Mojave Mile

Mojave Mile 2012

The Mojave Mile

Standing Mile racing is now the hottest form of racing on the West coast!

That’s right – standing-start, flat out speed, as fast as you can go in ONE MILE!

In conjunction with the Mojave Air and Space Port in Mojave, CA, the Mojave Mile is the latest, fastest, and best venue for Standing Mile racing. Mojave features a smooth, 12,000’ runway, with up to a mile of shutdown distance, the latest in accurate laser timing equipment, a top-notch staff of experienced professionals and safety response teams, and a huge overnight-secured Paddock area with P.A. system and catered food.

The Mojave Mile is open to both cars and motorcycles, and is held multiple times per year. Mark your calendar NOW to attend one of the most exciting new racing venues in the country!

Sign up NOW for our final 2012 event! We are currently taking entries for the September Mojave Mile!

Entries have started rolling in, and remember, there is a limit of 150 entrants! If you want to enter the event, click here to go to our on-line registration system. Also be sure to read "A Word To The Wise", below.

* * JUST ANNOUNCED * * - 2-day standard entry packages now include one FREE event T-shirt!

1st Mojave Magnum very successful, new records set

The Inaugural Mojave Magnum, on June 2-3, 2012, is in the books! We had warm and sometimes windy weather, but they were mostly tailwinds, which along with the 1.5 mile length, resulted in some very impressive runs. Many people set their personal best speeds ever!

Since the records and speed clubs for the Magnum are separate from the Mile events, there were a lot of new speed club memberships awarded, and records set.

Results are available here. The new speed club list is on our Speed Club page here. (both revised 6/12/12)

We plan to run more 1.5 mile events in 2013. Dates will be announced here as soon as we have them firmed up.

A WORD TO THE WISE

IF you plan to be a "walk-in" or "late arriver" and not sign up until you get to Mojave: We really don't recommend that you do that, but hey, we understand. If the event has not sold out in advance, we can most likely accommodate you. HOWEVER, there are some very important things that you can do before you arrive that will save you a LOT of time (possibly an hour or more) when you get there.

ONE - please, please put your entry into our on-line registration system ahead of time, even if it's just the night before. You don't have to pay online if you don't want to, but we need that entry information.

TWO - download, print and fill out the Tire, Medical, and Emergency forms.

You're going to have to do these things anyway, and it's a lot easier to do them at home. If you have to do them at Mojave it may take quite a while; time that could be spent racing instead!

THREE - Properly equip yourself and your vehicle. Here's a couple of quick tips: You can't just show up wearing a t-shirt, shorts and sneakers and expect to race. And you can't show up with ten-year-old tires and expect to run, either. Yet, every event, it seems that we encounter this sort of thing. People, the most important thing about competing at Mojave isn't going fast, it's going home safe and sound after the event. That is why we have strict safety rules. We know, the full Rule Book is a little intimidating, but if you do nothing else, PLEASE read the appropriate Preparation Guide (from our Downloads page) for your type of vehicle and the speed you intend to go. It's only a couple of pages. Understand what the safety and equipment requirements are for you and your car or bike. If you arrive at Mojave missing some required items, chances are not good of you finding any equipment for sale anywhere nearby. Being well-informed and having the right gear puts you that much ahead of those who just can't be bothered!

Our Message Board is open!

Looks like fun. I couldn't help but notice on the 1.5 mile Mojave Magnum that a 65 Shelby Cobra went 195.8 mph. That's darn close to Dick Smith territory. I would love to do that event. I posted a question about it on the Club Cobra forum hoping that someone might know the guy (Virgil Benton from La Jolla). Cheers.
