Transponders Transponder Transponders
Please make sure yours is charged and if it's a subscription version that it's renewed. You can renew them here.
Notes from the NESC office:
Make sure you move your transponder from bike to bike if you race two.
If your transponder is flashing a red light after charging it is probably out of time and more must be purchased through the MYlaps Website.
NESC does not SELL transponders or chargers nor do we activate the Flex units at the tracks.
If you have lost your charger, you must purchase one on line from Mylaps we cannot charge them for you on race day.
Members must own a transponder before they are issued a card, you have 3 weeks to purchase a transponder after joining We do not rent
transponders to members.
A few other reminders:
You must ride with your assigned NESC number, with "Y's" and "V's" and with the correct plate color. The NESC referee made note of more than a dozen violations where he reminded riders.
250 four strokes are NOT ALLOWED in our 450 MX classes, unless you bring written proof that they have been modified, and either show it at sign-up or
to the NESC referee; that said then they cannot enter the regular 250 Lites classes with the same bike.
The NESC will have cards at Crow Hill for members who joined at Central or through the mail this week. New members will not be issued cards until they provide NESC with their correct transponder number
Important! All Minors Racing at NESC events.
All parents and guardians must show photo ID's when signing in their minor rider.
Both parent/guardian and rider must be present at sign-up to sign the release form.
If you are under 18 and your legal parent/guardian will not be with you on race day, a *Parental Release Form designating a guardian for the day must be brought to the track on the day of the event. Two copies of this form are preferable; one to give the track with your race form and the other should be carried by the guardian for the whole day for you.
This form is available on line or at the tracks. It must have the date of the event and a designated guardian named on the form and must be signed by parent(s) and must be notarized before coming to the track to race.
These are not new rules. They are covered in the rule book under E-11 and E23 thru E-25, and apply to all minor riders racing at NESC events. Same rules apply to one-day riders. You will not be able to race without proper documentation.

Notes about transponders
All transponders need to be charged before the first race race, 12-16 hours for a full charge.
Riders with Flex transponders (Pay by the year) should make sure their subscriptions are up to date before the first race. They should connect then to the Mylaps Flex Manager Program to verify the expiration date. We cannot activate them at NESC events because we have no internet connections. We cannot score riders without charged transponders.
If you're renting a transponder from the NESC this year please bring $200. CASH for a refundable deposit, sorry the NESC DOES NOT accept credit cards.
Proof of age required for all riders under 19
