Organization chart

The association ZHistole and its eight board members pull all the strings and coordinate the tasks of the different departments. Here in the CMWC Crew the essential decisions are made.

About 40 department heads make sure that everything runs smoothly, from registration and stage construction to catering and track safety. All department heads together form the CMWC team.

The closer the event gets in terms of time, the more volunteers take up their work to realize the planned activities. During the Main Race Weekend, approximately 200 CMWC volunteers will be on duty.

All participants at all levels work on a voluntary basis. No financial gain is sought, either personally or by the organization or on the part of the association.
