"Is this new?  El Mirage only?"

No.

I understand that the book hasn't been printed yet, let alone distributed.  It will be available pre-registration at El Mirage.  I understand it contains sections for both Bonneville and El Mirage.  Part of its purpose is to document a driver's experience at the two venues.

Guests are limited to the number of events they may drive at, not the number of runs they can make during any one event.  A BNI membership has no standing whatsoever at El Mirage.  Also, med forms are no longer required monthly.  Believe they keep them filed annually now.

If it's just about seat time, I recommend visiting El Mirage during the week. If you arrive at dawn, you'll have the whole place to yourself.
Plus, no tech inspection, no arm restraint discussion, no fees, (except to the BLM), no rookie orientation, no driver's meeting, no endless wait in pre-stage with your very high line-up number.

And no safety support crew.  Back when we were still having handling problems with the roadster we went out to do some testing early on an off weekend.  The handling problem appeared to be gone at lower speed so I upped the speed and wound up spinning at about 175 mph.  Went back and checked the tire tracks and I literally slid around a 3 foot long, 2 foot wide, 1 foot deep sink hole in the lakebed.  :-o We had walked our test course and never even came across this sink hole because it was way off in the distance.  Needless to say, had I hit that sink hole, very bad things would have happened.  That was the last time we went testing on an off weekend at El Mirage.  YRMV.

Great idea but I would prefer a safety crew in attendance.
