The September event track configuration has not been determined.
The NASA Nola Region has developed a set of Supplemental Regulations which contains information regarding at track check-in procedures, series points and awards for Race, TT, and HPDE (yes, there will be year-end awards for HPDE!), what you can expect when arriving at the track, plus much more.
There will be an open track day at NOLA Motorsports Park on Friday, September 3, 2021. The OTD will be running the same configuration as the NASA event. (The open track day is NOT a NASA event and is not associated with NASA).
Parade Laps – We will be doing parade laps on the 2.75 mile circuit during the lunch hour on Saturday and Sunday. See the schedule for the exact time. $20 per car each day. You will take about 5 laps behind a pace car at normal highway speeds. Passengers are allowed. You can prepay when registering.
Anyone who is a member of NASA (or a NASA sanctioned car club, such as INEX) may participate. Minimum age is 18 (16 with parental consent).
Camping - You may reserve an RV space which has 50-amp power and water service. These reservations are made online, directly with the track. https://www.nolamotor.com/rentals
HPDE & TT INFORMATION
HPDE drivers are required to get a pre-tech inspection for your car performed by a qualified shop. Click here for a list of shops
. You may also use your own shop. There will be a $50 charge to perform a tech inspection at the track if you do not bring your completed tech form. You also run the risk of failing tech and not being able to participate. Click here for NASA Nola HPDE Pre-Tech Form.
HPDE GENERAL NOTICE - If you do not see the HPDE Group that you want, it is full. If you would like to be added to a waitlist for your group, please email Felix.Bircher@iongeo.com with the group in the subject line.
Please feel free to contact Felix with any general registration questions.
HPDE1 is where it all starts. If you've never been on track before or would like to be guaranteed an instructor, sign up for HPDE1. If this group is full and you have not previously been signed off to run in a solo NASA group, please do not register to run in a higher HPDE group - you will not be allowed to run in a solo group. Email Felix.Bircher@iongeo.com
to be added to the HPDE-1 waitlist.
HPDE 2 is for drivers that have been signed off to drive on their own. Normal passing rules apply. If we have instructors available, you can request to have an instructor ride with you. Please see this notice before signing up.
HPDE 3: Saturday will slowly work up to additional passing by the end of the day. Sunday will be a continuation, starting with limited passing everywhere in the first session and then very quickly picking up the pace in the subsequent sessions. This should better prepare drivers for HPDE-4. Sunday only entries should be aware of this. At many NASA NOLA events, there will be one planned "drill" during the weekend to help drivers experience certain advanced aspects of track driving and better prepare them for TT or HPDE4.
Note to HPDE 2 & 3 Drivers: Advanced instruction for level 2 and 3 drivers will be made available as instructor capacity permits.This may include the instructor riding right seat in your car or you taking a few hot laps in the instructor's car. Email Felix Bircher if you are interested.
HPDE 4: Only advanced drivers with open passing skills are permitted in HPDE-4. All HPDE-4 drivers who are new to NASA must be pre-approved by the HPDE-4 Group Leader or Chief Instructor before being allowed to drive in HPDE-4.
