MotorSportReg (MSR) is our new membership & event management software provider.

Hi Everyone,

In an effort to help manage club business more efficiently, we are moving our registration and communication tool to
MotorSportReg (MSR).  MotorSportReg (MSR) is our new membership & event management software provider.

NorCal MINIs will use MSR software to process new and renewing memberships, to register & confirm members for club events and to collect any event fees, if needed. We will also use MSR to communicate club news with all of our members.

Everyone will need to create a Free MotorSportReg account.

As Simon announced during our Annual Meeting, we are moving to a tiered membership with 2 levels.  If a gap of 1 year or more occurs in your membership, you will need to sign up as a new member at the new member rate of $35. No exceptions to this rule. 

Membership continues to include the main registrant plus your significant other. However, if your +1 person wants to receive NorCal MINIs club information via email – they will also need to create a free MotorSportReg account.

Renewing Member(s) - $25
New Member(s) - $35

Everyone will be receiving a new credit card style membership badges for 2019.  New badges will be given out to those who join and/or renew between now and our Drive around the Bay run on December 9th. If you are not able to attend the December 9th run, your new badge will be sent out to you in the mail before the end of the year.

Instructions for joining MotorSportReg and joining NorCal MINIs can be found in the following document: Instructions. Please note, if you have a second person on your NorCal MINIs membership account, they will also need a free MotorSportReg account.

It’s a pretty easy process, but a bit time consuming at the beginning.  Any question with a red asterisk is mandatory and you must answer it before the system will let you move to the next item. 

If you have any questions, please send an email to info@norcalminis.com and someone will get back to you.
