Way north of Atlanta, Georgia in Dawsonville (Home of NASCAR driver Bill Elliott) a company is putting together Atlanta Motorsports Park on a 162 acre lot. Today on Monday, August 31st, 2009, Atlanta Motorsports Park announced the “drifters” program and driving school as its newest class of membership.
Atlanta Motorsports Park incorporated a drifting circuit as part of the course design from the famed Formula One engineers at Tilke Architects. Jeremy Porter, AMP Founder and CEO, said, “we see this market as one that is emerging and one we need to focus on.”
Jeremy Porter said, “I have been working with Dan Willie and Tracy Shayhorn of Batlground Engineering to create both a membership program and drifting school that is affordable and makes sense for this market. We understand the limited budgets and we feel that we can create a membership price point that will work with this market.”
According to the press release we received the AMP website will have more details coming in the next 30 days. From what we are told the track has all been properly zoned and construction is underway currently. You can view this map/track layout PDF we got our hands on. The website doesn’t have a date for completion which doesn’t seem very reassuring but hopefully you can be at drift school in Atlanta soon.
