Atlanta Motorsports Park Track Map

 

 

I recently had the opportunity to drive this beautiful, brand new, F1-inspired race track as an instructor for Xtreme Xperience‘s Supercar Track Xperience. Atlanta Motorsports Park in Dawesonville, GA is a gem in the midst of the rolling hills of Georgia.

 

Cars Driven at AMP: Lamborghini LP570 Spyder Performante, Lamborghini Gallardo, Audi R8, Ferrari California, Ferrai F430, Porsche 911 Turbo, Porsche 911 Turbo S. Cars I rode in: Porsche GT3 RS 4.0, Camaro SS.

 

Top Speed Reached: approx 130 mph after Turn 16 in a Lamborghini LP570 Spyder Performante.

 

The Track:

Atlanta Motorsports Park (AMP) is a road course designed by famed Formula One architects, Hermann Tilke. AMP is a 2-mile road course with elevation changes, technical course layout, high speed straights and two ‘signature’ corners designed to pay homage to famed European race courses; Belgium’s Spa-Francochamps and the iconic ‘Carousel’ from Germany’s Nurburgring. Incorporating these most famous and exciting of all of motorsports only hints at the lengths. 

 

Highlights: Beautiful scenery. The track has signs around the track which are great for indicating the turn-in, apex and track out points of the racing line. The elevation changes were a welcomed feature, but getting used to blind turns over hill crests was a challenge. It’s a highly engineered track. The built-in braking compression zones were a lot of fun. Finding the racing line is tough, but very rewarding when you hit a set of turns just right. The track has a great rhythm. The track staff was very friendly, helpful and attentive.

 

Negatives: The place was still under construction so the paddock was granite gravel which resulting in shiny dust infiltrating every possible crack, seam, and surface or our cars, clothes and equipment. There’s a hump in Turn 11 that bottoms out the cars which resulted in some decent wear on the underbodies of the cars. It’s a tough track to teach a complete novice; especially in supercars.
