Introducing NASA-MA eSports brought to you by Sim Seats Driving Simulators, the best damn driving simulators in the galaxy! The 2019 HyperFest eSports season is open to any NASA member with an iRacing account. Seven races are scheduled in 2019 and they will be hosted on iRacing by Sim Seats. Take advantage of this series and the realism of iRacing to train for the 2019 NASA Nationals; the first five races will be at the same track, Mid-Ohio.
Drivers may join in on the fun from anywhere! Go to iRacing, under the Leagues tab look for “HyperFest eSports”.
Sim Seats is sponsoring this event and will have 3-5 rigs available to drive in the event at their location on 8500 Glazebrook Ave in Richmond VA.

The number of rigs available for each race can vary depending on the Sim Seats rental/event schedule. No charge for use of the simulators, but BYOB!!
