DECLARE YOUR HOME CHAPTER

This year all pilots must select a home chapter in order to participate in the 2018 Regional Series. Your home chapter defines what region you are racing in as well as what qualifiers and final you can attend. Once you select your home chapter, you will be placed into that region’s pilot standings.

The top 100 pilots in each region will be invited to race in their regional final. For those pilots that want to race in an adjacent region, simply set your home chapter in that region. Your home chapter is *only* used for the 2018 MultiGP Regional Series and does not impact your ability to join or race with other chapters. For more information visit our website at multigp.com
