Description We are excited to once again offer a Driver Education event at AMP - Atlanta Motorsports Park in Dawsonville, GA.  To provide maximum track-time for our participants, we will only be running 4 run groups rather than our traditional 5 groups. There will be 2 instructed groups, a solo group and a super solo group.  The super solo group will run with the Extended Passing rules.

IMPORTANT Info: Please read the revised DE Guide and ALL the information listed BEFORE registering.  Atlanta Motorsports Park now enforces a 98db sound limit. This is up significantly from the 92db limit that was in place during our past visits in 2012-2013.  Cars with an OEM exhaust will generally be in compliance. Track cars with open exhaust/straight pipes typically require modifications to be in compliance.  It is your responsibility to ensure your car meets the sound requirements. AMP has also completed major improvements to their infrastructure with permanent bathrooms, a multi-story clubhouse and viewing veranda, paved paddocks, F1 lighting system, easy access to spectator hill, go-kart track, etc. 

We welcome and accept all makes of cars at Carolinas Region DE's.  Entries are not confirmed for the event until paid.  PCA members receive confirmation priority for the first two weeks of registration after which non-members will be confirmed.

Information about the event and the acceptance packet will be posted on ClubRegistration.net.  Please refer to the "FILES" tab when you login to My Events to find links to the documents. 

You must have an approved helmet. SA2010, SAH2010, or SAH2015 are accepted.  SA2005 helmets are no longer accepted and M certification helmets are not accepted.

We encourage you to update your profile and history in Clubregistration.net to ensure you are assigned to the proper run group.

Vehicle tech inspections must be performed by an approved shop using the Carolinas Region Tech Inspection Form. The list of approved shops is included in the "FILES".  Failure to use an approved shop will result in your not being allowed to drive in this event.  Upon arrival at the track, please bring your tech inspection form and valid driver’s license to registration.

Cabriolet/Convertible Cars: Porsche OEM roll over protection in Boxsters and 996, 997, and 991 911’s is acceptable.  All other convertible cars need to meet the minimum standards for PCA DE events which are: a roll bar or roll cage must be installed, which meets the "broomstick" rule (the driver's helmeted head is below a bar placed on top of the roll bar and windshield). Design, installation and materials of roll bars or cages and their installation must meet PCA Club Racing specifications, contained in Appendix A-Roll Cage Specifications of the PCA Club Racing Rules.  All targa tops must be installed unless there is addition roll over protection. All sunroofs must be in the closed position.  We recommend the soft-top be in the up position or the hard top installed. If the top is in the down position, then an SFI and/or FIA approved arm restraint system must be used. 

The host hotel for the event is the Quality Inn located 11 miles from AMP at 127 Beartooth Pkwy, Dawsonville, GA.  Room rates are $ 96.79 Double Queen or $88.79 King under group "Carolinas PCA".  Reserve your room early.  We have been notified by the hotel that there are multiple wedding groups scheduled for this weekend and the hotel expects to sell out of rooms early.  The hotel can be reached at 706-216-1900.  Our group is listed as "Porsche Club of America" and if you inquire about a rate for either "Carolinas" or "PCA" they may not recognize our group.
