Just 6 months from the arrival of the Isle of Wight road races, volunteer and pay opportunities have presented themselves for those who wish to pursue a career in motorsport.
The Isle of Wight road races are scheduled for April 2022, bringing international motorcycle races to the island for the first time ever. The IWRR aims to bring the best riders in the motorcycle racing world to the island for an event that will be one of a kind.
Road racing was effectively banned when speed restrictions were introduced on UK roads in the 1960s, but recent legislation has made it possible again. The format will be similar to the famous Isle of Man TT races which attract racing fans from all over the world and significantly boost the local tourism economy.
Newport-based marketing agency Solent is putting together a new team to help organize the event and is looking for enthusiastic and hardworking individuals to fill both volunteer and paid positions.
Tim Addison from Solent says:
âInitially we need support for our marketing team, but this will also expand over the next few months to include event management and delivery. The IWRR will create a number of new local jobs starting now.
âWe are particularly interested in offering new career opportunities to young people who live in and around the circuit. We know that the opportunities can sometimes seem a bit limited in the rural communities of the island and we want this event to add value to the Isle of Wight every step of the way â.
Initially, IWRR is looking for a Project Coordinator / Administrator who will work closely with the Head of the Communication Team. Interested persons should send an email [emailÂ protected] with ‘IWRR vacancy’ in the subject field for a job description.
