BCC’s Head of Operations and BMC Director, Chingiz Mehdiyev urged everyone to hurry up to join 2017 Marshaling Programme: "Last summer, we have successfully hosted the inaugural Formula 1 Grand Prix in Baku. Our marshals took a great responsibility for performing their duties professionally and for making an invaluable contribution to the organization of the first-ever race weekend at a high level.
At the end of the race, thousands of people had approached us with a request to become a marshal for the next season of Formula 1. Taking into account a number of requests, today we have announced the launch of the Marshals’ recruitment campaign for the 2017 Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
