Just FYI, this was on posted on AMP's facebook this morning.

"Attn AMP Karters!!! Atlanta Motorsports Park is now a DR Kart Dealer, Iame (All Motors including X30) and parts dealer. We actually will have a full line of parts AT THE KART TRACK IN STOCK for our members! Last, we will run OPEN tires at the next few races and be switching to a new more common tire that the other local tracks use to make cross racing with NOLA, MMX, Barnesville, much easier. SHARE ME!!! More good news to come soon!"

Jeremy Porter and AMP have been working hard to rebuild/build their kart racing program and they want to include GSKA racers. They are adding 4 strokes for the first time this season and will be following GSKA/WKA Rules for 4 stroke classes.

The first AMP kart race of the season will be held on 3/8/2014 and any/all GSKA racers and classes will be welcome. I know many of our top racers,will be at Jacksonville for the WKA Gold Cup that weekend, but this will give an opportunity for GSKA racers to run the AMP kart course without being a member.

I plan to be there. c

Isn't the first GSKA race the following weekend after the AMP race? Darn, sure would like to do both, but not sure we can pull that off. Moorseville MMX has a race the same weekend as AMP. Too many choices...

This is great news on the tires! I believe there was going to be some slack for us GSKA folk anyhow, but had there not been, having to run Vegas would pretty much have been a deal breaker for us.

If anyone's on the fence about making the trek up to AMP, it's well worth it. Everyone had a blast at the test session and was very impressed with the track.

I plan on being there after a "fun day at the track" a couple of weeks ago at AMP.
If you haven't had a chance to go there for a couple of laps or to check it out, you'll like it.
Clones do struggle up the "big" hill if you don't carry enough speed through the corner, but at 400# from a dead stop, I made it up and over.
Just make sure to adjust your gearing for the longer track. Confused

I am afraid it will change to "fun day at the track" again. There are no details about race day schedule, classes, registration, etc.
