A registered WORS racer may only ride for one team. (This includes junior team members.) A team may enter one or more teams in the Junior Division, but only one team in any of the other divisions.

Team Changes:

Competitors who change teams during the series should notify WORS as soon as possible after the change via a team modification form. The team points they have earned prior to notification will remain with their previous team. Team points cannot be contributed to their new team until 2015.

Registration

Teams must register by July 14, 2014. However, teams have through the sixth race to make additions to their rosters. Team points will be awarded retroactively through the date each team member began racing with a WORS series number. Team members who change categories during the season and reregister with WORS will receive credit for both categories.

Download the team registration form below and turn it in to WORS by July 14, 2014. Team scores are figured retroactively back to the first race for which each team member had a 2014 WORS series number.
