    I'll post the link to live timing once I'm there and have everything set up but for now we have move in info from the AMA -

    2019 AMA Vintage Grand Championships, July 5-7, 2019

    COMPETITOR PADDOCK PARKING GUIDELINES

    GATE TIMES/PARKING INFORMATION

    1. Gate opening times on Thursday July 4, 2019. (No entry into the facility prior to these times).

    • 9 a.m. - Ross Road Gate for MX/Off-Road Racing Competitors only.

    • 9 a.m. – Gate 3 for Roadracing Competitors only.

    • Both the Ross Road gate and Gate 3 will be open 24 hours beginning Thursday.

    2. Any early arrivals prior to Thursday July 4 at 9:00a.m. will be directed to a staging parking lot off sight.

    3. Due to issues from the Fire Marshall, parking spaces will be 25’x40’ as marked off by Mid-Ohio Staff. All fire lanes must be respected.

    4. Marking off space for competitors prior to the Thursday July 4th 9am opening WILL NOT be allowed. Any marked off space will be removed prior to opening the gate at 9 am.

    5. We highly recommend all parties be present when parking and setting up your pit space. If you come in with a vehicle after the official gate opening at 9 a.m. and try to mark off a large area for friends, the AMA will not be responsible for any “saved space” issues.

    you were just a lowly club racer then... I'm sure they'll roll out the red carpet for you this time!

    The could very well close the paddock after a certain point to keep people from parking badly. I'll try to find out for sure tomorrow.

    Yeah it can happen and a warning is always a good thing.

    Just wondering when and in what form VMD refunds may be given. My races 11 & 13 were canceled for Sunday 7/7. Asking because I'll be attending Grattan next weekend and if certs are going to be issued I'd like to use them there.

    Thanks

    Working on it with AMA - it will not be WERA credits because we don't keep any of the money from it.

    So an update on the VMD points - we are going to double them for the Saturday races that did not get to run Sunday. Was hoping to do it today but it's going to take a lot more manual work than I thought as the system is only set up to double point entire events which would give double to those who did get to run their second race so that doesn't work. I'll probably have to create another entire event and put the double points classes/results in that one manually so it'll have to be after I get back from Grattan, sorry about that. The money end of things is still being sorted.

    Got the points done - basically what I did was use the Saturday results to do finishing positions for the Sunday races. If a rider wasn't entered for Sundays version of a class then I slid everyone behind them up a spot. If a rider was only entered for Sunday I just did them as a DNS. Double checked all of those that didn't enter Sunday and didn't see anyone who is chasing a points championship, most just run VMD only so I don't think it'll screw anyone over doing it this way.

    Updated it all online along with the National Vintage points as well as making sure everyones grid spots at Nelson will be correct.

    Refund/credit stuff is being handled by the AMA and they have a very corporate type structure so keep being patient, when I have more news on that end of things I'll let you know.

    Never got my refund for 2 races, can you guys look into it or is there someone at AMA I need to contact?

    Email me.

    One thing - missing the Saturday races that did get run Sunday morning doesn't get you a refund. Those are for the ones we couldn't run Sunday afternoon.
