    Apologies if this is a repost but i couldnt find it anywhere else. I was watching a video by roadshow(CNET) where the reviewer mentioned that the new Supra would come with a free NASA membership and a track day. So i did some searching and I found it mentioned again here:
    https://papamarseck.com/2020-toyota-supra-first-drive-review-better-in-almost-every-way/

    "Perhaps the best news about Supra’s on-track performance is that Toyota legitimately wants you to sample it for yourself. Every new Supra purchased this year comes with a membership to NASA (no, not that NASA, this NASA) and a free track day, too. Go get some!"

    If true, this is wonderful.

    Yeah, they mentioned this in the press briefing they gave us. Not sure what all the details are, but I'm sure we'll know more closer to launch. Dealers are getting trained at the end of June so that's probably when we'll get all the relevant info.

    in the US, is warranty covered for race tracks?

    Only a few manufacturers offer that in Au (Porsche and AMG IIRC)

    Prob not. I haven't read a full warranty agreement by Toyota but I feel like this won't be any different from their standard warranty, which I'm sure voids warranty for off-road/racing use.

    Your warrenty would only be void if you have a part failure on track and then try to get it repaired and make the dumb ass mistake of mentioning it happened on a race track.

    I live next to a race track. Some people remove their license plates at track days so if any pics of their car get posted online and the dealer goes snooping while investigating a repair claim, they can't proove it was them.

    Curious if modern bmws keep a GPS log of where they've been for the last couple weeks or so and if dealers can access that info. I know the GTR in Japan actually detected when the car entered a race track via GPS coordinates and did some stuff, like turning off the speed limiter etc. Maybe flipped a void warranty flag too lol. I doubt they would do anything like that here though, I think that was just to get around Japan's crazy speed limiters.

    I have not heard of any BMW's having this, and I frequent the forums every day.

    Several years ago, I bought a '12 Mustang BOSS 302 and it came with a driving school at Miller Motorsports Park (now it's Utah Motorsports Campus). The school sessions and the vehicle were provided by Ford and transportation and lodging were my responsibility. It was definitely fun.

    I'm not sure if it's simply because Toyota knows this car will sell out in 2019 and maybe 2020 but they're definitely doing a terrible job with getting the info out. This is a nice perk.

    This includes discounts and one free HPDE. So I can assume that taking the car to the track will not void my warranty correct?

    I mean the give you a free ticket. I know with my Lexus and old 86 the warranty excluded such activities.

    Thoughts.

    Is this ACTUALLY a thing or just forum speculation? My dealer knows nothing of this.

    Can someone verify tracking car won’t void warranty?
