2015 Dates :  Mojave Magnum, April 11-12             Fall event: TBD


The Mojave Mile

Standing Mile racing is now the hottest form of racing on the West coast!

 

That’s right – standing-start, flat out speed, as fast as you can go in ONE MILE!

(or maybe even a mile-and-a-half)

Held in conjunction with the Mojave Air and Space Port in Mojave, CA, the Mojave Mile is the latest, fastest, and best venue for Standing Mile type racing. Mojave features a smooth, 12,500’ runway, with up to a mile of shutdown distance, the latest in accurate electronic timing equipment, a top-notch staff of experienced professionals and safety response teams, and a huge overnight-secured Paddock area with P.A. system and food.  Our Mojave Magnum variant even allows you to go for a full 1.5 miles!

 

The Mojave Mile and Magnum are open to both cars and motorcycles. Mark your calendar to attend one of the most exciting racing venues in the country!

 

MKM is pleased to announce the 2015 running of the 1.5-mile Mojave Magnum! This event will be held on April 11-12, 2015.  It will be at the usual location, the Mojave Air and Space Port in Mojave, CA.  All runs at this event will be 1.5 miles; there will be no separate 1-mile runs like last time.  However, we are planning to have an intermediate speed trap at the 1-mile mark on the course.  Assuming that happens, those 1-mile trap speeds will be eligible for our Mile records and speed clubs.  (They can also cause breakouts, so be careful!)  Both speeds will be printed on the speed slips.  We won't be issuing any separate 1-mile results or trophies.  1-mile speed certificates will only be available by special request, after the event, and must be purchased separately.

 

Cancellation deadline approaching

Naturally we don't want you to have to cancel out of the April event, but if that is even a remote possibility for you, you need to be aware of an upcoming date.  That date is March 28.  If you cancel on that date (up until midnight) or before, you can get a full fee refund (less the processing charge).  However, if you cancel on March 29th or later, you can only get a 50% fee refund.  We just wanted to be sure that you knew.

 

Late Fees start soon, too

That same date (Sunday, Mar. 29) is when Late Fees will start to be automatically added to the entry fees.  These are $50 for two-day and $30 for one-day entries.  Remember that these also apply to anyone that has already entered but hasn't yet paid.  Most everyone has paid already, and we thank you for that, but there are a few that are still unpaid.  If that's you, pay up by midnight PDT Saturday night (Mar. 28) to avoid the increase.

 

Mojave Magnum April 2015 - Event is (not quite) Sold Out!

Our entries were previously limited to 110 people per day. We started taking online entries on Feb.9, and we quickly sold out.  After re-evaluating the situation, on March 17 we were able to add 5 more spots on Saturday and 10 more on Sunday.  The extra Saturday spots are already gone. There are, however, still 2 or 3 spots left for Sunday.  To enter, go to mojavemile.motorsportreg.com and put an entry into our system; if we are sold out, this will automatically place you onto our waiting list.  There are usually a few cancellations before the event, and these spots will be filled from the waiting list.  There is no charge for putting your name on the list, but you need to be prepared to pay your fees immediately if your name gets called up.  We will contact you directly if and when that happens.

 

Thank to all of you for making this event a success!  Hope to see you at Mojave in April!

 

A fall event in 2015 is looking very unlikely.  If that changes, we will let you know.

 

Policy Change for 2015

We have decided to change our policy regarding new entries being taken at the track itself on race day.  Specifically, this will no longer be available.  You will not be able to "just show up" at the airport and enter the event.  Also, new "extra" drivers/riders will not be able to be added on at the track.  All entrants must be registered on line no later than the evening before their first day of competition.  The only registration activity done at the track itself will be check-in of entrants who are already registered.

 

This is a significant change from our previous policy so we thought it deserved a spot on the front page.  Since we are nearly sold out this is probably a moot point anyway, but we are very busy with other vital tasks while at the track and with our limited personnel, we realized it no longer made sense to continue the frankly disruptive practice of allowing people to walk in unannounced and enter in the middle of race day.

 

If this affects you in a negative way, we apologize.  If we're not sold out, you can still pre-register and pay online the day before the race (up until midnight), and get your tire and other manual forms filled out. Then you can just show up early in the AM (by 7 AM for rookies) at the track for check-in and Tech.

 

This policy change has caused several documents to need updating; see below.

 

2015 Rule Book and documents - updated (again)

All of our documents for 2015 are on our Downloads page here.  Several documents have just (2/21/15) been updated yet again due to the above mentioned policy change; please be sure to update your copies.  We also just (3/17/15) found a couple of more needed corrections to the Rule Book, which is now at Version 8.00B.  The changes from 8.00A to 8.00B are very minor, administrative only, and do not affect equipment requirements or competition.

 

Anyone planning to enter the April event should go to the Downloads page right now, get the Tire, Medical, and Emergency forms, and start to work filling them out.  Get the Rule Changes for 2015 and the other updated documents, too.  And if you are a Rookie or know one who wants to compete, be sure to read the new Rookie Requirements List.

 

Entered an event but haven't paid yet? Your spot is not guaranteed!  Read This!

Here's an important point that all entrants need to be aware of.  If you put in your online entry to one of our events, but you decide not to pay at that time, that's fine;  however, until your entry fees are paid in full, your entry is on HOLD, and your spot is NOT guaranteed.  This means that if we get near our entry limit and other, paying entrants want to sign up, you could be bumped out of the event. To avoid this situation, pay your fees as soon as possible!

 

 

 

A WORD TO THE WISE

NOTICE - NEW POLICIES for 2015 - You can no longer "just show up" at the track and sign up to race.  (See Policy Change above.)  All entrants must pre-register online, at least one day prior.  Rookies (those who have never run with us at Mojave before) must pre-register online and pay in full at least the day before they plan to race AND they must show up at the track by 7 AM on their first day of racing, so that they can attend the MANDATORY Rookie Roll Call, Morning Briefing and Track Drive.   Please note that having experience elsewhere no longer exempts you from Rookie status at Mojave.

IF you plan to be a "walk-in" and not sign up until you get to the hotel at Mojave:  We really don't recommend that you wait that long to sign up.  But, if  the event has not sold out in advance, we can most likely accommodate you.  HOWEVER, there are some very important things that you can do before you arrive that will save you a LOT of time (possibly hours) when you get there.

ONE - You need to put your entry into our on-line registration system ahead of time, even if it's just the night before.  Also, it's WAY better for all concerned if you can get to Mojave the day before you intend to race, to check in and go through Tech.  Not arriving until race morning will ALWAYS result in fewer runs for you.  Be aware that under our new policy, we no longer accept new entries at the track on race day; you HAVE to be pre-registered online no later than the day before.

TWO - download, print and fill out the Tire, Medical, and Emergency forms ahead of time.

You're going to have to do these things anyway, and it's a lot easier to do them at home.  If you have to do them at Mojave it may take quite a while; time that could be spent racing instead!

THREE - Properly equip yourself and your vehicle.  Here's a couple of quick tips: You can't show up wearing a t-shirt, shorts, sneakers and a $39 helmet and expect to race.  And you can't show up with ten-year-old bald tires and expect to run, either. Yet, every event, it seems that we encounter that sort of thing.  The most important thing about competing at Mojave isn't going fast, it's going home safe and sound after the event.  That is why we have strict safety rules.  We know, the full Rule Book is a little intimidating, but if you do nothing else, PLEASE read the appropriate Preparation Guide (from our Downloads page) for your type of vehicle and the speed you intend to go. It's only a couple of pages.  Understand what the safety and equipment requirements are for you and your car or bike.  If you arrive at Mojave missing some required items, chances are not very good of you finding any equipment for sale anywhere nearby.  Being well-informed and having the right gear puts you that much ahead of those who just can't be bothered!

A WORD TO THE WISE, if you plan to be a "walk-in" or "late arriver" and register at the event itself.  While we don't recommend that you wait that long, if the event does not sell out in advance, we can most likely accommodate you.  HOWEVER, there are some very important things that you can do before you arrive that will save you a LOT of time (possibly an hour or more) when you get there.

ONE - please, please put your entry into our on-line registration system ahead of time, even if it's just the night before.  You don't have to pay online if you don't want to, but we need that entry information.

TWO - download, print and fill out the Tire, Medical, and Emergency forms.

These are things that you are required to do in order to enter the event, and if you have to do them at Mojave it may take quite a while; time that could be spent racing instead!

THREE - PLEASE read the appropriate Preparation Guide (from our Downloads page) for your type of vehicle and speed class.  Understand what the safety and equipment requirements are for you and your car or bike.  If you arrive at Mojave missing some required items, chances are low of you finding anything for sale anywhere nearby.
