Hi,  I have a newbie question.  Does reserving my racing number with AutoCross also mean that number is reserved for Time Attack or is there a seperate process?

I used this last time.

I just register my 2024 # on the link provided, just skip all the classing info stuff and on the class drop down select “TimeAttack” and select your number. Took 20seconds.

Lol, wouldn't you know it...all of 6 numbers registered and one of them is mine.  I guess it will be painters tape for the season.

Whoopsie, could always try and bribe the owner. Glad this post reminded me……maybe it was me who got your number ;)

Thanks, all done.  I'll be streaming the Beatles "When I'm Sixty Four" while I tear up the track this summer.  In AutoX I will be 5 years younger. :) 

Oh damn I did get your number 😂

Hmmm, more puzzling.  That's not what I got when I registed for time attack.  I'll try editing my registration and see if that pull down comes up.

@Ron Janzen, I hope you don't mind me editing the title of this discussion. I removed "classing" from the title so we don't duplicate information with an existing sub-forum dedicated to Time Attack classing issues.

Getting back to your difficulty selecting your number from the MSR registration page, I think this is the same problem we had last year. Apparently the WCMA reserved number database is not properly sync'd with MSR reserved number pool. It's not an easy fix from what I understand.

I suppose we'll have to live with this gremlin for another year, not unlike registering for Time Attack Saturday only and not being able to rent a transponder or even select Time Attack as your group. That's why you will see the Saturday-only entries shown as Closed Wheel.

The problem here is that the drivers need to register their Time Attack number with WCMA, but the Autoslalom numbers are tracked only within our club.

You can't assume that you can use the same number in both disciplines, because one person may have reserved that number already for a discipline. Therefore, that desired number is available for discipline A, but not available for discipline B.

If you want to keep your number across both disciplines, you need to pick a number that hasn't been already taken in either discipline. Record that number with WCMA for Time Attack, and with the Autoslalom guys here in the club.

Why do we need to have our time attack numbers registered with WCMA? It seems silly to have to register Time attack numbers with them and all the others are WSCC.

Because this is where Time Attack (and Road Racing) keep their car number library. WSCC does not keep separate records of who has what number - Autoslalom is really the odd man out here. Ice Racing is keeping yet again their own separate set of car numbers - I hope that those discipline directors will come around eventually to make it easier for our racers.

Advantage of doing it through WCMA is that during the registration process your car and car number are filled in automatically. I understand (never tried it) that WMCA will automatically check whether the number you want is already taken and will not let you take it. If everybody registers their car numbers with WCMA, then there won't be any of those annoying, time-consuming instances where two people have registered with the same number and are now arguing who should get that number, as both parties had already signs with that number made.
