Feature Updates (and t-shirts!) - June 2016

Date

June 22, 2016 by Brian Ghidinelli

It's feature update time! We have a big batch of bug fixes and enhancements to tell you about. Before we get down to business, let us share one fun thing: the first-ever Official Team MSR t-shirt and hoodie!

Super soft premium tees from BELLA+CANVAS and hoodies from Tri-Mountain that you won't want to take off

We designed ourselves t-shirts and hoodies inspired by F1 team jackets and when our friends saw the mockup, they wanted one too! So, we’re letting everyone be part of Team MSR and grab a super-soft sweatshirt or t-shirt. But there’s only one printing so get your pre-order in today: http://msreg.com/msrshirt

Now, on to how we're making your events better!

The Cost of Renting Race Tracks Around the World

Date

April 28, 2017 by Brian Ghidinelli

What goes into the cost of organizing an HPDE, track day or race event on a road course? Many things, of course, but the largest fee is the track surface itself. It requires many experts to prepare, lay and maintain the specially formulated asphalt that resists high lateral G forces and somebody has to pay for it. That person is the event organizer, and by proxy, their participants. Today we're going to peek behind the curtain at the cost of road course rentals around the world.

While we focus on the frequently requested and bigger changes, there are a slew of updates in the Quick Hits section. Make sure to skim for gold nuggets!

Offering a Text/Phone Hotline on Your Terms

Date

February 18, 2016 by Brian Ghidinelli

Remember when clubs used to publicize telephone hotlines as a way of keeping members informed? Dial it up and get a voice recording of the latest news. Wondering if that event was still on due to weather? Call up the hotline and hear a short recording left by the event registrar before heading out. Web and email all but replaced hotlines, but let's not throw away the phone just yet. There's a way you can have your hotline without giving up your privacy or sanity.

Feature Updates - August 2015

Date

August 26, 2015 by Brian Ghidinelli

This week I'm near Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin - not to attend an event at Road America (drats!) - but rather for our annual team meetup in Lake Geneva. As a fully remote team we find a late summer week to bring the team together, review our progress and refine our plan for the future. It's a chance to replace phone calls and emoji with face-to-face conversations and meals that leaves us energized to keep pushing forward.

Date

August 10, 2015 by Brian Ghidinelli

Flexibility is what MotorsportReg is all about. You build your tribe with a particular experience that is everything from where you promote your events to how you greet people at the event to how you treat folks who run afoul of your rules. You can customize large parts of the data you gather with MotorsportReg including the person and attendee profiles using our custom question functionality but one category has remained static: vehicles.

Date

August 10, 2015 by Brian Ghidinelli

A personal goal this year is to improve my communication with what's changed in MotorsportReg. As you may have seen on the blog and on the site, we've added a couple of people to our team which means things will begin changing at a faster (and better) rate. That means I need to tell you more frequently about the changes both obvious and not-so-obvious. Let's catch up with a series of blog posts starting today.
