To our racers and all interested parties:

We have just been informed that, due to ongoing extensive runway and taxiway construction, the Mojave Airport will be unable to grant us a run date in the first half of this year. Regretfully, that means that we must cancel the Mojave Magnum event scheduled for April 20-21, 2013.

The airport management did state that as far as they know right now, there should be no impediment to our planned October 5-6 date. So, barring any surprises, we will open Registration for that event right after the 4th of July weekend. We are also planning to switch that event from a 1-mile format to the 1.5-mile Magnum format, to replace the lost April Magnum event.

We must ask everyone reading this to please NOT contact the Airport to either voice your support for our events, or complain about the lost date. After being briefed on the circumstances, we fully understand and support their need to do what they have done. We still enjoy a great working relationship with Mojave, as evidenced by the fact that they no longer permit any other automotive events at their facility other than ours, and we wish to preserve that relationship. Contacting them with letters and phone calls will NOT help and could hurt. If you wish to comment, please do it to us and not to the airport.

We are sorry if this notice has caused any problems such as lost vacation time, but we have tried to make the loss of the event as painless as possible by delaying Registration until we knew for sure whether we would be allowed to run. We hope to see all of you this fall, and we will still be hard at work in the office if you need to contact us.

Mike have you thought about timing both a mile and mile and a half? They did that at Loring last year. An extra 100bucks to get timed for both.

not complaining to the airport is a good idea.

maybe someday I can make your event.
