FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT KIND OF CAR DO I NEED?
Basically, all you need is a safe rear wheel drive car.
ARE THERE ANY DRIVER REQUIREMENTS?
Participants must be at least 18 years old (16 with parental consent) and possess a valid driver's license.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Dress for this activity is a sleeved shirt (short sleeves are ok, just no tank tops), long pants, and closed toed shoes (no Crocs or slip-ons). Because this event takes place in May, we understand it may be warm during the day at the event. You are welcome to bring a change of clothes and change before and after your session if you prefer.
DO I NEED A HELMET?
Yes, you must have a SNELL SA2010 or newer helmet to participate in the burnout contest. If you do not have a helmet, loaner helmets will be available for you to use.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE TECHNICAL INSPECTION?
The technical inspection goes over various aspects of the vehicle to ensure it will be safe for you and everyone else on the track. As a general rule, an "unmodified" factory vehicle will pass tech without any problems, but cars that have been modified (seats, roll bars, belts, etc...) must conform to the preparation rules. Your vehicle must also be free from loose items; such as floor mats, beverage bottles, loose change, etc... If you'd like to inspect your own car ahead of time to ensure you won't have any issues at the track, you may use this checklist as a preliminary guide.
HOW MANY TIMES DO I GET TO attempt a burnout?
It depends. As long as you are safe and in control of the vehicle, we will give you a few attempts to try and do a burnout. If you are out of control and reckless, that's it, you're done. No if's, and's, or but's. Also, if we give you a few attempts and you still can't do a burnout, don't be surprised if the crowd chants for you to put the nose of your vehicle "against the wall" or heckles you. It's nothing personal and all just part of the fun.
ARE THERE OTHER vehicles doing burnouts WITH ME?
No, only one vehicle at a time in the burnout box.
ACCIDENTS / Damage
Body damage to cars very rarely occurs, but if you choose to spin around inside the box, there is the chance you may make contact with one of the k-walls. Also, if you place the front of your car against the wall, there is the chance you may scratch your bumper and or do additional damage.
CAN I CAMP OUT FOR THIS EVENT?
Yes, this is HyperFEST. One of the best things about HyperFEST is being able to camp out and hang with old and new friends, as well as enjoy everything this event has to offer. If you'd prefer to not camp out, there is a hotel located at the track and many other hotels available in neighboring towns such as Danville, VA, South Boston, VA, Roxboro, NC, and Milton, NC.
IS THERE A MAP OF VIR AVAILABLE?
Yes, you may find it here.
While we prefer warm and sunny days, it doesn't always happen to work out that way. Since the event is in May, showers have been known to make a brief appearance. Because HyperFEST is an outdoor event, we run rain or shine, but that doesn't mean you still can't have fun.
