Winchester Speedpark Sunday, May 4
The Spring series takes a couple weeks off for Easter and the New Jersey supecross and then returns to beautiful Winchester Speedpark on Sunday May 4th.
The NESC offers classes for all riders from novices to pros, if you've only practiced at Crow Hill this would be a great day to try racing with other beginners.
100% plus payback ten spots in the 250 & 450 expert/pro motos
Not 3, not 5, but all the way back to tenth place*! No New England series pays out what the NESC races pay out. *Riders must place in the top ten of a moto (combined expert and pro to win cash). Expert class riders are also eligible for trophies in their class.
Huge points fund for the Pro/Expert classes
Last year $25,000.00 was paid out at the Awards banquet to the Expert and Pro riders in the top 15 and this year with bigger turn outs it could be even more.
Transponders Transponder Transponders
Please make sure yours is charged and if it's a subscription version that it's renewed. You can renew them here.
Notes from the NESC office:
Make sure you move your transponder from bike to bike if you race two.
If your transponder is flashing a red light after charging it is probably out of time and more must be purchased through the MYlaps Website.
NESC does not SELL transponders or chargers nor do we activate the Flex units at the tracks.
If you have lost your charger, you must purchase one on line from Mylaps we cannot charge them for you on race day.
Members must own a transponder before they are issued a card, you have 3 weeks to purchase a transponder after joining We do not rent
transponders to members.
A few other reminders:
You must ride with your assigned NESC number, with "Y's" and "V's" and with the correct plate color. The NESC referee made note of more than a dozen violations where he reminded riders.
250 four strokes are NOT ALLOWED in our 450 MX classes, unless you bring written proof that they have been modified, and either show it at sign-up or
to the NESC referee; that said then they cannot enter the regular 250 Lites classes with the same bike.
The NESC will have cards at Crow Hill for members who joined at Central or through the mail this week. New members will not be issued cards until they provide NESC with their correct transponder number
If you're planning on racing this Sunday here are a few tips on how you can make the day go smoother for you and for everyone else.
First if you haven't joined the NESC yet do that today, fill out this form and mail it in. That'll keep you out of one line.
Next pre-enter for the race, not only does it save you ten bucks but you'll be able to just check in at signup and then grab some breakfast.
If you're not going to pre-enter fill out the entry form at home on your computer and print it out. A nice clean print will be much easier for the signup people to read.
Make sure your transponder is charged and if you have a subscription model make sure it's renewed.

They should connect then to the Mylaps Flex Manager Program to verify the expiration date. We cannot activate them at NESC events because we have no internet connections. We cannot score riders without charged transponders.
