MX207 Lyman, Maine April 30th

43 entries, 46 entries how many this week? Everyone's talking about the NESC 450A class these days and with good reason, riders like Jason Brooks, Austin Phellps, Chopper Borrello, Ryan Dowd, Robby Marshall, Billy Ainsworth, Josh Prior, Walter White and Shane Kelleher put on an amazing show in the two 20 minute motos. Make plans to head on over to MX207 this Sunday for round three of the spring series. MX207 has lots of high speed sections, big jumps and even some big, sandy bowl turns.
There's plenty of nice flat, level camping spots and lots of them are right along the track fence so you can watch the action right from your rig.

MX207 will run an open practice on Saturday, checkout MX 207 for all the details.

There will be classes for all abilities and all bike sizes 50's, 65's, 85cc's and up (the 50cc and 65cc classes will be running at all MX207 NESC races) one day racers are always welcome but only NESC members earn championship points and only NESC members are eligible for end of the year awards, scholarships and benefits from the Tom Timonen fund.

Notes from the office
We will be following the rulebook under NP-1 following the 4/30/17 race at MX-207. 1st offense, verbal warning, second offense rider will not be allowed to start their moto. If you have a number on your back, it should match your assigned bike number. Paul Robbins (NESC ref) has already been keeping a list and warning riders.

We also have several riders who continue to cause problems every week because they “forget” to transfer their transponders to both bikes that they are riding. The rule is no transponder, no score we need to crack down especially when it’s the same riders every week. It's understandable that someone might forget once, but some continue to do this every week, then run down to say they forgot to put it on the other bike.

Another thing to remember is that the rulebook says you have 30 minutes to protest a score after it is posted. Waiting until the end of the day to come to tell us there was an error in moto 1 causes us to delay shutting down the system to make the changes, in many instances trophies have already been given out, and worst case money classes have already been paid.

No more pre-entry at the NESC races

NESC members are now able to enter on race day using the kiosks at sign up, the first two classes are 35. each and the third is 15.. One day riders must still sign up with the NESC at the track and then enter their classes by signing up with that track.

Mylaps transponder update

Mylaps has finally given riders some updates and now they have a “fix” for the older version X2’s that would not connect/charge. The NESC has a few of these “fix” packs available at sign-up. Newer versions will not have the issue. Also there are instructions on how to tell if the X2’s are activated and how much time they have left.
You can read more here

Notes from the office

Forms must be completely filled out, all information must be on the forms before they can be processed, especially transponder numbers and notary stamps.

Incomplete forms must be returned, unprocessed.

Transponders

Remind everyone to charge their Flex and Classic transponders for at least 12 hours before race day. Newer X2’s require only 4 hours to charge.

If they are blinking fast red then they need to buy more time directly from Mylaps; their subscriptions are expired or for the new X2 units, they need to be activated before use.

Expired Flex units: You must purchase more time on Mylaps.com and then connect the transponder through your computer to the Flex Manager program on the Mylaps website and activate them.

For fast blinking X2 units they must be activated directly from the Mylaps website, by logging on to the rider’s Mylaps account.

NESC has no Internet connection available on its computers at Southwick or Central Village. We cannot activate your transponders.

 

Now there's a 10 race minimum required to be eligible for year end awards. Some tracks feel that we have low turnouts at some events because riders have no commitment to the series, they race only half of the events. They can skip all the Maine races and still get 7 per half by going only to MA and CT to ride.

Also it is very important to understand that the parental consent form listed is for parents that are sending their minors to race events where they will not be present. They must name the person acting as guardian for the day, it must be notarized and we need a new form for every event. We have no blanket minor releases at NESC.

 

Did you know...

Did you know that the NESC is a non-profit corporation? The NESC runs off only the funds collected from membership fees (either full year or one day) and the transponder rental fees. The NESC does not make money from the race entries and gate fees at the races.
Did you know that one dollar from every entry goes into the Tom Timonen Fund that is in place to help riders injured in NESC races?

 

Trackside X2 Transponders

The new transponder model from Trackside, the X2 will be compatible with the NESC scoring system. These will have to be activated by the rider before they get to the track.
