Attendee List Optimized for Mobile
Attendee List Optimized for Mobile
A key roadmap theme for 2021 has been to redesign the main attendee experience for MotorsportReg. Starting with the event calendar, then moving to the registration form in the first quarter, and now an all-new event advertisement.
As referenced in our May blog post, work has been underway to integrate SpeedWaiver into the MotorsportReg check-in experience. We're excited to share a brief video demo of this new capability, which will be launching soon. Please check it out and let us know what you think.
Within the Text and Copy section of your Event Settings, you’ll find a new option to “Enable SpeedWaiver” for your event within the registration flow. By enabling this option, your attendees will automatically be sent the link to your event waiver once they complete their registration, and the waiver will be linked to the attendee’s registration in MSR.
We’ve also added the ability to collect email addresses within the SpeedWaiver flow. This is a great way to add guests or event day walkup attendees to your email lists. Should you want to activate this option to grow your email list, let our team know and we’ll enable it on your account.
In late 2020 we launched a website redesign to better align with modern design and mobile user experience principles. We've received a tremendous amount of helpful feedback from organizers and attendees, which we continue to collect and use to make iterative improvements. Within the website launch announcement, we teased that the updates to the site and calendar were simply the first phase in our plans to upgrade the look, feel, and usability of the MSR platform.
Phase two has been underway for several months and will begin rolling out soon. We have given the attendee registration experience a face lift with one singular objective in mind - making the experience of registering for your events easier and more intuitive for attendees. We've had several organizers beta testing these updates over the last month, and their feedback has been instrumental in the redesign.
More than just refreshing the look and feel, the new experience will reduce the number of steps involved in registration and eliminate barriers that have been common points of confusion or frustration for attendees during the event registration process.
New registration form
The first release in this overhaul is a redesign of the registration form styling with a simplified, more intuitive, and mobile friendly layout. This update will be automatically applied and requires no additional work on your behalf - simply create your registration forms in the Form Builder, and they'll automatically be displayed with the new layout.
This new design is much more mobile friendly. With larger package and touch-anywhere-to-select design, tapping your way through a registration from a smart phone or tablet has never been easier.
Here's a sneak peek of a new form layout:
SpeedWaiver continues to get better and better
We’re starting 2021 off strong with more enhancements to SpeedWaiver. With over 200 organizations using SpeedWaiver to sign more than 90,000 waivers, we've been able to collect a tremendous amount of user ideas and feedback. We have released several new features since we last wrote an update here in November.

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.
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!
