DETROIT (WJBK) -- Grand Prix officials are accepting applications for volunteers interested in joining the Detroit Grand Prix Association (DGPA) for the upcoming May 30-June 1, 2014 event.

Now in its 31st year, the DGPA is the official volunteer organization of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.

The DGPA is looking for 100 volunteers for the event, with the biggest need being circuit marshals.

Volunteers in the department will be positioned closest to the race circuit as they will work in teams to help control and assist with pedestrian and vehicle flow adjacent to the Belle Isle track.  Some volunteer teams will manage the traffic flow within the venue, including race team and various support vehicles.

A typical day begins at 6:30-7:00 a.m. and will last until 7:00 p.m., with volunteers divided into two overlapping shifts of approximately 7.5 hours each throughout race weekend.

The Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix requires a commitment to work one shift per day of the race weekend, attendance at a volunteer training session and a membership fee of $15 to join the DGPA.

Volunteers will receive the official volunteer uniform, hat,  race credential, free lunch, DGPA patch, lapel pin and a certificate of appreciation.

To become a volunteer for the 2014 Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix visit www.detroitgp.com, or contact Hannah Deacon with Volunteer Services at hdeacon@detroitgp.com or (313) 748-1801.
