The Trax are the track marshals for the great race. Like motorsport marshals, their job is to carry and wave the flags that start and finish races, make sure that races are safe, and help broken-down competitors.
They also tend to align with Greaseball and his gang, suggesting they may not be impartial.
Trax's origin can be traced to the Las Vegas production. The production employed Todd Lester, an ensemble member with stunt-staking experience, as 'The Flying Marshal' – a track marshal who would perform stunts in the run-up to each race.
This role was expanded upon for the 2003 US tour, with stunt skaters being formally added to the cast, and given the character name 'Trax'.
Trax roles were added to the German production in 2005.
The Trax performers wear inline-skates, rather than quad skates like the rest of the cast.
As they are stunt performers rather than actors, the Trax tend not to take part in ensemble numbers, sing or interact with many of the other characters in the show.
