Volunteers at the Rexall Grand Prix of Edmonton can expect perks like exclusive seating, free beverages, parties and even exclusive track access.


As organizers expect to see 200,000 motorsport fans descend on Edmonton’s downtown airstrip this weekend, they still need at least 50 more volunteers.


“We still have some spots available for people who want to be behind the scenes this weekend,” said Edmonton Grand Prix volunteer recruitment manager Jim Barr.


Additional perks for volunteers include free exclusive Grand Prix loot, including two T-shirts, a hat and backpack, along with a volunteer wrap-up party after the final World Champ Car Series race.


People looking to become volunteers are asked to phone the Grand Prix of Edmonton’s site office at 442-7233.
