Default Hyper-Fest @ Summit Point, WV

I live under a rock so I just found about this.

In a nutshell, $40 for 20 minutes of track time on the Jefferson circuit (small one), plus $20 entry fee to the festival itself. I'm a total noob so this sounds great to me. Instructors included.

Is anyone else going?

Hyper-fest is a blast. I have been many many times. Check and see if there are still spots open for the hyper drive. I know the actual HPDE that weekend is full.

I saw the word "Hyper" in the title and the only thing I could think was:
"****, that idiot has a car show?"

I do not think the roads are straight enough or have enough room to do drag races outside of Summit Point. Also there will be way to much traffic. Also you will have fun even if you are not driving. So many things are going there at any point in time.

If i would not spend over $200 in gas to get there and back I would be going for the weekend.

I'll be up there on Saturday, and I'm registered for one of the Hyperdrives. I'm still a bit confused about the deal with the Hyperdrives, though, as it seems like you don't get a time slot until you show up at the info booth.

Was fairly awesome.

Pluses:
  • Driving on the track was awesome.
  • It was cheap
  • Car made it home
  • Jefferson Curcuit area was organized
  • Watching HPDE-4 group made me want to get filthy rich. Seriously, I couldn't even get decent tracking shots of those cars they were so stupid fast.


Minuses:
  • The rest of the place was a zoo
  • Way too many half & fully retarded cars. Hella flush stance stickers. Yeah.
  • Some ---- stole my GPS receiver. FML what are they going to do with it? Some kid probably thought it was a radar detector.
  • Alternator died. Speedometer cable got lose from the transmission. 3rd gear syncrhos sound like they are dying, but not really sure. It's odd.

Review sounds about right for Hyper-Fest. Did you get to go back to the paddock any for the main track? If you are interested in spending more time out there at the track, check out this thread on miata.net. There are a number of NoVA locals who are out at the track almost every weekend doing things. So if you want to become more involved you can.

I had a great time. I have been missing out. Driving on the track looks like sooooo much fun. The lemons race was AWESOME. The owner of the green fancy car was a *****. The drift competion was pretty cool but sorry folks, doing it on the street is more fun.

I want to start tracking my car NOW

The crowd was about 20% cool car people and 80% skanky trailer trash.

Fun time!

Nah I was rather pissed at ******* jacking my ****, so didn't feel like leaving my car unattended. Someone would have probably jacked my hardtop

I'll get more involved once I marry some old money or something. Actually in all honesty next thing will either be a HPDE with Nasa or Friday at the Track thing.

Also summit point tech inspection was a joke. Every single autocross I've attended had a more through inspection

Had a great time at Hyperfest yesterday, even though soviet is dead-on about it being crowded as hell and full of questionable taste (both the show cars and in the parking lot).

The track time was awesome and makes me fear for my bank account. It seems like I'll be getting new brake pads sooner than expected, as whatever NAPA pads the previous owner put on just didn't inspire a lot of confidence after 20 minute of hard braking. I don't think the car would have stood up to a longer session without major fade.

A Chatterbox communicator is going on my list of stuff to get soon, too. There were a couple times with the open top I couldn't hear shut that the instructor was saying. Worse still, there was one time where I only heard half of what he said, and when "Don't stop" sounds like "Stop" when someone has an off-track experience in front of you it's a jarring experience for a few seconds.
