Dear NASA Florida drivers, thanks to you we have experienced significant growth since the start of the 2012 season, and we wanted to add more events in 2013 for you to enjoy. However, scheduling at two very popular tracks can be complicated, so as it turned out our only mid-spring options were just two weeks apart (April 27-28 at Sebring, followed by May 11-12 at Homestead.) In recent weeks the pace of entries has led us to conclude that this Homestead event – so close to the prior event at Sebring – is not financially viable, so it has been removed from our schedule. The bright side of this cancellation is that you no longer have to choose which event you can attend!
If you were registered for May 11-12 at Homestead, please check your email and reply ASAP. All other weekends will remain on the schedule as planned, and we remain committed to providing the best road course events in the state. This decision was the best one for our membership and the continued success of our region. Thank you very much for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you at Sebring!
New for 2013, DRIVER TUNING is NASA’s affordable introduction to the world of advanced driving instruction. This program will only be offered at a limited number of premier NASA events and is only open to qualified racers, TT’ers, instructors, and experienced HPDE3/HPDE4 drivers. The flat fee includes your weekend entry in an advanced HPDE group and several sessions with a professional driving coach. Methods are custom-tailored to suit your goals and may include in-car instruction, out-of-car coaching, flyer laps for data acquisition, data comparison / interpretation, and more! Available soon for for April 27-28 at Sebring.
Also new for 2013 and specifically for intermediate/advanced HPDE drivers, 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. 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.) Per day you could then tentatively enjoy six 20min sessions and two 25min sessions. PER DAY. That’s more than FIVE-AND-A-HALF HOURS of scheduled track time total, spread across SIXTEEN track sessions! Double Down entries will be available at all remaining 2013 events.
