Default Sept 8-9 NASA Event at Gingerman (HPDE Only)

Time is moving quick and we're already over half-way through the season. Up next is at Gingerman on Sept 8-9. What makes this event a little different from a tyipcal NASA event is that it is HPDE ONLY, no race or time trial groups. It allows more track time (less groups) and a more relaxing environment. It would have classroom/download sessions that put more emphasis on HPDE Driver Training, on track etiquette, heal/toe (well even tho most of our cars are AT), feeling of the car, and chassis dynamics, etc.

Many of us consider Gingerman as our "home track" and know the track and area pretty well. NASA has not held an event there since 2004. It's good to have them back at this track again.

For the more "advanced" drivers, this event also offers:
- Competition School for those who wants to get a race license.
- Instructor Clinic for those who wants to be certifiied to instruct for future NASA events (and drive for free).
- TT Licensing for those who wants to start competing in Time Trials.

For those who has taken the special offer when signing up for Road America, you do NOT need to sign up online. Simply send an email to dave@nasamidwest.com telling him that you are cashing in the offer. He would sync up your CC info for the special rate (50% off!) and you are in.

And once again, here are more info on their volunteer program to earn free track time. If you have the free time, do it! They always need volunteers and the compensation is well worth it:

Besides driving, South Haven is a very nice vacation town with a beautiful beach and great restaurants. There are several hotels right off the highway and only 5 miles from the track.

I just saw that there's an option of signing up for either 1 day or 2 days ($189, $289). It used to be 2-day only when I started this post.

Online registration is now CLOSED. Group 1 is sold out!

You can still sign up for Group 2, 3 or 4 at the track but there would be a $50 additional charge.
