Can I participate even if I've never raced before?
Yes! While there will be experienced racers on the track, you're welcome to show up and see if racing is for you. There will be open practice before the real racing begins so you can get comfortable with the track.
What do I need to bring besides my bike?
Bring your own riding gear. It is also suggested that you bring a power source for charging your battery, or bring a backup battery. Otherwise, bring a full charge and keep an eye on your battery life!
What’s the raceday schedule?
There will be an open track for Surron racers from 3-4 pm. The Light Bee races will be held as part of AMO's evening festivities, starting around 5-6 pm. Riders are guaranteed 15 minutes of pre-race practice followed by heats and final rounds. Number of laps and racers in the finals will depend on turnout and track size.
Will there be prizes?
Yes. The top 3 at each race will receive a trophy and prizes/payouts (TBA).
