***ALL DRIVERS PLEASE READ ALL OF THE IMPORTANT INFO BELOW BEFORE REGISTERING!***
Hello and welcome. You have found the info & pre-registration page for NASA-MA's eighth annual "Fall Finale" on Summit Point's legendary 2-mile main circuit! There is no racing scheduled but we are offering HPDE1-2-3-4 and TT plus a Hyperdrive and touring laps! This weekend is dedicated to the memory of NASA-MA instructor and TT'er Cale Kastanek.
Back again as a sponsor for this year's event is Mach V Motorsports. Mach V has recognized for years that what they learn on the track directly enhances the service that they can offer their clients. NASA racers in the Washington DC area use Mach V's dyno for tuning and for certifying horsepower and Mach V can help with just about any need for the street or track. They specialize in Subaru cars, but also are experienced with Mitsubishi, BMW, MINI, Porsche, and more. Find out more about Mach V at http://www.machv.com or visit them in person at 45690 Elmwood Court Suite 170, Sterling VA 20166, or call them at (571) 434-8333.
Racers: You are welcome to enter TT or HPDE4 or HPDE3. You must have a transponder and a current NASA competition license to run TT. You may sign up to instruct and run in HPDE4 or TT if you are NASA instructor certified or equivalent.
Time Trialers: You must have a transponder and a current NASA competition license or TT license for this final TT championship points weekend of the year. A limited number of rental transponders are available in advance, please rent one when you sign up to be guaranteed a transponder - we cannot guarantee that rentals will be available at the event if not arranged in advance. Also please be sure to complete all blanks when you register below including transponder number if you're not renting one. If you do not submit the info with your entry or you do not get the info to us before online registration closes, you will be charged $25 at the track. Note: If we do not get the minimum required number of Time Trialers registered for this event by a week prior, all TT entries will be moved to HPDE4 and the time we would've used for all timed sessions on the schedule will be split equally among the HPDE groups.
Instructors: You must be NASA certified or equivalent. Your entry will automatically go into HPDE4 unless you specifically select "Instructor TT" for $50 below. You must have a transponder and a current NASA instructor license or TT license to run TT.
HPDE3 Advanced drivers: Advanced, solo, passing anywhere with a point-by. The most advanced of you (i.e. at least 5-6 verifiable weekends in NASA-MA HPDE3 specifically at Summit Point specifically) may choose to run in HPDE4 with the instructors instead for the same entry fee, please contact Jon Felton for clearance. NASA competition licensed racers looking for test&tune time may also register directly for HPDE4 below instead of HPDE3.
HPDE1 Novice drivers & HPDE2 Intermediate drivers: Instructed, limited passing (on designated straightaways with a point-by.) You are automatically assigned an instructor so please do not choose the instructor option below. HPDE 3 Advanced drivers are not assigned instructors. Those with HPDE2 Solo experience (i.e. previously cleared by Laura Cobetto) please note this in the "additional comments" box when you register.
Supersize TT'ers: The discounted "Supersize TT" option, if available below, is only for qualified TT'ers listed above and may only be chosen for double track time on top of an existing HPDE3 Advanced or HPDE4 Instructor entry.
Double Down: New for intermediate/advanced HPDE drivers and TT'ers, the "Double Down" is a specially discounted supersize offer meant to maximize the amount of time you spend on track. For a flat rate you will get your choice of all the usual sessions in two different run groups all weekend long - your normal group and the one "below" it. So you can run in TT and HPDE4, HPDE4 and HPDE3, or HPDE3 and HPDE2 (all normal qualifications and rules for each run group shall apply.) Tentatively for this event, that means more than 6 hours of scheduled track time! Please list which two groups you would like to run in via email to Jon or as an additional comment when you register for Double Down below.
OG Racing Hyperdrivers: OG Racing Hyperdrives will be offered on Saturday. This is one HPDE1 equivalent track session plus classroom for $50 and you are assigned an instructor. It 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 Hyperdrive. It is our cheapest & easiest way to get on track at speed. When you get to the membership screen while registering for Hyperdrives, the system will allow you to click continue to bypass this default screen.
Qualifications, experience, and licensing as necessary will be verified for all entrants in HPDE2, HPDE3, HPDE4, and TT. Please make sure the event history in your NASA profile is updated and current. You may be moved to a run group "below" your usual one, or automatically need a check ride, if there is no driving history or information in your profile. If you have any questions about which group you should be in, please email Jon Felton before you register. If your run group is shown as full below, please email Jon Felton for clearance to sign up on the waiting list below instead.
Convertible cars at this event should have at least a 4-point full width rollbar to be allowed on track during all activities listed above (HPDE1-4, TT, Hyperdrive.) A specific list of convertibles may be allowed with factory roll hoops. Please contact Jon Felton ASAP if you plan to register any convertible without a 4-point rollbar.
Touring laps will tentatively be offered during lunchtime on Sunday for a minimum donation of $20 per car. This is a low speed lapping session behind a pace car (no passing, no helmets.) Anyone on premises is welcome in any car or truck as long as there is a seat belt for each occupant. 100% of touring lap proceeds will be donated to charity (TBA, to be chosen by Cale Kastanek's family.)
After you register for anything listed below, you will immediately receive a purchase confirmation receipt by e-mail which also indicates you have been accepted into the event. 7-10 days before the event, you will receive further instructions for the event via email, these instructions will also be posted at www.nasaracing.net (along with the weekend schedule, entry list, etc.) We *may* open up some 1-day entries in various groups at 7 days prior (i.e. at midnight the Friday beforehand) if there is any space left, please check back or inquire with Jon.
If the group you want to register for is on Waiting List status below, please email email@example.com first. Sorry, there is no more "holding" of spots without a Waiting List registration below. If you are cleared to sign up for a Waiting List entry below, it usually means we are pretty sure we have a spot for you. If not, your Waiting List entry will automatically be applied to the next event. Waiting List entries are only eligible for credits, not refunds.
All drivers on track are responsible for any track damage that is the result of their actions on or off the track and will be financially responsible for repair/replacement of damaged track property.
******CANCELLATION/REFUND POLICY FOR THIS EVENT SPECIFICALLY IS AS FOLLOWS: Full credit (valid for 365 days) or refund less $30.00 processing fee, with at least 1 week cancellation notice prior to the event (i.e. Friday November 4th 2016 at midnight), otherwise no refunds or credits.
