NASA TRACK DAYS

You've always wanted to know what "she could do", but you know the streets and highways are not the place to do it. National Auto Sport Association [NASA] gives you and your car an easy, safe, and affordable way to get on the track! No speed limits, no pedestrians, but best of all-no tickets. The NASA HPDE provides to you a full two (2) days on track with a NASA trained instructor to help guide you through the event, one-on-one, as you learn how to handle your car at the limit. You set your own goals and go as fast as you feel comfortable going.

NATIONAL AUTO SPORT ASSOCIATION (NASA)

The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) was formed in 1991 to deliver high quality motorsports events to enthusiasts at major racing venues throughout the nation. NASA has created programs that allow owners of both racecars and high-performance street-driven vehicles to enjoy the full performance capabilities of their cars in a safe and controlled environment. NASA offers many different programs that will allow you to enjoy motorsports on a number of different levels, including our High Performance Driving Events (HPDE), Rally Sport, Time Trial, NASA-X, and Competition Racing programs

 

GROUP 1 [hpde-1]

This is one-on-one guidance from experienced instructors, as you learn to control your car and yourself at the limit.  From your passenger seat your instructor will guide you on how best to approach a turn, the fast way through it, what gear should you be in, how to brake, and how to exit. Passing is more controlled in the Group 1 Sessions, limited to only the longer straights.

 

GROUP 2 [hpde-2]

Your instructor has determined you have mastered the lessons of HPDE 1.   More advance driving techniques like heel and toe as well as trail-braking are introduced.  Your instructor will ride with you until it is felt that you are able to practice the new techniques by yourself.   Passing is limited to the straights.

 

GROUP 3 [HPDE-3]

You have progressed to the advanced world of high performance driving. You no longer need an instructor in your passenger seat.  The passing rules in group 3 are not as strict.  Your classroom instruction will help you to hone your skills.   On-track you must learn to share the track at high speeds with others.

 

GROUP 4 [HPDE-4]

This is only for the more experienced drivers.  No passing restrictions, except those of good judgment and rules of the road etiquette, apply. You and your peers are now experiencing the joys of doing it right in a relatively  safe and controlled environment! You can now enjoy high performance driving at its finest.
