Atlanta Motorsports Park (AMP) is a road circuit designed by famed Formula One architects, Hermann Tilke. AMP is a 2-mile road circuit with elevation changes, technical circuit layout, high speed straights and two ‘signature’ corners designed to pay homage to famed European race circuits; 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.

Options Note "Rate Yourself":
In an attempt to create a more ideal run group pairing between driver’s comfort, skill and vehicle capabilities, please rate both your vehicle and yourself from 1 through 10. Please be as honest as possible when making this evaluation. For example:
- A "10" is classified by someone with a great deal of racing/track experience who is driving a high speed, semi-/ full-race prepared vehicle and is prepared to push the vehicle to its fullest.
- A "1" would be someone who is driving a low/moderate powered vehicle on the track for the first time. This driver is eager to participate, but may not be able to keep up with the pace of other vehicles or is 100% comfortable in a track setting.....YET!
Please keep in mind that there are no penalties based on this classification. Final run group placements will be at the discretion of the Z Nationals event staff. As close to an accurate response as possible will help the staff place you in the appropriate run group that will allow both you and your fellow attendees to achieve maximum enjoyment from the Track Day.
