MAM GP & MW Memorial Day Weekend Info
« on: May 13, 2006, 06:31:34 pm »
UPCOMING MEMORIAL DAY RACE WEEKEND AT MAM
May 27/28 2006 - MAM - TrackAddix GP Race Weekend - Great Plains
and Mid West CCS sanctioned combined event.
An important reminder - the upcoming event at MAM is operated by
TrackAddix.  If you're planning to race, you must DOWNLOAD YOUR
PRE-ENTRY FORM FROM THE TRACKADDIX WEBSITE, and submit it to
TrackAddix - do not send the form to CCS, or you won't get
registered.

PRE-REGISTRATION DEADLINE
If you hate waiting in lines as much as we do, pre-paying all of
your gate, transponder rental, practice, and race entry fees
will make registration lines move faster.  Grid positions are
assigned by order of registration, so pre-registering will also
get you a better grid spot.  Pre-entries for the upcoming weekend
at MAM close on MAY 17, 2006.

TRANSPONDERS
For those of you who are interested in purchasing your very own
personal transponder, we now have them available FOR SALE.  We
have a direct-power unit that connects to your bike's battery
for $325, or the rechargeable kit is available for $365.
Quantities are limited, so let us know if you're interested in
purchasing one, or visit the TrackAddix trackside store at the
MAM event.

TRACKADDIX TEAM CHALLENGE
We hope to see a lot of you in the Team Challenge this season.
Remember, all four of the classes in Team Challenge pay cash
purses.  A few people have contacted us about pricing - just a
reminder that the $175 fee is for the entire team (not the
individual riders on the team).  So get together with your
racing buddies, split the cost, and get more race time.

TRACKADDIX PURSE PAYING SPRINT CLASSES
Three purse paying sprint classes in expert and amateur-
MWSS, HWSB and UnlGP.

Upcoming Events:
May 29, 2006 - MAM - TrackAddix Track Day and School of Speed
June 16, 2006 - HPT - CCS Race Weekend - Mid West, Great Plains
and ASRA combined event.

I'm assuming that the Heartland Park ASRA event will be a CCS controlled and pre-entered event though?

Thanks, you are correct Mike, use the CCS website/forms when pre-registering for the HPT ASRA event.

Does TrackAddix use a different type of transponder than CCS?

Are transponders handled differently with TrackAddix (as far as handout at registration, mounting, or anything else important to know)?

Thanks
Jason

Jason,

TrackAddix is using the AMB system. It is different than the transponders you are used to with other CCS regions. You can supply your own or rent one. One of the nice features of AMB is that the lap times can be posted on mylaps.com by the event, so you can view your times on the net. You can also go to mylaps to see what are the fast times per track, by class. I know WERA and CMRA also use AMB/mylaps. You will pick up your transponder at registration, not sure if the mounting clip is identical or not, we are testing the system this Thursday so I will get you more info then.

Thanks,
Randy

Randy,

Thanks for the info, I already own an AMB transponder so I'm glad I asked.  Will get it out and charged up before we leave for MAM.

Thanks
Jason

FYI.... talked with Dean yesterday.   

He said a revised daily schedule for the first MAM racing weekend should be updated on their website by today.  Shouldn't be any major changes..... just some minor tweaking to the daily time schedule and sequence of events.

We just posted an updated race day schedule specific for this weekends race.  A hardcopy of the race day schedule will be handed out to all racers when they check in at registration.  A link to a .pdf version can be found on the following page:

http://trackaddix.com/?race=1&pview=TRA-275-2006-05-27-28-GP

It also specifies the group structure for the practice sessions on Saturday.

Is there any reason we can't run the three 25 minute GT races after lunch Saturday in lieu of another single round of practice prior to th riders meeting? The riders meeting can be moved to 2:30?

That or run MW SS, LW SS, HWSS, F 40, and UNSS (in that order) after lunch Saturday? That would allow more time to substitute LW races in between races 15-17. The way it is now many of us will have 3 and 4 back to back. 6 and 7 back to back. And, 15, 16, and 17 back to back to back.
