    Default Motegi booking

    Is it just me or is the Motegi booking system a rip off?
    I got 100 points to use and each weekend session is 35 points so really i can only do 2 sessions and try to get a cancellation session on the day itself.
    So if i book for the weekend session for end March which means i cannot book for the April weekend sessions cuz i have not used the March sessions when the April booking time comes around.....
    I know it sounds complicated but .....40000JPY for a license which such crappy booking system? Or am i babbling on cuz i got my fact all wrong?

    nah, you got it right! get used to it, or start taking midweek days off.

    It's a fair system tbh. Otherwise the same old regulars would just book the whole weekend and you'd never get to ride.

    It is not really fair to be honest...2 sessions for a month :evil:
    At least 4-5 sessions for the month i was thinking. The track is bigger so more bikes can go on it...so i really don't see the point of giving you 2 sessions max for weekends...some of us have to work on weekdays and do not have the luxuary of taking days off :roll:
    I might go ask them for a refund :badgrin: .....total waste of money :evil:

    yeah and the way its set up P means people of all speeds who own a track bike are on the track together. that means that people whose first time it is...you and people whose 30th time it is....me are out there together. so given that, do you really think its wise to have more than 60 people on the track together???

    every circuit has its booking issues. i personally like tsukuba the best for that. but motegi is a great track and ill take what i can get. you should complain a bit more after you have ridden it rather than before.

    some other notes about motegi booking....

    you can cancel normal track days up till 11pm the night before, and other program days (maruyama etc) 2 days before, without an penalty. but if you dont cancel and dont go you have to send them the cash through the post office...... :x
