A quick reminder racers that we upgraded to the new RC4 decoder, you must have a MYLAPS or AMB transponder.

MRT's will NOT work..

I would like to pre register for round 1. I tried registering on nitro series sight but I haven't been approved yet so I can't use the sight.

What user name are you trying to register ? There are so many spam bots these days that I have to manually approve each one and if you are using a very unusual name I sometimes suspect a computer.
Pm me it if you wish
