Have you participated in MBCA National events before? If not, you will want to download the registration package and review the tech inspection checklist. You need to have changed the brake fluid within six months of the event. You also need to have an inspection of your vehicle performed prior to the event.

The Defensive Driving sessions and mandatory Driver's meeting will be held on Sunday, 26-oct. The Time Trials practice runs will be on Monday, 27-oct. The actual Time Trials final runs probably won't start before Tuesday, 28-oct.

MBCA Tri-O-Rama will be here soon...

There's still time to register for this event being held later this month. In fact walk-in registrations are okay. But you need to have your car inspected and brake fluid changed prior to the event.

There's a mandatory defensive driving course on Sunday 26-oct. However, participation in another MBCA defensive driving course within a year prior to the event is okay. The Drivers meeting will be held on Sunday afternoon, 26-Oct.

Hope to see some of you in Millville, NJ. Download registration packet from link in first post for more details.
