National Auto Sport Association. “We’re the race guys, not the space guys!” NASA was founded in California in 1991 to deliver high quality motorsports events to enthusiasts at major racing venues throughout the nation. NASA has created programs that allow owners of both racecars and high-performance street-driven vehicles to enjoy the full performance capabilities of their cars in a controlled environment. NASA offers many different programs that will allow you to enjoy motorsports on a number of different levels, including our High Performance Driving Events (HPDE), Rally Sport, Time Trial, Car Control Clinics, NASA-X (Autocross), and Competition Racing programs (sprint and endurance format.) Learn more at drivenasa.com.
The NASA HPDE cancellation policy requires a minimum of 14-days notice before your scheduled event. If for any reason you are unable to attend, please send us an email at [email protected] or call us at 844-477-8772. You will forfeit your complimentary track day if we do not hear from you 14-days prior to your event. Regretfully, we cannot make any exceptions to this policy. Please know that NASA events do not cancel due to rain.
Absolutely you can take your stock GR sports car to the track! Do keep in mind that consumable items such as tires and brakes may wear at a significantly increased rate, and are impacted by things such as driving style, track layout, track surface and condition, temperature, etc.
The HPDE Program is our high-performance driving school on an enclosed road course. It’s designed for licensed drivers in streetcars like Toyota GR sports cars. Please know that your track day will start early and run all day. Expect classroom instruction, on-track driving and plenty of socializing with other sports car enthusiasts. Instructors are provided free-of-charge for all beginner drivers. For additional info please see https://drivenasa.com/hpde/.
Please know that you MUST bring a helmet with you in order to participate in your High Performance Driving Event. Your helmet must have a Snell SA 2005 (or better) certification.
As an added benefit for Toyota GR sports car owners only, G-FORCE Racing Gear is offering a one-time 25% discount on the purchase of a new helmet.

HPDE INTRO is available at select NASA events and designed specifically for people brand-new to driving on a racetrack. If HPDE-INTRO isn’t an option, you should register for HPDE1. If you are a certified professional driver you can register for any level of HPDE. If you are still not sure or have other questions, please call us at 844-477-8772.
You may be guided by a certified driving-instructor implementing a lead-follow technique or you may receive in-car instruction.
You can spend some time reading through the NASA rules related to the HPDE program which can be found here. (Club Codes & Regulations) Section 3-8 are what you should familiarize yourself with. As the event approaches, you will also receive a pre-event email with much more information specific to your event.
Drivers in all our run groups need to put big unique numbers on both sides of the car for ease of identification from all manned flag stations on the circuit as well as the control tower. Communication is nearly constant during an event day about which car is first in the group to take the green flag, which is last to take the checkered flag, which just had a spin or 4-off, which is developing a mechanical problem, and so forth – but all of that is based on car number and to a lesser extent color and type (because some may not know exactly what an “Turbulence Gray GR Supra” is, but everyone can usually recognize “Gray Toyota #55.”)
Numbers need to be at least 8-10″ tall and of a contrasting color on bodywork not glass for visibility reasons, so they can be seen from up to several hundred feet from the track surface. They also need to be unique inside of each run group (i.e., we can’t have two cars that are both #7 in HPDE1 and 2, but a #7 in HPDE2 and a #7 in the race group is fine – because they’re never on track simultaneously) for identification purposes, so we know who’s driving each car. Blue painters’ tape or masking tape is preferred because it doesn’t leave residue, unlike duct tape. Or even better, get some custom numbers from the many online vinyl suppliers.
NASA offers events through their regions at nearly every road racing facility in the country. If you don’t see an event currently listed at a track near you, check back for updates and please see the map for track locations.
Your membership expires 1 year after the purchase of your new Toyota GR sports car.
