How to start racing at AMP in 2018
Famed Formula One driver Ayrton Senna once referred to karting as the “purest form of motorsport,” and many successful racers have started their careers out on a karting circuit. Karting is safe and family friendly, but still an incredibly thrilling sport to get into at any age. However, it can seem less accessible than other mainstream sports like baseball or football. That is why Atlanta Motorsports Park strives to be a one stop karting destination for racers of all skill levels, from the casual concession kart racer to the seasoned driver.
Atlanta Motorsports Park offers a variety of ways to get started in competitive kart racing. This March marks the beginning of a new season of racing at Atlanta Motorsports Park.
