    I just sent an email to someone in the office up at LRP looking to get in contact with whoever is heading up this little get together.

     

    stay tuned.  the club will definitely find some way to be involved with this.

     

    EDIT:  Walter Irvine is heading up this event…I have sent him an email and left phone message.  Hopefully he will get back to me soon

    Had an interesting conversation with Walter Irvine about this event…he is the driving force behind getting this event up and running.

    the idea is to make this an ANNUAL gathering of the clan…which is a great idea!

    Big main track events will be three actual race groups…and a HPDE group.  the MiataCross on Friday will be MIATAS ONLY…run like their own lapping days that they do all year long.  Two 4 hour sessions…limited number of cars…about 20 as far as i know…that info will come in tomorrows conversation. Walt seems to think that these sessions will fill up quickly. I know at least one clubmember has signed up already!!

    the other component not part of the Friday/Saturday activities is a Sunday car show for Miatas only…in a separate area from the FCP Euro car show that is happening in the A paddock like last year’s Trunk or Treat gathering…this is an idea that is still percolating…not fully brewed yet.

     

    As more information becomes available, i will share it.  Walt and I are supposed to talk again tomorrow.

    there is an event page being added for Clubmembers to sign up so we have an idea on how many folks are interested. A really good showing for this will go a long way towards making this an annual thing.

     

    and here’s an interesting tidbit…the year end shootout is also running on the Proving Grounds on saturday.  there is usually a few miatas in that also.  Lots going on all around the place all weekend!!

    Just talked to Jocko up at LRP…facilities manager.

     

    Camping will not have assigned spaces…first come, first served

    The area for campers and trailers will be past the restroom building on the left on top of the berm/plateau overlooking the left/right area of the track…perfect viewing area for watching the races and on track activity

    Extremely interesting! a bit confusing on the ticketing. I want to autocross and show in the corral as well…

    looks like autocross is $250 for a 4hour session 😬 maybe too steep for me.

    I also signed up for the Friday afternoon autocross session pending my Lime Rock Auto-X membership club being valid for this event. I’m not too optimistic, we’ll see what Lime Rock (Stephen Huntley) says on the matter.

    Hopefully I can be there!

    A little bit of clarification…the autoX is all day Friday…two sessions

     

    The Corral will be both days as far as i can see.

    I was on a lengthy conversation with Mike Destefano of LRP earlier this afternoon.  the corral participants will also be doing PARADE LAPS on the big track as part of the additional fee.

    I just received a letter he drafted this afternoon with a little more information…including a DISCOUNT CODE that will be activated on MONDAY AFTERNOON.

    Yes, i did inquire about what about the folks that have already paid…he’s working on something for those that jumped in early….and the registered autoX participants will get free admission on saturday

    I have sent message to Walt and Mike with several questions

     

    Discount code up on Monday?

    AutoX club members able to use this as one of their events?

    Car corral on Friday and Saturday with Parade laps?..or just Saturday?

     

    As soon as those questions get answered I will put the information here

    The discount code will not apply to the autoX…only the weekend ticket and car corral…as far as i know at this point, so don’t get your hopes up on an autoX discount

    Just FYI, I had confirmed with Stephen Huntley at LRP there is no discount code for the MiataX event.

    Does anybody know the answer to my questions below?

    The pricing is very confusing. So is it $25 or $40 and is that per car or per person?

    I guess no discount?  thanks if anybody knows. I suppose I could always call them.

    As I understand it the $25 is per attendee, the $40 is per car to enter the coral. I’m not sure what is going on with the discount code, I haven’t tried paying yet.

    Of course my phone started blowing up shortly after 8am this morning….I just had a nice conversation with Mike up at LRP.  the DISCOUNT CODE thing didn’t happen yesterday because they had a glitch…not to worry.  they are working on it. he will be setting up a Nutmeg Miata Club members only unique 20% discount code today.  As soon as that information becomes available, I will post it here, and send it to Angela for general membership distribution.

     

    things happen…they are working on it…just sit tight and it will happen..  This event is definitely gathering steam and a couple bumps in the road are to be expected.

    He is expecting at least 30 members to use that unique code…and I certainly hope that people come out for this. The discount code will apply to the weekend ticket and the car corral…not the autoX.

    This just in from Mike up at LRP

     

    Thanks Joe. I wanted to confirm that the MIATACON23 code is active on our website (for general Miata Clubs)

     

    i have created your own Nutmeg Miata code which can be used for general admission tickets or car corrals and that is: NUTMEG23.

    This will get you guys $10 off car corral passes and $5.00 general admission tickets, so pretty much a 20% discount.

     

    I just now got my corral ticket…the discount code works just fine…

     

    NUTMEG23 when prompted to Unlock the code…

    thanks Dave,

    that makes sense. So with the discount of $5.00 of the general admission its only $20 each person and with the $10 of coral pass its only $30 per car.

    Good deal!

    Wow all very cool. I used the nutmeg code for the car corral and it worked perfectly. I’m going to hold off on the autocross for now and see if my “fun budget” allows for it later. Might fill up quick but so be it.

    Does the car corral ticket include General Admission? I’m planning on taking  1 person with me. If I buy the car corral pass, do I just have to buy 1 General Admission for the other person?

    I talked to Steve over at Planet Miata in PA today.  Looks like they will have some sort of presence at Miatacon.  couple of racecars and possibly a vendor booth setup of some sort.

     

    These guys have been in the previously loved Miata parts business for many years.  I have been to their shop. They have a warehouse full of stuff. If you are looking for something NA/NB related…they usually have what you are looking for. I got an absolutely GORGEOUS rear finish panel for a clubmember car last month.

     

    Give him a call…if you don’t need it quick,maybe  bring it to MiataCon. Tell him Joe sent ya

    Yeah I’m really looking forward to it. I’m still on the fence about autocross but I might just bite the bullet. I took the whole weekend off work because the featured mark of the FCP Euro meet on the same Sunday is VW so I’ll be driving to Lime Rock 3 times that weekend 😂

    A little update…

     

    I had a conversation with Steve Huntley, the LRP autoX guy, on thursday afternoon.  During the course of our conversation we did discuss the cost of the autoX.  Well, he did verbally offer NMC members a $50 discount, IF we can get 10 members to sign up, morning or afternoon.  This would be applied retroactively once that number is reached.

     

    I am waiting for WRITTEN verification of this offer.  (taking a page from the book of Bob…gotta have a paper trail!!)

     

    Stand by for further updates…I am trying folks!!

    So as of 10/2 here is the updated list of those paid or definitely planning to pay and go, and will promise to do so, so as long as we get the -$50 off on entry fee.   Again we are looking to CONFIRM 10 names on this list for that to happen!!!!!  3 more to go!!

    Joe is confirming a few things with regards to the Auto-X driver and what that ticket is good for for the weekend .  (I.e. do you have to pay for entrance the Miata Con on top of the auto-x entry fee *usually not*. , does it qualify you for Saturday gate entry (come by again and enjoy the MiataCon stuff happening the next day included *** not sure***).   This would be an additional saving if $25 or $20 with the nutmeg23 code.  But the point being it is good to know for sure.  Which Joe hopefully will update this thread soon once he finds out for certain.

    I mentioned to him, does a passenger spectating the auto-x that arrived in the driver’s car get in for free… have to ask..

    Should those of us promising to pay (on the list already – not paid) await some promo code before signing up?ight just be 2-3 of us.

    I ask cause it’s easier to discount before we buy then refund us I assume.  But if it’s easier for us to pay first let us know.

    AutoX sign up is directly thru the Lime Rock webpage…there are tabs there for morning and afternoon sessions

     

    I am still waiting on the powers that be to get back to me on how they are going to handle the NMC discount for those that have NOT paid, and how they are doing the rebate for those that HAVE paid the full price

    The NUTMEG23 discount is for gate and corral

    The powers that be have responded, and the last two that had not paid got their discount code and are in.  so the others on the list can start looking for their rebate this week

    OK…here’s another update

     

    Those that signed up for the autoX (see the list below) and paid full price…check youe email.  Because we came up with the numbers that they asked for, the $50 rebate has been applied.  I know I got mine!!…so did Angelo

     

    There were several that used the special discount code that was made available also…so everyone should be all set!!

     

    now lets get the overall attendance numbers up!!…the special NMC discount code for gate and corrals

     

    NUTMEG23

    must be used for advance purchase only…not at the actual gate the day of.  That code gets you 20% off gate and corral.

    Weather’s indeed looking decent so far! Hoping to get plenty of hot Miatacross laps in on Friday as I have to bug out early or right at 5. Any idea what time to get there on Saturday? The ticket says 7am but uhhhh… yeah. That ain’t happening lol. I don’t want to miss anything (especially parade laps). Gotta figure out how I’m gonna have time to detail both of my cars before next weekend, probably a Friday morning last minute situation.

    Parade laps for car corral folks are supposed to be happening at lunch time…whenever that is…

     

    Saturday arrival?…earlier the better

     

    And I just found this little tidbit in the Lime rock email this morning

     

    Celebrate & socialize at the MiataCon Mixer! Located next to the Infield Chalet, stop by for music, karaoke & FREE snacks with fellow Miata enthusiasts! The MiataCon Mixer will take place from 4:30PM – 7:30PM on Saturday, October 28.

    Lime Rock Lager will be available for purchase, with free soda, water, and campground snacks (think smores, hot dogs, and the like) available for all!

    It sure is nice to know the weather is going great.  It basically rains all the time lately.

    Here is the proposed time schedule for the event.

    Looking forward to see everyone at Miatacon.  It is probably going to be much better than going to Miata Reunion!

    Lots of different clubs will come so let’s get a good club showing!

    Was just looking at the event page signup list…which i KNOW is incorrect because we have 11 members signed up for the autoX and not all of those names are actually on that list…

     

    Hopefully there will be more members signing up this week…we really need to make a good showing at this one folks

    I just checked motorsportsreg.  I apparently now owe $50, and my registration is not complete until payment is made – although I paid in full and got the $50 discount email.  Also, I don’t see any entries listed.  Is there another place where we can see who’s registered?

    I have asked for the entry list also…and was denied due to ‘privacy concerns’…which is a load of crap.

     

    You paid…got your rebate…just show up

    Hi…..Just got my coral and gen admission  tickets…..the discount code does not appear to be working anymore but I was able to call a real sweetheart named Jen at Limerock ticketing and she put it thru for me.  The number is 860-435-2000….Certainly worth the phone call for us late stragglers…..see you all Saturday..

    For those wondering when to be there on Saturday….I know 7am is early for me but I was told you would need to be there for a meeting at 11am if you want to do the parade laps….

    FYI I just got an email telling me to arrive no earlier than 12:15 for the afternoon session tomorrow… We can’t hang out earlier and watch the racing? Seems a bit ridiculous. Oh well, more time to get things cleaned up for Saturday.

    So is it really confirmed that on Saturday spectators of AutoX and the track sessions can’t arrive early in the morning to watch? That was my original plan and then participate in the ND corral around lunch. Seems really, really odd they would do that

    Saturday’s Auto-X is the FCP Euro end of year finale / invitational only.  And it is for the fastest cars of the year (all cars types).

     

    That is separate from MiataCon.

     

    You can use your spectator / corral to get in anytime tomorrow.

     

    If you were in Miata-X TODAY Friday afternoon session 1-5 then there is an arrival restriction. I hope that helps.

    I found the video from LRP’s live feed at MiataCon.  The link is cued to the beginning of the parade lap.  If you’d like a photo of your Miata on the straightaway, just do a screen shot and paste it into an app like Paint, and save it as an image file.
