The 3-day course is our premier program where you will gain a comprehensive insight into professional race car driving. We provide thorough classroom theory, advanced driving techniques, and meticulous instruction, which ultimately results in driving our Radical race cars at their limits. This program is SCCA accredited and after completion, you will have the opportunity to be approved for a novice license.
Day 1 - We focus on racing fundamentals including oversteer, understeer, and braking. In addition to applying these skills on the autocross course, ice hill, and skidpad, we also introduce you to the Radical SR1s and the race track. The goal is to allow you to apply your knowledge in a safe and fun environment.
Day 2 - We teach the importance of track walks and learn proper braking techniques. We teach close-proximity with our side by side exercise and do a guided passing exercise. We then jump into open lapping giving you real freedom. We complete our day over at the kart track allowing you to take what you've learned and put it to the test! This includes maximizing the braking zones as well as wheel to wheel racing and passing.
Day 3 - We complete your final day of training with a more intensive focus on the track. We teach racecraft and you begin to learn how a racer needs to think and adapt on track. We spend the morning hours open lapping with our instructors reviewing your onboard video. We also perform real race starts and restarts to give you an opportunity to train for what it feels like to take a green flag with other cars. We spend more time open lapping in the afternoon. Our goal for this day is for you to develop your skills to give you the confidence to drive competitively on the track.
Atlanta Motorsports Park’s incredible main circuit was designed by one of Formula One’s premier architects, Hermann Tilke. A breathtaking feat of design and engineering, this revolutionary two-mile road circuit is a motorsports masterpiece featuring aggressive elevation changes, a technical circuit layout, high-octane speed straights, and two “signature” corners as a tribute to Europe’s finest and most respected road circuits – Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps and Germany’s Nurburgring.
By blending superior European motorsports elements with state-of-the-art and green technology, Atlanta Motorsports Park brings you a unique, exclusive, and special motorsports experience that can be enjoyed by you, your family, and your friends.
