    Cool Looking for fotos of F1 volunteers in action

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm not sure if it is appropriate to post such message in this thread, moderators please advice.

    I am SGP F1 voluneer and belong to Boundary Riders team. We are guys deployed on bikes around the circuit to deliver crashed drivers back to pits. We also assist in incident report delivery.

    Please take a short or two if you see a guy on the motorbike at the side to of the circuit and post it here. Usually celebreties and cars are getting the most of coverage and volunteers remain under the radar. We would greatly appreciate few pics for our memories of F1 SGP event!

    haha, if you think volunteers are getting free tickets - you are wrong!

    It was fantastic day today, I've clocked about 240 km on my bike zooming around the circuit! Priceless experience!

    They were given the YBR, think it was, 125cc. Small bikes are needed to navigate the narrow track access areas.

    Yes, you are right! We are using Yamaha YBR but there are quite a number of places that are too tight even for such small bike. And of course spectators safety comes as first priority, so we will leave wheelies for stunt riders.

    Another exciting day for volunteers!

    I've got a chance to pillion Fisichella from turn 10 and my buddy helped Alonso. Both F1 drivers were thankful and gave us a good handshake in appreciation of quick delivery to pits.

    And there still not even one picture posted...

    Great job, guys! Some of you had to stopped at the barrier fence (no thanks to the MIA security guards), get off and push the barrier away, ride pass, and put the barrier back.

    Was at turn 5, hardly any action except one during the support race.

    Wow! First shots are finally in! That's my buddy Alex on your photos. Totally dedicted on his next mission, look at his face

    The racing day was huge success for our team! I have fetched Barrichello from turn 13 all the way to the pits. He is really friendly fella, kept talking to me and giving five to all the crowd while we were passing by.

    Still looking for pics of my team fetching Kimi, Alonso, Fisichella, Webber and Barrichello. All help will be greatly appreciated!!!

    Thanks! That's our buddy's bike and helmet, he probably was patroling on foot those sectors that are not reachable by bike.

    Yesss! That was me, picked up Barrichello from turn 13. He was very friendly and kept chatting to me during our long way to pits. So many cameras were making the shots but yet got to see any of the pics.
