NASA TIME TRIAL (TT)

Not ready for wheel to wheel racing, but ready for the clock? Then NASA Time Trial HyperFEST presented by Grassroots Motorsports is the perfect fit for you. Entering into its 15th full season of Time Trial, there is no slowing down in sight. Last year's program had over 1,400 drivers nationwide across all 14 NASA regions with over 230 total events.

NASA TT utilizes a car classification system that is easy to understand, and gives HPDE-4 drivers a taste of competition by allowing them to compete for top lap times, in advanced, open passing run sessions, against similarly prepared cars for awards, prizes, and recognition.

In total, there are nine Time Trial classes, including one unlimited, five semi-unlimited, and three limited classes. Each region has its own Regional Championship Series that gives us our regional champions, and qualifies drivers to become eligible to compete at the NASA National Championship Event. Drivers may qualify in any region, and are eligible to compete in the Championships by earning points in four (4) TT event days. Awards are usually provided to our top-level finishers at each of the regional events.  To compete in NASA TT, a driver must obtain a NASA National TT License, which requires the driver to be an advanced level driver or racer.  Driver and vehicle safety are among our top concerns, and we have a pro-active safety program.  Our HPDE program, that accommodates drivers of all experience levels, is the best way for a driver to become qualified to compete in Time Trial.  The Time Trial program bridges the NASA competition pathway from NASA-X to HPDE to Time Trial to wheel-to-wheel racing.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

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.
