Atlanta Motorsports Park Opens Complete Karting Facility
 
 


 

There has been a buzz in the state of Georgia for sometime regarding the Atlanta Motorsports Park. Constructed outside Dawsonville, roughly one hour from downtown ATL, the new country club style facility now houses a 2-mile road course and a 0.79-mile karting circuit. The road course has been opened May 2012, while the kart track is receiving the final touches before the anticipated official grand opening scheduled for September 15-16.

Jeremy Porter, owner/CEO of Atlanta Motorsports Park, is a current karting and has been involved in the sport for 13 years now. The entire AMP facility began around the thought of building a kart track alone. “I wanted to build a big kart track that you could drive cars on the track,” commented Porter to EKN. “The website response exploded, so then we opted to build a bigger track, then a second track which is the karting circuit. Our primary goal at AMP is to provide a family-oriented type facility to enjoy motorsports together, help grow the younger generation of drivers into the professional ranks in the future, and of course to help the local community as much as we can, through driving or non-driving events. We believe with the elevation changes, this kart track could create champions. It has 10 blind corners and helps karters look at precise turn-in points rather than rely on seeing the exit of the next turn. We also plan to bring competitive karting series and events to AMP. Not only regional and national level, but we’d love to bring international competition to Atlanta Motorsports Park in the future.”

The Atlanta Motorsports Park kart track is designed to the Commission Internationale de Karting (CIK) standards, and holds a CIK level ‘A’ certification, the only course in the United States to do so. What sets the track from any other karting course is the elevation change – measured at 43 feet. The track designer – famed Formula One architect Hermann Tilke – used the multiple hills that make up the AMP land space into both track layouts. The facility will also include rental garages, a covered pre-grid area, F1-style caution lighting system for corners and starting lines / CCTV – first one in America, and more amenities in the future.

Complimenting the kart track is the addition of a full kart shop to service the many events and school planned for the facility. TS Racing, one of the most iconic karting industry members, has developed TS Racing Atlanta to be based at the Atlanta Motorsports Park. The added location for the Florida-based operation will be a full service kart shop, in addition to offering schools under the TSR Speed School name. TS Racing Atlanta plans to provide the same customer service and products they have for years.

“We formed a relationship with Jeremy (Porter) first as a customer. He was so impressed with our professionalism and customer service, he contacted us years ago when he was planning this facility,” stated Tod Spaude of TS Racing. “We couldn’t be happier to expand our brand and be part of this outstanding facility. Myself and Bret (Spaude) will be the main figures for our new TS Racing Atlanta shop and the new TSR Speed School.”

AMP will offer storage for karts at a monthly rate of $75 per month and a $55 or $25 “racking fee” based on the level of service you desire. This racing service has two levels to offer.

Kart Storage is $75 per month or $800 per year if paid in full.

The pro level concierge service is $55 each time the kart is racked. This service includes one gallon of fuel, the mix oil added to the fuel, chain lubricated, nuts and bolts tightened, cleaning of kart, review for service or parts needed.
