Sunday, May 3rd MX207 Lyman, Maine

After a week off so that riders can go to the New York Supercross the NESC spring series gets back into action in Maine at MX207. Another super popular track on the NESC circuit, MX207, is fun for all riders, has lots of spectating areas where you can see almost all of the track and has plenty of nice flat pit area parking.

If you're not pre-entered fill out your forms on your computer and print them out before you get to the track, that'll save you some time on Sunday morning and will keep the lines moving faster.

All the forms can be found on the forms page.

Speed up those lines, there will be Saturday sign up at MX207

Sign up will be open from 5-7PM on Saturday, gates open at 4PM. Fill out and print your forms at home and bring them filled out, it's easy to do and saves a bunch of time. Use the PDF's on the forms page, fill them out on your computer before you print them. You need a My Laps Flex Transponder to race.
Is your transponder active with a valid subscription?? If it is charged and then displays a fast blinking lights this indicates that the transponder is either not active, or does not have a valid subscription.

You need to connect your transponder's charging cradle to your computer via USB, then download the Flex Manager software to view its status, you will need an internet connection to complete this activation/renewal. - Software can be found here - http://www.mylaps.com/en/software-firmware This software is Windows compatible only.

We have a very small number of transponders available for rental, this requires a CASH $200 refundable deposit and a $10 rental fee. I strongly recommend that you do not rely on the rental option as if they are gone, they are gone. You need to have a transponder to race.

 

Please use your correct NESC number

It really helps if you would please use your assigned NESC number on your bikes and your entry forms. If you need to switch bikes or numbers please let the NESC and track officials know.

 

50's and 65's ARE racing at MX207 on May 3rd

Transponder update

Mylaps has announced a new transponder called X2 MX, direct power and has them available for sale on their site.
These units are permanently mounted to the bike and run off the bikes battery power (MX bikes of course do not typically have batteries) so these units will not work for bikes without batteries. The NESC just talked to Mylaps and they are saying that for our events, we should keep on using and renewing our Flex units.
Riders with the Flex transponders should connect their units through their computers to the Mylaps Flex Manager software to check their expiration date and if expired, renew their subscriptions to them.

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.

 

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.

 

Notes about transponders

All transponders need to be charged before the first race race, 12-16 hours for a full charge.

Riders with Flex transponders (Pay by the year) should make sure their subscriptions are up to date before the first race. 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.

 

Address changed?

If you have changed your address this year, please notify the NESC by email ASAP.
