    We are gauging interest from car enthusiasts about hosting a "Speed Laps" event on the Atlanta Motor Speedway 1.5 mile oval speedway and the 2.5 mile road course.

    We would create three different groups: Advanced (up to 100 mph); Intermediate (up to 80 mph); Rookie (up to 70 mph)

    The groups would be separated by each vehicles safety aspects (i.e. safety harness, roll bars, fire extinguisher, etc.).

    The day would give each group three (3) timed sessions on the track. Drivers can enter and exit the garage/paddock area throughout the session to make adjustments, rest, etc.

    Individuals would be able to lease garage space or just pit on the outside of the garages.

    Is there any interest in this type of an event?

    We are also considering creating a drift series that would encompass events on one or two Saturdays each month beginning in 2011.

    Is there any interest in this type of an event?

    Answer here or contact taustad@atlantamotorspeedway.com.

    Thanks!

    Comments like this directed at a venue really make us look like a bunch of dumb kids. Just stop.

    Count me in for both of these type of events!!!

    Price per event will dictate the turn out because most drifters are broke. If the drift events are under $100 you will have a huge turn out. 2 drift events per month might be too much. You could suffer from low driver participation with 2 events per month because a lot of the drivers will have to save up money for more tires.
