TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH (March 17, 2009) — As is fitting for a state-of-the-art motorsports facility, Miller Motorsports Park is now offering a state-of-the-art online registration process for participants in its local racing series and the Miller Performance Training Center.

Miller Motorsports Park has teamed up with MotorsportReg.com to offer our racers and students a simple, secure and stress-free means of registering for races and schools. Registrants can pay online via credit card and will still need to check in at the Box Office upon arrival at the track, but the wait will be much less and the entire process will be much more efficient. In addition, when a registrant registers for any subsequent event, their data will already exist in the system and the process will be streamlined even further.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer online registration to our racers and students,” said Ty Pursley, MMP Box Office and Group Sales Manager. “This is something we have wanted to do since the track opened in 2006, and in MotorsportReg.com we now have a partner who can help us make this a seamless experience for our customers.”

“MotorsportReg.com is proud to be the registration solution for Miller Motorsports Park,” said Brian Ghidinelli, company founder. “We are excited to partner with this world-class facility and look forward to streamlining the registration experience for Miller customers.”

Go to the following links and create a user profile to get registered for available upcoming events. To register for a driving school with the Miller Performance Training Center, please visit www.MillerPerformanceTrainingCenter.MotorsportReg.com. To register for Open Track Days or to enter races in the Miller Park Racing Association, Masters of the Mountains Series, Utah Supermoto Championship, Icebreaker Kart Championship presented by HeritageWest Credit Union or Utah Kart Championship Series, please visit www.MMP.MotorsportReg.com. Registrants can still refer to www.MillerMotorsportsPark.comm for event details and be directed to the appropriate link for online registration.

Thanks MiDiv!

Date

June 11, 2013 by Brian Ghidinelli

SCCA MiDiv Convention 2009MotorsportReg.com sponsored the 2009 SCCA MiDiv Convention in Kansas City, MO this past weekend. I had the opportunity to schmooze with some of our existing customers and meet new people from the 14 regions of MiDiv. We handled online registration for the event and I gave two presentations titled "Online Registration 2.0", our take on the emerging opportunities and responsibilities around online registration. Both were well attended and I received great questions from Club Racing, PDX, Rally and Solo chairs.

Thanks to Donna Hill, the event chairperson, for her hospitality and help in getting us involved in the event. It was our third SCCA event of 2009 and every bit as great as the previous two. She doubled as an excellent emcee for the awards banquet on Saturday night!

Time Trial Vehicle Classification Registration

Triangle Z Club Time Trial Vehicle Profile EventGet a load of this one: Stacy King from Triangle Z Club and Asphalt Ventures put together a beginning-of-year vehicle profile questionnaire for his Time Trial program. He can export all this data from his event into a spreadsheet and then perform whatever calculations are necessary to properly class the cars. This is a great example of someone taking our tools and doing awesome things with them that we never imagined.

Capable tech support is top desired attribute

Date

June 11, 2013 by Brian Ghidinelli

InformationWeek.com chart showing top requested qualities in technology vendorsI found this article at InformationWeek.com interesting:

The #1 desired quality of a "most-trusted technology vendor" is capable tech support


There is a neat sidebar describing how winemaker Gallo evaluates vendors. They use a 12-point review process; half of which rates the company and half the product or service. The innovative part is where they also ask the vendor to rate themselves on the same criteria and then look for wide variances in the scores to identify perception gaps for closer analysis. Check it out for yourself.

Requiring payment reduces cancellations

Date

June 11, 2013 by Brian Ghidinelli

StatisticsA quick update from our secret number-crunching laboratory:


Events that don't require payment at time of registration have 50% more cancellations than those that do.


Yikes - cancellations are the bane of every registrar and club! Often they come at the last minute. And if you're left without any financial collateral, you could be the one holding the bag. With skin in the game, attendees who register and pay for events are much more likely to fulfill their obligations.

With our new deferred payment processing feature, there's no reason not to collect payment details at time of registration. The card won't be charged until you, as the organizer, say the registration is final and should be fulfilled. That can be immediately after you preview the order or much later like after the event takes place (SCCA regions take note how this jives with your "don't turn a wheel..." policy).

Getting around Websense and other web filters

Date

June 11, 2013 by Brian Ghidinelli

Occasionally we hear from a customer whose members are having a hard time reaching MotorsportReg.com due to corporate web filters. Often the culprit is Websense which blocks things based on categories.

In the past year, we've been listed as Information Technology, Blog, Games, Automotive and who knows what else. We don't really fit well into any of those categories since we're by and large a transactional site much like Ticketmaster.com.

The good news is there is a way to get around this and it's dead simple: SSL. If you access the secure version of our website at https://www.MotorsportReg.com/. Just include the S in the address like httpS:// and you'll fly right by the filter! Game on...

Follow us on Twitter

Date

twitterDon't know what Twitter is? Your kids probably do. It's basically text messaging for the web. Or blogging in 140-character increments. Why do you care? Because in the event that MotorsportReg.com is unavailable, it's the way that you'll be able to stay in the know.

We believe in Reliability, with a capital R. That means that we worry about service outages before they happen. If we were to experience downtime on MotorsportReg.com that prevented the site from responding, you should still be able to come here, to pukkasoft.com, and see what's going on. But let's pretend that it's not just MotorsportReg.com that's down, but California finally broke off and floated away into the Pacific and the extension cords weren't long enough. Then what?

The answer is our Twitter feed. Since Twitter is an altogether separate service run by separate people on separate servers in separate networks (one in California and one in Virginia), the odds of us both being down at the same time is highly unlikely. Like asteroid-crashing-into-the-Earth unlikely.

We're also posting our upcoming outage notifications to Twitter. When we release new versions of MotorsportReg.com with enhancements, we typically take about 2-3 minutes to clear caches and reload the application. We already post these notifications to the site itself but if you're "following" us on Twitter, you'll receive 15-30 minutes advance warning before it happens. This will be especially handy for event organizers who frequently access the site.

We never promise to be perfect but we do promise to work as hard as we can to be reasonably close and always honest. This third backup mechanism is one more way of being as transparent as possible.
