Really sad I didnt plan on going to hyperfest this year. Would have loved to see this. Are you guys going to keep doing it at Hyperfest? Is Hyperfest always at VIR?

Torn between many events this weekend, ended up workbound and can't go anywhere (Carlisle, VIR, Summit Point w/ TrackDaze). Such is life.

Any live feeds planned for the UTCC? Even a "leaving the pits" FB post would at least make life bearable.

Pfft. Just spotted the links in the original post. Danke!
