NASA certified instructors:
Please be sure to have your instructor logbook at the track. Not yet and instructor and want to be, or instructed with other groups but not NASA? Please contact email@example.com to discuss becoming a certified NASA instructor.
Please remember to return your transponder before you leave the track. A charge of $400 will be issued to your card on file if the transponder is destroyed, never returned, or lost. Weak signal is a common problem with poor placement and can result in sporadic timing results. Please ensure a clear signal to the track when choosing a mounting location.
A HyperDrive is an introductory one track session plus classroom you are assigned an instructor to ride with you. This is intended for those new to the sport although intermediate drivers may also participate. You do not have to be a NASA member to participate in the one session hyperdrive.
