Some hookers work the corners for years man. The only requirements is loose morals.

You can cornerwork at a trackday to earn credit towards riding with that organization. You can either cornerwork for half a day and ride free of charge for the second half of the day, or you can cornerwork an entire day and have a full day credit with to ride all day on a later date.

Pretty straight forward flagging rules, black for a specific rider, red if someone is down and in the way of riders/impact zone/needs assistance right away, or yellow flag for run-offs that don't require the session to end but need to give everyone a headsup. Some tracks use a yellow and red striped flag for debris on track...others use other flags but it's all known ahead of time what is what.

Hope that helps.

Sounds like a great way to get track time. Plus you get to see the riders close up.
Does the list for Corner workers fill up pretty quickly?

J-Lo on here heads up the cornerworker program for LSTD, you may want to PM him. There are usually a few spots open.

Pretty much none.
They'll tell you what you need to do for the day.

Sorry, dude.
You are all by yourself.
I'll make sure I make more troubles around your corner.
