Either I've been completely outta the loop (probably) or hopefully I'm not reposting this, but I just found out that Alanta's going to be getting a new track beginning next year!

Atlanta Motorsports Park will be in Dawsonville, GA, about 33 miles from Alpharetta. It's over 2 miles long in it's longest configuration. 141 vertical feet of elevation change :)nocontrol). Formula One style curbing and rumble-strips as well as extensive runoff areas, mitigating impact zones and safety barriers.

It sounds like they're sparing no expense in the construction of this place, which will be operational in the first quarter of 2011. They're going all out, and all green, with the track facilities and they say that the track design itself was designed by Tilke Engineers & Architects which have designed many world class venues across the globe!

I'm psyched! :YEA

Same as Atlanta Motor Speedway. I wouldn't waste rubber on that track even if I had nothing better to do! :laugh

Same here, and they seem like they have things on lockdown real nice with organization and everything. Although, I don't like how they do their Novice group...'follow the leader' for the first umpteen sessions! :thumbdown

just gotta sign up for I group :fact

i HATE following 10 noobs and a CR leading them around the track at mind numbingly slow speeds... i'm all for people learning and getting out there, but getting stuck behind them is a fcuking nightmare, if i'm on a race track i shouldnt be taking a 90 degree turn sitting up with my left hand on my leg...

all the guys i know who run B group with nesba sign up for I with SBTT to avoid that shit
