Drivers, sponsors, friends,
Miata Meetup 2020 COVID-19 Update
2020 started off very exciting for us at KMiata. We decided to turn Miata Meetup into a 2 day event after the success of year one and spirits were high as we started making plans and taking registrations. When we first heard of Covid-19, we never dreamed that it would affect our ability to host our event at the end of May. With each passing day, reality has sunk in deeper and we have come to the unfortunate realization that Miata Meetup 2020 simply cannot go on as planned. Over the last couple weeks we have been working diligently with Gingerman management to try and reschedule to another weekend in 2020, but unfortunately no dates were available. Because of this, we have made the difficult decision to reschedule the event to May 22-23, 2021.
All registered driver tickets will automatically be transferred to our new event dates, May 22-23, 2021. We know that this is a challenging time for everyone, and if at all possible, we ask that you support our small business and this event by allowing your registration fee and raffle ticket purchases to automatically apply to our new dates. Look for an email with more information in the next couple of days. If this is not financially feasible for you, or you’re unable to attend the rescheduled event, we will be happy to work with you on a case by case basis. Please email us at email@example.com. We appreciate your patience as we figure this all out with our ticketing partner.
KMiata Swap Kit Raffle
Our Ultimate K Swap package raffle will also be rescheduled for the new event dates, as we won’t be able to sell all available tickets until we actually host the event. Again, please contact us if this is not workable for you. We really appreciate your understanding and support.
Corona Track Days sponsored by KMiata
Now for some good news. We will still be hosting a track weekend on May 30/31st at Gingerman Raceway. Corona Track Days, sponsored by KMiata, will open for registration tomorrow, Sunday May 9 at 12:00pm EST. This event will be open for experienced drivers only, and is open to vehicles of all makes and models. We apologize to our novice drivers, but since we are unable to have passengers in vehicles or classroom sessions, we are unable to offer our novice instruction program at this time.
We will have Intermediate and Advanced groups running alternating 30 minute sessions both days, so you are sure to receive all the seat time you can handle. We’d encourage all of our Miata Meetup intermediate and advanced drivers to still come drive with us this weekend, and please invite any other track day friends looking for some seat time. You can register for this event here
To ensure the safety of our drivers and to promote social distancing, we are limiting the number of drivers and all drivers are asked to only bring one guest.
Can I apply my Miata Meetup 2020 registration fee to the Corona Track Days event?
No, these are two completely different events. Miata Meetup has been rescheduled to May 2021, and your registration has already been transferred over.
The Corona Track Days weekend is a unique, one-time event that’s available for drivers of all vehicles. Thanks to Covid-19, only 45 spots are available each day, and with approximately four hours of track time available each day, it’s an incredible deal. If you are interested in joining us, we recommend signing up for this separate event immediately.
Can I get a refund for my Miata Meetup registration?
If you are unable to attend Miata Meetup in May 2021 or require a refund for any reason, we will be able to process a limited number of refunds (minus processing fees) on a case by case basis.
Why are you asking participants to roll over their registration until next year?
We’re all trying to navigate this unprecedented situation together and make sure we can still host track days for you! By allowing us to roll over your registration fee to the rescheduled event, you are helping us secure the Miata meetup 2021 dates, since our 2020 Miata Meetup track rental deposit has already been applied to 2021.
Your support, flexibility, and generosity is the only way we can reschedule this event and keep it going for years to come. Miata Meetup isn’t a moneymaker, but rather something we’ve created to help grow this awesome community and right now we need extra support and understanding from you all to keep things moving forward.
