Next Event - Spring 2018, date TBA
The Mojave Magnum
Standing Start Speed Trial racing is one of the hottest forms of racing in the country!
That’s what we offer at Mojave – standing-start, flat out speed, as fast as you can go in a MILE and a HALF!
Held in conjunction with the Mojave Air and Space Port in Mojave, CA, the Mojave Magnum is the fastest and best venue for Standing Start Speed Trial racing. Mojave features a smooth, 12,500’ runway, with 8/10 of a mile of shutdown distance, the latest in accurate electronic timing equipment, a top-notch staff of experienced professionals and safety response teams, and a huge overnight-secured Paddock area with P.A. system and food.
The Mojave Magnum is open to both cars and motorcycles. Mark your calendar to attend one of the most exciting racing venues in the country!
Special Announcement: MKM announces Mojave hiatus for 2017
MKM Racing Promotions LLC, promoters of the Mojave Magnum speed trials, regretfully announces that we will not be presenting any racing events in 2017.
There is no one specific reason for this; rather, a combination of circumstances, both personal and professional, has prompted us to take this course of action. There are only so many hours in the day, or week, or year, and we require time to resolve these issues that cannot be done with the added burden of our two Mojave events. So, after much internal discussion, we finally had to conclude that we will not be able to run any events in 2017.
At this time, our plans are to return in spring 2018 with the Mojave Magnum, but with revamped rules, fees, procedures, and class structure. More details will be made available in 4Q 2017. Please note that one of the rule changes will be the elimination of the SSE class.
To our racers, we ask for your understanding and support, as we consider all of you as “family” in the racing world. To our untiring, incredible volunteer staff, who have stood by us for eight years (and some for much longer!), we owe a debt of gratitude and thanks for making the Mojave events the success they are today.
We hope to see all of you again in April 2018.
What about the Mojave Mile?
It's unlikely that we will be running any more Mojave Mile events. All future events will be in the Magnum 1.5 mile format. We will still have 1-mile speed clubs/shirts and 1-mile speeds will still be measured at all events.
Major policy change
We regret to announce that our Mojave events are now PRIVATE, MEMBERS ONLY and CLOSED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. The airport has dictated that we admit no public spectators, and that we keep the number of people inside the gate to a minimum. You will have to be a member in good standing of MKM Racing, an MKM staff member, MKM special guest, official/safety person, or preapproved media or vendor to get in. Annual memberships will be available only to racers, their families, crew, and a very limited number of guests. Memberships will not be sold to the general public.
American Express no longer accepted
Effective immediately, we will no longer be accepting American Express cards for payment. We still accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover.
Entered an event but haven't paid yet? Your spot is not guaranteed! Read This!
Here's an important point that all entrants need to be aware of. If you put in your online entry to one of our events, but you decide not to pay at that time, that's fine; however, until your entry fees are paid in full, your entry is shunted off to the Waiting List, and your spot is NOT guaranteed. This means that if we get near our entry limit and other, paying entrants want to sign up, you could be bumped out of the event. To avoid this situation, pay your fees as soon as possible!
WORDS TO THE WISE
NOTICE - You cannot "just show up" at the track and sign up to race. All entrants must register online, at least one day prior. The ONLY WAY to enter our events is online, in advance - you can't send in paper forms, you can't do it on the phone, you can't do it in person. This means we no longer accept "walk-in" entries. The ONLY WAY to enter is to do so online before 8 PM the night before you race.
Rookies (those who have never run with us at Mojave before) must be registered online and paid in full no later than 8 PM the Friday before they plan to race AND they must show up at the track by 7 AM on their first day of racing, so that they can attend the MANDATORY Rookie Roll Call, Morning Briefing and Track Drive. Please note that having experience elsewhere does not exempt you from Rookie status at Mojave.
It is much better for all concerned if you can get to Mojave the day before you intend to race, to check in and go through Tech. Not arriving until race morning will ALWAYS result in fewer runs for you. Remember, you MUST be registered online no later than 8 PM the night before.
Properly equip yourself and your vehicle. Here's a couple of quick tips: You can't show up wearing a t-shirt, shorts, sneakers and a $39 helmet and expect to race. And you can't show up with ten-year-old dry-rotted tires and expect to run, either. Yet, every event, it seems that we encounter that sort of thing. The most important thing about competing at Mojave isn't going fast, it's going home safe and sound after the event. That is why we have strict safety rules. We know, the full Rule Book is a little intimidating, but if you do nothing else, PLEASE read the appropriate Preparation Guide (from our Downloads page) for your type of vehicle and the speed you intend to go. It's only a couple of pages. Understand what the safety and equipment requirements are for you and your car or bike. If you arrive at Mojave missing some required items, chances are not very good of you finding any equipment for sale anywhere nearby. Being well-informed and having the right gear puts you that much ahead of those who just can't be bothered!
