    Miata Reunion is a ‘national’ event that has been held on the west coast over the years.  This year, it was scheduled to be at Road Atlanta on Halloween weekend…but we all know what this year has been like…so it was a nice surprise to see this little announcement in my email the other day bringing this weekend of fun to New Jersey Motorsports Park

    Thanks Joe for posting this here.  I look forward to seeing some of the NMC friends lots of Miata cars!

    Last year’s Miata Reunion was canceled.  That was too bad, Atlanta Motor Raceway has much better facilities for everyone.

    Regardless, it should fun weekend.  Just to add, there is a long thread talks about this in the Miata dot net forum.

    Someone posted this in regards to some safety.  Helmet rules for those planning on hot lapping etc.

    Please don’t kill the messenger.

    [QUOTE=Merlin;10120025]The SCCA just posted this notice about the latest NJ helmet rules for motorsports. Important news for anyone planning to do any lapping at NJMP during the Miata Reunion.

    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT, NJ HELMET, AT 2021 EVENTS
    This note contains important information for events requiring helmets in New Jersey during the 2021 season, as dictated by the New Jersey State Police.

    The New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety governs motorsport events in the state through its Chapter 62 Motor Vehicle Racetrack Regulations. These supersede, by law, requirements specified in our SCCA General Competition Rules.

    Found the following message in my email this afternoon

     

    We hope this finds all of you safe and healthy.

    This virus has undoubtedly changed many peoples’ lives over this past year, and our event is no exception.  Plans for any gathering that take everyone’s health and safety into account were put on hold, especially activities that focus heavily on community and social interaction, such as the Miata Reunion.

    With recent positive developments, we’re pleased to say we are still planning on holding the Miata Reunion at New Jersey Motorsports Park on Saturday and Sunday, October 23rd and 24th, with event check-in and the ‘Moss BBQ and Car Show’ on Friday, October 22nd.

    With everyone working together, we hope once again to celebrate our favorite little car over a fun-filled weekend.

    For planning purposes, Event Registration will open at 9am Pacific time on Saturday, June 5th.

    The Car Show and various driving activities will all still happen as planned. However, while we’re cautiously optimistic that the Saturday Party will happen, we won’t make the final decision about this until closer to the date.

    Our goal is to have the website with all details fully completed by April 5th.

    Please be patient as we still need to confirm many details with suppliers who have also been hit hard by this pandemic.

    We’ll follow up with an announcement as soon as the website is complete, and look forward to seeing all of you in October.

    Here is the latest info from the Miata Reunion folks

     

    Registration opens in just a couple of weeks – have you booked your hotel room yet?
    If not, please visit the Plan Your Trip section at https://miatareunion.com/plan-your-trip/ for links to our event hotels with group discounts.

    GENERAL ADMISSION & MOSS MIATA CRUISE:

    On-line registration will open for everyone (Track Day Drivers and General Admission) at 9am Pacific on June 5th. Unlike the Track Day slots, we have unlimited spots for General Admission folks. So please don’t stress about signing up right away. You are guaranteed a General Admission spot no matter what, so you can wait until the dust has settle a bit to register.

    However spots for the Moss Miata Area Cruise are limited to 50 Miatas per day, so be sure to click on the Moss Miata Cruise registration link as soon as registration opens. This will take you directly to Moss’s signup page to get you on their list.

    TRACK DAY DRIVERS:
    All track spots sold out completely in just 19 minutes last year, so you will want to have all your info ready to go before 9am Pacific on June 5th.

    When the big red REGISTER button at the top right of the page goes live, follow the Track Driver link. Registered Track Day Drivers automatically receive General Admission.

    Please review the Track Day Driver section on the website to make sure you have all your info ready.

    We have provided you with a complete sample registration form to practice going through the process and prepare all of the fields in advance.

    REMINDER:
    NJMP requires Snell 2015 or later full-face helmets, and your roll bar must meet our technical requirements and pass the broomstick test. (This is NJ State law).

    JZILLA TRACK DAY DRAWING:
    A big thanks to the good folks at Jzilla Track Days, who are generously giving away a drawing for a free track day at Road Atlanta in 2022.

    When registering on-line, answer Yes to enter the drawing, or No on the registration form if you aren’t interested or wouldn’t be able to make it.  We will announce the winning driver at the Saturday Party at NJMP.

    SATURDAY PARTY
    Ready to join 400 of your closest Miata friends for dinner with guest speakers Tom Matano and Norman Garrett?  We’re putting the final touches on plans for the evening and will be in touch by the end of June with details, including how to get tickets.

    See you in October!

    I registered for track days and today I received an email that my ND RF requires a roll bar to be able to participate.

    Sad news for me.  I guess, I am getting a full refund and not going to install one and lose the ability to take the top off.

    Confirmed this even has been cancelled.

    So I asked for a full refund including the Saturday party.

    I also cancelled my Holiday Inn reservations.

    All of a sudden, with all my paid advanced tickets and reservations, I have more disposable income!

    I haven’t seen a dime coming back as of yet but I do have a confirmation email.

    Be well.

    this event has been rescheduled for next year…in July…at BARBER MOTORSPORTS PARK in Alabama

     

    Which is really disappointing for all the Northeast folks that were looking forward to the first ever east coast Miata Reunion.

     

    On a personal note, this could work out well for me.  My HS class reunion is the weekend before…in Huntsville, AL.

    The Miata Reunion event cancellation left a bitter taste in my mouth.

    Previous to NJMP, this event was scheduled at Atlanta Motor Speedway which I also planned to join.  Now it going to be held in Alabama for 2022.

    Despite the fact that Alabama is located in the deep south, I am still planning to attend.

    My plans in joining is not set in stone but it’s good to have a plan!

    Only time will tell.

    I would be complaining to corporate on the deposit thing.  cancellation months in advance should not result in loss of deposit
