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 laser 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 catered food.
The Mojave Mile is open to both cars and motorcycles. Mark your calendar NOW to attend one of the most exciting racing venues in the country!
April 2013 Mojave Magnum event canceled due to airport construction
Regretfully, due to airport runway construction, we had to cancel the Mojave Magnum event that was set for April 20-21, 2013. It has been moved to later in the year; see the next item.
Mojave Magnum now scheduled for October 2013
We now plan to run our Mojave Magnum event on October 12th and 13th, 2013. Pricing will be basically be the same as the 2012 Magnum. The entry limit has been raised to 120 drivers each day.
Entries for this event will open July 8, 2013, barring any more unforeseen complications.
Great News! The October Mojave Magnum will offer dual distance runs after all!
Previously we had announced that it wasn't going to be possible to have both 1-mile and 1.5-mile timing at our Magnum events due to technical issues. While we still won't be able to offer multiple timing traps with "split times", we have decided to go ahead with a scheme to allow racers to choose which of the two lengths they wish to run, on a run-by-run basis. The way this will work is by using two different starting lines, with the same finish line. The racer will indicate his or her chosen distance by lining up in the appropriate grid line. Speeds recorded on 1-mile runs will be eligible for Mojave Mile speed clubs and records.
2013 Rule Changes
There are very few vehicle equipment rule changes for 2013, and there are no changes to the required personal safety gear. Updated Rule Books and other documents will be posted soon.
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!
