Well, the presses have stopped rolling, and a stack of MotoMatters.com 2011 Motorcycle Racing Calendars are sitting at the printers waiting to be delivered. That means shipping will start some time on Monday (or Tuesday morning at the latest), and the calendars will start winging their way to their lucky owners.
It also means that the pre-sale period will come to an end, and the price will go up, from $19.95 plus S&H to $21.95 plus S&H. So if you want to take advantage of our pre-sales discount, secure in the knowledge that your calendar is just a few days away from dropping onto your doormat, then you have to hurry. The prices go up on Monday night.
The calendar has a double-page spread for each month, with one of Scott Jones' fantastic photos above a month grid containing birthdays for most of the leading riders in the MotoGP, World Superbike, Moto2, World Supersport and 125cc classes. The main feature, though is the highlighting of every MotoGP and World Superbike round on the month grid for easy reference when planning race trips or viewing parties. The center pages feature a double-page close-up spread of the 2010 MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo.
This year's calendar is large (12" x 9.25", or 30.5cm x 23.5cm), and features an additional high gloss finish to make Scott Jones' pictures shine. The calendar is to be produced in a limited run, with no more to be produced once the calendar sells out. Full details of the calendar are shown below.
Special Pre-Sale Discount
As the shipping date approaches, you only have a few more days to benefit from our pre-sale discount. That's a saving of just under 10% of the calendar purchase price if you order before Monday night, California time. US, Canadian and Australian readers, for example, will pay just USD 19.95 plus shipping for each calendar instead of USD 21.95, with similar discounts for our UK and European customers as well.
Shipping starts on Monday (or Tuesday at the very latest), in plenty of time for the gift-giving season. If you know a motorcycle racing fan, then this is the perfect gift to help them plan their year. Once production of the calendar starts, calendars will be offered at the full price, instead of the early buyers' discount.
Shipping in the US will be done by USPS Priority Mail, meaning US customers should receive their calendars within 2-3 days of ordering once the calendars have been produced, Canadian and Australian orders will take a couple of days longer. Shipping in Europe will take place by European priority mail, and take 2-3 days to arrive after ordering. Any orders placed now should be with you by early December, barring any production disasters.
For orders of up to 3 calendars, either head on over to the order page, or select the number you want to order from the list of locations shown below. If you are resident outside of the countries shown below, or would like to order more than 3 calendars, drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your question.
MotoMatters.com subscribers do not need to order a calendar, as their calendars will be shipped to them as part of their annual subscription. Bargain hunters should consider taking out an annual subscription, as the subscriptions include a free calendar every year, a free t-shirt plus the ad-free layout which subscribers are raving about.

Below you can see a sample double-page layout. US readers should note that the calendar grid has been laid out with the week starting on Monday (European style). This is an explicit choice; the purpose of the calendar is to allow our readers to see the racing at a glance, and as the races are nearly always run on Sunday, it is much easier to see when a race weekend is if the calendar starts on Monday, rather than on Sunday (US style). If you click on the image, you will see a much larger version of the layout, which gets the point across better than in words.
