Exclamation 2011 Z Nationals Track Day CONFIRMED!!

Everyone,
As many of you are aware, we ran into a bit of a snag with our Friday Track Event forcing a complete re-evaluation of the event.

Originally, we had arranged to have the soon to be completed Atlanta Motorsports Park facility as the host for the track event. This was going to be a change from the usual Little Talladega Gran Prix Track used in past years. The track is slated to be an incredible facility with a lot of amenities, however it has fallen behind schedule on construction repeatedly. Following a status update on the track, we all agreed that continuing forward with the Atlanta Motorsports Park facility posed to great a risk to the whole venue. We all believed that the track portion of Z Nationals is an integral part and would cause the event to suffer if it was axed. Thus, we began searching for a new track to play host.

Now for the info you have all been waiting for!.....

We have just confirmed Atlanta Motor Speedway as the new track venue for the 2011 Z Nationals. Commonly used for NASCAR style events, this super speedway oval actually has a 2.5 mile infield road course that is very nice. For our event we will be using 2 of the 4 high banked turns...for that added thrill factor. The 24 degree high banked turns are incredible and something that not many people get the chance to experience at speed!

The only UNFORTUNATE drawback to change of venue is that the actual date of the venue has changed as well. Originally scheduled for Friday, September 23rd, we have been forced to move the track day to Sunday, September 25th. We sincerely hope that this does not dash anyones hopes of attending or participating in the track event, but we believe that MORE people will be able to attend since it will now be on the weekend (rather than a Friday work day).

A total of 40 spots will be available (with the slim possibility of extra spots if necessary). Pricing for this year stays relatively the same at $195.00 per participant. We are also, again, providing in-car instructors to all participants! Slated as a High Performance Driver's Education event, this is a great way to get on track for some fun with other Z's! We will also have garage spaces available on a first come, first serve basis (*more details to follow on this)

Non-participants can also join in the action as well! We will be having other distractions available throughout the day including a SCCA Solo II Competition outside of the track (in the front parking lot); Parade Laps during the lunch break for the kids and family members and ride alongs with Instructors. We want this to be family friendly event and something that everyone can enjoy.

Here is preview of the course layout for the track participants. Turns #1 and #2 will be used. We will also be using the optional chicane (indicated with the dashed line) at turn #3. We WILL NOT be using the high banked turns #3 and #4 due to safety concerns.





Additional info pertaining to registration, side distractions, etc will be following shortly! As mentioned in other posts, the event hotel will be back at the Hampton Inn in Breman. Attendees for the 2011 Z Nationals should plan on staying there unless they chose otherwise. We will NO LONGER be using th event hotels in the Dawsonville area.
