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!
Mojave Magnum returns for 2015
MKM is pleased to announce the return 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 cautiously hopeful that we will have an intermediate speed trap at the 1-mile mark on the course. If that happens, those 1-mile trap speeds will be eligible for our Mile records.
Entry is limited to 110 persons on each day. Online entries will be taken starting February 9, 2015.
Hope to see you there!
We may also stage a Mojave event in the Fall of 2015 but that is not a sure thing, just yet. When we know, you'll know.
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
IF you plan to be a "walk-in" 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 - NEW POLICY for 2015 - Rookies can no longer just walk in "cold" and sign up at the track for that day's racing. Rookies must sign up online at least the day before they plan to race and they MUST show up by 7 AM on their first day of racing, so that they can attend the MANDATORY Morning Briefing and Track Drive. A Rookie is defined as anyone who has not run at a Mojave Mile or Magnum before. Other experience no longer counts.
TWO - Even if you are not a rookie, 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.
THREE - 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!
FOUR - 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 Walmart helmet 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. 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!
