TARGA OFFICIALS ROLES

 

Targa Stage Teams are made up of 13 team members who work work together to deliver a stage each day throughout the entirety of the event.

 

The Targa system still uses officials who are only available for one day in road closure roles.

 

Supporting the Stage Teams are the Communications Officials.

 

Stage Director

- Responsible for the running of designated Targa Stages

- Ensures the Stage Management Team and all stage official positions are appropriately filled and trained

- Sets up, operates and dismantles the assigned Targa Stage start control and officials

- Manages the Command Net cellular mobile telephone systems

- Oversees the distribution and collection of all stage equipment

 

Deputy Stage Director

- Sets up, operates and dismantles the assigned Targa Stage finish and stop point control and officials

- Manages the Command Net cellular mobile telephone system from the stop point

- Reports abnormal incidents to Command, and addresses competitor enquiries

 

Safety Manager 1

- Activates the stage spectator plan in conjunction with the Stage Director

- Manages Targa stage Safety Officials

- Erects caution boards, direction arrows and any other signage on the stage

- Ensures all stage set-up arrangements, with particular attention to safety taping and tagging, fully comply with the stage plan and schedule, and that stage compliance is confirmed to the Stage Director

- In the event of a start failure, manually starts competitors

 

Finish Tracker

Finish Rallysafe Operator

- Monitors the actual finish time of competitors

 

Communications Official

The Communications Team consists of two groups of officials.  Officials on an SOS point record the passage of competition vehicles through the stage.  They also provide the means for competition vehicles to stop and report any incidents within the stage.  Officials at a relay point set up and operate a repeater, which provides communication between the Start and Stop Point on stages where direct communication is not possible.

 

Road Closure

Where the closed roads join roads that are still open to the public, Road Closure Officials are positioned to assist the public with information.  This may consist of alternate routes or road closure times, rally protocols or general information about the rally (as road closures can become small spectator points for locals).  It helps to have good communication skills in this role.  Any person over the age of 16 with a trainee officials licence can be a Road Closure Official, if supervised by an official holding a general licence.
