Majors at MIS

Postby Dwaine Koscielniak » Wed Mar 27, 2013 7:07 am

Looks like MIS is going to host a SCCA Race. Wanted to post this for the WMR for those that may be interested.

Event information (in car video, track map, hotel info, etc.) can be found at http://www.wmr-scca.org/club_index.php

Registration can be found at http://www.wmr-scca.motorsportreg.com/

Due to a myriad of reasons, we are limiting entries to 240 cars. This is a first year event and we didn't want to try to bite off too much of the apple. We've seen what can happen. We are allowed 55 per race group. We will wiat list entrants if it comes to that.

Also due to limited paddock space, we are using MSR to allow folks to select their paddock spots. This was a cumbersome process so the registration for the event and the selection of parking was beroken into two separate registration processes. There are directions online but, at first, it was kind of confusing (hence the beta testing).

So this is how it'll work. Step #1 is to register for the race (click on the "drivers" event) and step #2 is to select the "parking options" event. We have 64 RV spots ($25 for the weekend), 60 garage spots ($100 without adjacent trailer parking or $150 with adjacent trailer parking) and over 150 paddock spots (all free). During all of this you will only select an RV zone, garage or paddock zone to park in. We will assign you a spot upon your arrival at the track as you complete your registration. The reason is simple. We need to load these zones in a specific order. Some of these zones are tight and we don't want the first rig to block the rest of the zone's access. So the end result is this....if you want to paddock next to somebody, then you have two options. You and your neighbor can arrive at the same time OR make arrangements with the registrar ahead of time.

I know this sounds kind of tricky but bear with us as this is a first year event. If you have any questions, email me (frameh@msu.edu) and I will try and get to it as soon as possible. As you can probably understand.

That course looks vaguely familiar.

Repaved and still no apex curbs? Better not drop a wheel off.

If some Waterford Hills ITA or ITB guys sign up for STL, I'm very interested in running in STL at this event.

I just don't want to be the only car being lapped in group 6....... :roll:

This was a big problem during the Chumpcar race last year. They said it was going to be addressed for this year. I don't know that it has yet.

Will a standard SCCA competition license work, or is a Majors/National license required?

National Lic.--- It should not be too much of a problem to get one in time though.
