Sounds incredible in person too. Incredible car. Looking forward to seeing these things in action.

Great photos. What I'd really like to see if some preliminary lap times that were achieved at various (known) tracks. What were the VIR lap times?? I realize that final testing/set-up may not be fully complete but these ballpark lap times can be used to give some general comparison of capabilities. As an example, I know of several current Radical SR3 owners who are interested in the NP01 but they would like to validate that the NP01 can offer *similar* performance to the SR3. God knows the reliability, maintenance and overall "robustness" of the NP01 will be better - and these attributes are important but all that more impressive when the performance envelope is in the same league as cars where these attributes are less than desirable.

Finally, I really think that there is a strong market for the NP01 on the West Coast and having a physical car here would really help to solidify deposits!

Keep going, guys! Great job so far.... I'm sure the best is yet to come.

Okay I'm new to NASA racing, other than a few enduros I haven't done nay NASA racing, as I've been busy with SCCA Pro for the last 3 years.

For the 2016 season, where will most NP races be held? What races are a "must-do" of 2016? Any other details I need to know? Is there any sort of prize money contingency for a championship?

Thanks for your time on the phone over the last couple weeks Bobby.

As I mentioned to every customer on the phone, I'm keeping everyone up to date with information as it becomes available and also answering any questions they might have.

Series schedule is nearly complete and I think you'll really like what you see. We are shooting for posting it in the next two weeks.

Overall, the Radical will likely be a bit faster car at nearly all tracks because it had a very different design philosophy behind it's creation. How much is hard to say, but the lap times that have been posted already should give some folks a good idea. We're certainly not talking a huge margin here though.

However, the NP01 will allow the driver to enjoy what they came to the track to do, drive! The NP01 was designed to compete against itself in a spec racing class providing the best band for buck performance option available in motorsports today. It allows the owner to drive in a class of cars the same speed in close proximity with more checks and balances than has ever been introduced for a class. It will truly be a game changer knowing that the car you show up with at the track is the same speed as all your other competitors!

We continue to sell these cars to folks that understand this and are tired of spending so much money to go these same speeds and would prefer a less expensive solution that just happens to be proper purpose built racing car with lots of class competition that is only stout and reliable, but built to be easily enjoyable for all driver skill levels that also lends itself to someone that works on his car alone all weekend.

There really isn't anything out there that comes close to offering the value, competition, parity, and fun this class does for the money!
