In 2016, Formula Student Germany (FSG) will be held at the Hockenheimring in Germany for the eleventh time. FSG has always thrived on the enthusiastic support of a large number of volunteers, our so-called "Red Shirts". These people play an important role in making FSG the successful event which it came to be - by passing on their motivation and enthusiasm to all the teams, guests and sponsors they make the spirit of Formula Student touchable for everyone.

Over the years the event has grown significantly, from 40 teams in the beginning, to 115 participating teams now! This number of participants is posing a big challenge for all involved to have everything run smoothly as we will be working on limits of our capacity.

This is why for the Formula Student Germany 2016 we are now looking for volunteers that will help us making the event another unforgettable one for all its participants.

So whether you have toyed with the idea of founding your own Formula Student team at your university or you already have started with a team but didn't finish your car yet, whether have a car ready for competition but unfortunately are still on the waiting list because of popular demand, or you already have finished university, left your old formula student team and just miss Formula Student and the spirit that goes with it, then you are more than welcome to JOIN OUR TEAM OF RED SHIRTS 2016!!!

The event will take place from August 9th to August 14th 2016, whereas the buildup kick-off will already start in the evening of Sunday August 7th. In order to familiarize you with the different jobs and to deploy you during the whole event, it is required that you are able to attend during the whole event. Your job as Red Shirt ends on Monday 15th at 14:00 after wrap up. You have the choice to either spend the nights in a hotel in Schwetzingen in double bed rooms or to stay on the campground with all the other teams right next to the Hockenheimring. Either one will be paid for you by Formula Student Germany as well as food and beverages (camping equipment cannot be provided by us). Needless to mention the big party on Sunday night, which you will attend as a special guest.

In case you only find time to volunteer during the weekend, we encourage you to apply as "weekend volunteer". For this, it is obligatory that you a) had been active in a FSG team before and b) that you are able to attend this years' event from Friday 18:00 till Sunday 21:00.

We demand from you that you are motivated, cooperative and reliable and that you do not hesitate to converse in English language. Don't be afraid if you are not a native speaker: The English you learned in school will do - but you must be willing to apply it! Days are going to be long, very long. And really exhausting. But we promise you that you will not regret your decision to help out as a Red Shirt at FSG 2016 in Hockenheim!

If you are interested, then please login and fill out the application form. The application deadline is March 31st.

In case we receive more applications than what we need, a selection will be made – applicants with Formula Student experience will be preferred. However, we will inform you as soon as possible (until mid of May latest).

Formula Student Germany is looking forward to welcome you as part of the FSG team!
