1)  If you are racing in an earlier race than your own for a practice lap you will no longer be in Class 1800.  Class 1800 is a true sportsman class and we want to give them the opportunity to win the race.  A pre-run class is now Class 4700, no trophy’s will be given in this class.  YOU MUST use a different transponder than the one you use for your main race, you cannot use the same transponder, it will mess up the scoring program.  The scoring program will score you for the Class 4700 race and add that to your main race, it doesn’t work, so you must use (2) different transponders.  20 starting points total, both days.

Maps and GPS Files – Garmin, Lowrance and Participants

Minor Form – anyone racing 17 years or younger must fill out this Minor Form.  This is a new Minor form and yes you need a separate minor form notarized for each race, bring this form with you to registration.  We suggest making 5-6 copies and have it notarized all at once, this will save you 5-6 trips to a notary, but again, we need one form per event.
