Firstly, Phil, what is your role in the SGP series?
I’m the Race Director which means I have full executive control over the event from a sporting side. The track, the pits, riders, the FIM jury, that’s all under my jurisdiction. It’s my job to make sure that the track is safe to ride, that the pits are safe and meet all the criteria they need to, the rules are followed, the electrics work, the tapes work as they should, the radios, air fences – everything!
Then during the meeting it’s my job to make sure it runs smoothly and on time and that everyone is as safe as possible – it’s not easy!
