The Rollcage Medic website is for doctors, nurses, paramedics and other motorsport rescue professionals.

The aims of the Rollcage Medic website are:

  • To promote connection and exchange amongst the motor sport medical and rescue community.
  • To provide up to date information on clinical, technical and regulatory developments in motor sports, especially where they affect medical and rescue services.
  • To provide a forum for the discussion of opinions, raising questions and sharing experience between individuals and groups with an active interest in motor sports medicine and rescue. 

Though based in Australia, motor sport agencies and individuals with an interest in motorsport medicine from anywhere are welcome to join in.
