Wow! Cant believe our first event of the season is only a few days away.
Here are some tips that might serve you well this weekend...

***Must have drivers license at registration***
***Putnam Park does not allow Friday set up for anyone (including MCRA).***

Friday from 5pm-8pm (Eastern time!) Beth will be open for early registration at the Super 8 in Cloverdale. Registering Friday evening will set the tone for the rest of your weekend. if you've gotten that out of the way then, all you have to do the next morning is get your bike through tech and be ready for riders meeting. At this time, we are almost completely sold out witch means the morning will be hectic. Spare yourself the pain of standing in line and rushing around trying to get ready.

Saturday gates open at 6:30am. When you pull into Putnam Park, only use the right lane to cue up for your signature and anrmband at the gate. You may notice a few people drive up the left lane but only track officials and MCRA officials can use the left lane. All participants including MCRA coaches and vendors need to stay in the right lane so we may hurry to set up for you. Registration in main tower opens at 7:15am. Tech in garage #1 opens at 7:15am (coaches in garage 2 and 3).

Riders meeting at 8:15ish is a mandatory function with us, no matter your experience. It takes priority over you being ready to ride in your first session. Registration and Tech close during riders meeting.

Please keep your pit set up to a minimum. Paddock area at Putnam can be tight with a full house so please be kind and make space for everyone.

We will have tire reps, suspension reps, parts and accessories reps and an official photographer taking free pictures for you.

Racers have to be signed up for all races by 11am!
Racer Meeting will be held during lunch break.
Please read rulebook updates for 2016. Lots of changes this season! http://midwestcaferacing.com/wp-content ... e-Book.pdf

Race Clinic...you must attend the 8:15 riders meeting and your class room begins immediately following riders meeting on the second floor of the tower.

What am I missing?

We are really looking forward to finally having a nice MCRA opener at Putnam and we look forward to seeing everyone!

I believe the gates are closed at 6pm, daily. Dont worry, the Putnam staff will let you know if you're even close to being there within like 15 minutes of the gates closing. They want you OUT!! :-)
