The St John Ambulance (Operations Branch) crewed several 4 Wheel Drive First Aid Unit with personnel on board each unit

Some assistance is supplied every year by several dedicated members of the other Divisions of St John.

There is always Communications, Timing & Control Keepers which play an important part of the event and these tasks are carried out by numerous persons who usually specialise in this field.

In the pits at Main Control, there is always family & friends of the riders who take great interest to see how their favourite rider is progressing, but no one is allowed to assist any of the riders.
