was a race that was truly and uniquely Singapore And what an event it was The pride and passion within the Race Officials corps was evident throughout the weekend Below we present some of their thoughts on the 2009 experience After a full year of preparing for the Singapore Grand Prix preparations seeing the chequered flag being waved that night was truly overwhelming 2009 marked the year when the Singaporeans took full control The endless weekend trainings and late night preparations was definitely worth it It was a spectacular race and nothing can take that away from us I would like to sincerely thank the Trainers Senior and Race Officials for sacrificing so much of their precious time The Singapore Grand Prix wouldn t have been such a success without your endless sacrifice enthusiasm support and encouragement And now

improvements made in all areas compared to 2008 All the guys in the sector were enthusiastic at the event and gave their best I look forward to the 2010 SGP as it is a truly Singapore style event Aron Ang Senior Official Deputy Sector Marshal Sector 4 2R We already made history in 2008 with the first ever night race and in 2009 the Singapore Race Officials made history by running the race within
