Welcome to registration for the 2015 HYPERFEST!   

We are excited about the location for this year and have many new and exciting things planned for this 14th annual Hyperfest!  The NASA portion of the event is for three days, but Hyperfest is the spectator portion on Saturday. Hyperfest will involve every square inch of VIR with on track and off track activities for all ages.  Racing, vendors, drifting competition, helicopter rides, 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 for more info about hyperfest activities on Saturday.
