Moto West Grand Prix (MWGP)

If any of you folks are intewrested in doing this let me know, I am headed to Big Willow July 5th for the races, a feew budddies have done it and had a great time!

Below taken from MotoWestgp.com

"Run What Ya Brung

The single most frequently asked question is: What should I do, New Racer’s School or RWYB?

Here are some helpful information to make the decision making easier:

Most riders take their skill to the next level with racing. It’s the ultimate rush being on the grid and proving black on white that you are faster (or slower) than the other guy. With that said, there is a process to go through in order to obtain a race license and compete in those classes. Here are a few options:

If you DO NOT wish to obtain a race license, you can bring your street legal bike to practice and Run What Ya Brung race (RWYB) on any race weekend Saturday. This class is designed for aspiring racers who are not sure if they are ready to commit to racing full time and would like to get a taste of racing without spending the time and money for safety wiring. There is no race license required to compete in this class, and you will be practicing on the track with the NRS students at the same time. You are also welcome to sit through the class with the NRS students which we strongly encourage, however, you will not receive a race license at the end of the course. The fee for RWYB race and practice is $125 (plus $25 mandatory safety advancement fee). You can enter the race in the afternoon after your practice sessions on Saturday. The minimum safety wiring required for this class is:

your kickstand needs to be taken off
your drain plug and your oil filter needs to be safety wired
your lights and reflective parts need to be taped up (track day mode)

To register for RWYB you need to fill out an application at our MWGP Application Page. http://motowestgp.com/register/application/

Once submitted, we will process your application and respond to you with your race profile login information where you can add your bike(s) to your virtual garage and enter races.

As you see, we have covered all the bases for any new or aspiring racer to come out, get a little taste and go racing. Simple and easy.

For some reason, i had imagined Willow Spings to be much farther away from North County Sand Deigo. 180 miles, not too bad. I had never been on a racetrack, i'll consider RWYB for starters, but obtaining a race license would be nice too.

Is this price correct??? "TAGHeur transponders MSRP $350.00"

Are any transponders compatible? Are personal lap-timers allowed? Sometimes lap-timers screw up the transponders if too close and they don't register. What kind of score-keep software is used? Are laps available on Mylaps?

Thanks in advance.

You can rent the transponder for $30 bucks a day... Not sure what software they use for the races...

For trackdays you are usually welcome to put your box by the wall to get your times, some folks get a decent smartphone app. and put their phone under their tail-section. Diablosuperbiker seems good.
