    THERE HAVE BEEN MANY CHANGES! PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TO BE FULLY PREPARED AND UP TO DATE!

    AIR FENCE SET UP:
    Air fence set up will take place at Castrol Thursday July 5th at 6pm. Please check the air fence volunteer sign up program on the EMRA website forums, or contact Eric Russnak for more info.

    TECH AND REGISTRATION:

    The EMRA has MotorsportReg for registration, and MyLaps for timing and gridding.
    • Registration and Tech will be open all day Friday until 8pm.
    • Saturday and Sunday morning until 8am.
    • Registration, Medical Data Carriers, Transponder Rentals and Access Passes will be available at Brian Lam's Pit at the registration table.
    • Waivers will be available at registration and Neil Carlson's/Freight Train Racing Pit Area.
    Please also take note of a change in the registration policy. ONLINE Registration will only be open until Wednesday July 4th 10:00pm - no exceptions, and in person at the track Friday July 6th for any late registrations and check in. There will be registration on Saturday morning until the riders meeting, if you are planning to only race Saturday and/or Sunday and will not be attending Friday, email registration@emra.ca to let us know so we can get you checked in in advance. Any late registration will be processed when volunteer time allows. Be prepared to WAIT and be gridded at the back of your races. Grids will be posted on Friday after registration closes (qualifying grids at the end of the day) you must let us know by the end of Friday practice day if you see any problems that need to be corrected.

    There will be NO debit card payment at the track. If you did not pay online please bring cash, cheque or credit card to the track for payment. The late fee for registration is still $50.

    We are doing everything we can to make registration and gridding as smooth as possible, and to make the registration process easy to follow, but please make sure to read through registration instructions FIRST, and email us with any issues (registration@emra.ca) SECOND.

    Both registration and tech are being opened as soon as possible Friday morning to reduce lineups and save time. If you want to register and get your bike teched, it is in your best interest to show up early. We are volunteering our time to get a head start on the weekend, so this is done on a best effort basis, if it passes the cut off time you will need to wait until time allows volunteers to register and tech your bike.

    SCHEDULE:
    Saturday and Sunday Riders meeting will be held the usual time of 8am. DO NOT MISS RIDERS MEETING! ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY.

    PARKING:
    EARLY PARKING THURSDAY EVENING. It will be possible to park trailers at the track Thursday evening in preparation for the race weekend. This will take place after drift practice taking place before, approx. 10pm.

    Please enter the facility through the EMRA gates and pay entrance fees at the EMRA gate.

    For pit set up please see the parking map below. If for whatever reason a vehicle of yours needs to be moved you will be asked politely one time to move it. After that it will be towed.

    TRANSPONDERS:
    Please make sure you bring your AMB transponders to the track registered, fully charged and ready to go. The EMRA will have a limited number of transponders available for rent at a cost of $50/weekend. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR TRANSPONDER HAS THE LATEST FIRMWARE INSTALLED! Transponders are now mandatory! More info about transponder and setting them up here: http://www.emra.ca/forums/index.php?threads/transponder-quick-start-guide.4326/

    PRACTICE GROUPS:
    The groups and times will remain the same as round 1, please practice in the CORRECT group. Race control will make changes to the practice groups as they see fit. The times are as follows for Saturday and Sunday:

    Riders who's fastest lap times in a race from last round qualify for:
    Group 4: 1:24.5 and faster.
    Group 3: 1:24.5 -1:27.0
    Group 2: 1:27 -up
    Group 1: all novice riders

    TRACK SIDE VENDORS
    Please check out our track side vendors, Vicous Cycle, Freight Train Racing and ZBM Racing will be track side with tires, supplies and services ready to help you get out on the track and go faster.

    ROUND 2 and 3 SUPPORTING EVENTS
    July 7th 4pm the EMRA is hosting a free BBQ and free paced laps on track shortly after the final races. We will be hosting the Girls N Gears riding club this round. This group is for Edmonton and surrounding area lady riders. It will be a great opportunity to expose a large amount of riders who may not otherwise visit the track to our incredible racing and friendly track atmosphere. Donation to the air fence fund is appreciated.

    ROUND 2 and 3 SPONSOR!
    Last but not least, BIG thanks you to Riverside Honda and Ski-Doo and Riverside Motosports for being the title sponsors for Round 2 and 3! The local dealerships are a huge part of what keeps our club alive. Please stop into our sponsoring dealerships and tell them you appreciate the support they give to local racing!

    IMPORTANT:
    There has been a firmware release for the transponders and race keys some time between now and the test and tune.
