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, 12,000’ 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!
The April Mojave Mile is in the books!
The 7th Mojave Mile was held on April 12th and 13th, 2014. Once again, we had very good weather and a good racer turnout. And once again we had Big Tailwinds! A new one-mile Mojave Car record was set by the Big Red Camaro, and several new speed-club shirts were earned. Scoring will be posted in a few days.
This is our only event for 2014. We tentatively plan to be back in the spring of 2015 with a Magnum event. Details will be announced when dates are firmed up, probably late this year.
October Magnum event a huge success! New Record set!
We had great weather and a great turnout for the Mojave Magnum on October 12th and 13th, 2013. Mike Garcia set a new Magnum motorcycle record at 247.3 MPH. Many racers earned new 200MPH and 225MPH club shirts.
The results are posted on our results page. The list of speed club members has also been updated.
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!
Speed Limits Raised!
Good news! Effective immediately, we have raised the Auto 1 class maximum speed limit (vehicle tech speed) to 175 MPH (from 170). And, to keep the limits aligned, we also raised the speed limit (driver tech speed) for Class C drivers (and riders) from 170 to 175 MPH.
One other rule change was enacted along with the higher limits. It now takes a 160 MPH run to graduate from a Basic license to a Sportsman license. (This was formerly 153 MPH.) Existing Sportsman license holders who have not yet gone 160 will still get to keep their licenses. (This rule change means that it is no longer possible for no-experience rookies to jump directly to a Sportsman license level using their initial required Rookie run. It will now take at least two runs for them to get that 200mph license.)
A WORD TO THE WISE
IF you plan to be a "walk-in" or "late arriver" and not sign up until you get to Mojave: We really don't recommend that you wait that long to sign up, but hey, we understand. 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 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.
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 just show up wearing a t-shirt, shorts and sneakers and expect to race. And you can't show up with ten-year-old tires and expect to run, either. Yet, every event, it seems that we encounter that sort of thing. People, 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!
