How many people are in a class?
We typically run a course for 6 people. Our student-to-instructor ratio is 2 to 1 which allows us to cater to individual needs throughout the course.

You can change or cancel your course date, however, please keep in mind, we do have strict policies and fees for cancellations and changes.
One (1) free reschedule is allowed if more than 30 days before a scheduled course date. Any additional reschedules if more than 30 days before a scheduled course date cost $100.00 each. Rescheduling 29-11 days before a scheduled course date cost $300.00. Rescheduling 10 days or less before a scheduled course date will result in a 50% forfeiture of the course price.
Refunding more than 30 days before a scheduled course date will result in a $250.00 fee. Refunds 29-11 days before a scheduled course date will result in a $500.00. Refunds 10 days or less before a scheduled course date will result in a 50% loss of the course price.
Are there any requirements for me to attend?
You must be at least 16 years of age, in good physical condition, hold a valid non-restricted driver’s license, have at least six months driving experience, meet our minimum or maximum size requirements, a d understand how to operate a manual transmission. You will also be required to sign all Primal Racing waivers and releases. Minors must have a parental waiver to attend the School.
Do I need to know how to drive a manual gear shift car?
Yes. You need to have some experience and understanding of how to operate a clutch pedal and paddle shifters. Once the Radical SR1 is rolling you no longer need it to use the clutch pedal to switch gears because the Radical SR1 has a sequential gearbox allowing for simple upshifts and downshifts on track.
What happens if I damage a car?
While accidents are very rare, they can happen. If you are involved in an accident, you will be responsible for all costs to have the damage repaired.
To limit your risk, we’ve adopted an insurance program to alleviate any potential financial burden that is available as part of the booking process.
Please wear comfortable clothes, closed shoes and bear in mind that you will be wearing a race suit over the top of these clothes for part of the course. Most of our students wear shorts, t-shirts, tennis shoes, and sunglasses. You may want to bring jeans, sweatpants, a jacket and a sweatshirt during the winter months. If you wish purchase driving shoes and other accessories; they can be purchased on the day from our partner Discovery Parts which is located just by the school.
We provide helmets and race suits when required. If you have your own helmet that has a Snell rating of SA2015 or newer you can use it. You also need to have the proper HANS post anchors for the HANS neck device.
Can friends or family come and watch?
Absolutely! Friends and family are welcome to watch at various locations throughout the venue, take pictures or video, and enjoy the facilities. They can even potentially participate in public karting if available. All guests are required to sign a waiver and releases on entry to Atlanta Motorsports Park.
We are a different breed. Our students and customers build the basic skills needed to survive on the track. Then, they can evolve to become more agile, more adaptable competitors. Racing is in our DNA, and it can become part of yours, too.
Being an effective competitor requires a solid foundation. We provide that foundation by offering hands-on racing education, effortless vehicle maintenance, and a selection of vehicles that can help you push to the head of the pack. With our support, education, and equipment, the performance you crave can be right around the corner.
The audacious vision of Formula One architect, Herman Tilke, Atlanta Motorsports Park’s two-mile main road course was recently voted one of the Top 10 Tracks in North America by Road & Track Magazine. With its unparalleled elevation changes and technical layout, it sets a new standard for driving and provides a training ground unlike any other.
We believe our people are our strength. They are the energy behind our programs and the heart of our reputation. The expertise, knowledge, and care provided by our staff are at the centerpiece of our offering and differentiate us from the rest.
