WORS Series Registration & Its Benefits
Series Registration begins March 1 of each year
The Series Registration fee is $23 and there is an option to request a specific number from within the number range for the Category for which the racer is registering for an additional $5. Series Registration does not include any race entries and should not be confused with WORS All-In-One Registration.
Racers wishing to receive an Overall in WORS or participate in WORS Team Competition must register with WORS. Series registration may be either completed online at www.wors.org by April 25, 2016 or by downloading a form from the website or using the one from the 2016 WORS Racer Handbook and mailing it with the appropriate registration fee to WORS, postmarked no later than April 21, 2016. These deadlines are to allow for number assignment and notification in time for racers to register for the first WORS event of the year using their series number.
Series registrations after April 25th take place only at the WORS tent on site at a WORS event.
A racer must have a series number for a result to count toward a series overall, WORS team competition, or to pre-register for all but the first race they wish to have counted in their series overall score. Points for series overalls will be figured retroactively for up to two races for first time Citizen registrants, but only one race for all others! (To receive retroactive credit a competitor must write that they are requesting retroactive credit along with their number from the race(s) for which they are requesting retroactive credit on their series registration form).
WORS will inform those registering by April 25th of their series number by e-mail and will begin assigning numbers on April 1st (specific number requests will not be given priority after March 31st). Those registering after April 25th will receive their number assignment at the WORS tent at their first event. Number Plates are picked up at the WORS Tent at your first WORS race of the year.
