Welcome to registration for HYPERFEST 2018 at VIR!  

This will be our 17th annual Hyperfest and the fourth Hyperfest at VIR!  Once again, the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge (UTCC) presented by Grassroots Motorsports Magazine will be a part of this event.   We can't wait! 

The NASA portion of the event is for three days, UTCC is on Friday (with top competitors progressing to Saturday), and Hyperfest is the spectator portion on Friday and Saturday. Hyperfest will involve every square inch of VIR with on track and off track activities for all ages.  Racing, vendors, drifting shows/contests, car corrals, off road activities, helicopter rides, expanded children's area, contests with prizes, music and more are part of this one of a kind event.  Thousands of spectators will be watching you on track! Go to http://hyper-fest.com/ for more info about activities throughout the weekend.

HPDE:  HPDE slots will likely sell out by 4 weeks prior due to the popularity of this event.  You will have 4 daily HPDE sessions on Saturday and Sunday (2 25 minute sessions and 2 20 minute sessions per day approximately). HPDE 1 and most HPDE 2 (unless HPDE 2 solo) are automatically assigned an Instructor.  If you have run as HPDE 2 solo, please put that in your admin notes.  Experience will be verified.  HPDE 3 (Advanced) drivers are not assigned an instructor.  If you are new to NASA please email laura@nasaracing.net if you have questions about which group is most appropriate.  Please list your driving experience in your profile.  

**If your group is noted as full below, please sign up for the waiting list.  We do tend to get several off the wait list with the normal cancellations and additions of instructors, and chances are particularly good for getting a spot if you can get last minute notification (1-2 days before the event)**

Competition School (Friday): Students must have approval from Chris Cobetto to attend, and please e-mail your experience to chris@nasaracing.net. On Friday, entrants will receive over two hours of track time, practice race drills/standing and rolling starts, and will have a mini race.  Classroom instruction and a panel of licensed racers for  question/answer sessions are also provided. Please register to race if that is your intention if you pass.  Email beth@nasaracing.net any questions about the licensing process.      

Hyperdrive (Saturday):  Hyperdrives will be on the Patriot Course on Saturday. There will be several sessions available and  you can register for more than one session.  No membership is required.  Please go to www.hyper-fest.com to register.  A Hyperdrive is one track session plus classroom for $50.  Drivers are assigned an instructor.  This is intended for those new to the sport although intermediate drivers may also participate.  You do not have to be a member to participate.   

Instructor Clinic (Friday): To enroll in the clinic, you must have 30 track days or your experience can be reviewed by Jeff Curtis.  If you pass the clinic and want to instruct that weekend, please go ahead and register to do so.  There is a separate line item for that.   Questions? Email our Chief Instructor Jeff Curtis at trackrocket@verizon.net
