Delivering emergency medical services at sporting events requires unique planning, equipment, personnel, and training. The Champ Car World Series is a top-level, open wheel racing series that uses both street and open terrain road courses for events held in several different countries. Medical services are available to both drivers and support staff through the use of on site medical personnel, specialized rescue vehicles, and a traveling medical center. This article describes the process of delivering high-quality, consistent medical care in a difficult racing environment.
