This year has been chock-full of new features and upgrades! Photo uploads, email attachments, and season registration. Custom vehicle fields, email blaster for multiple events, and enhancements to our REST API, just to name a few.

But the next upgrade we're releasing is the big Kahuna! We've been working on this for over a year now. With several months of successful live testing, we are finally ready to announce-

Let us help!

Back in 2013 we added a few new additions to our email lists and posted this opt-in box in a few places in MotorsportReg.

Email_Lists

We're using these lists to directly help our organizers and participants. Over the last year these lists have grown like crazy! And more of our organizers are taking advantage of them and seeing great results.

Last minute track specials- 27,000 subscribers!

This list is specifically for attendees looking for a good deal on track time. It can be used by organizers on our Premium plan offering a last minute discount on open track days or HPDEs. We send it to everyone within 300 miles of the venue and generally reach 3,000 to 4,000 people. Below are some of the actual results after sending out an email blast:

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.

MotorsportReg Updates- June 2015

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.

MotorsportReg Updates- May 2015

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.

How to remove the member # box from your registration form

Date

May 6, 2015 by Jennifer Ghidinelli

If you run events and either don't have members or don't care to collect member numbers, you've probably complained to us how much you hate the member # box at the beginning of your registration form. It looks something like this:

member_app_WH

Now, as the instructions below the box say, your attendee can just leave the box blank and move on to your registration form. But we all know that attendees don't read! So we've given you the option to remove this box from your registration form. Here's what this page looks like if you choose to remove the box:

Driver Assigner Tool - A Breath of Fresh Air for the Time Pressed Organizer

Date

January 14, 2015 by Katie Moosman

Paperwork stress
Before we get started, let me introduce myself. I’m Katie and I’ve been working for MotorsportReg for the past 8 months. Before that, for 6 years I used MSR on a daily basis as an organizer.

Just like many of you - I’ve spent countless hours scrambling before an event assigning my run groups, pairing instructors and gathering paperwork. Anything that could save me precious time before an event was better than gold!
