I went to Track Night in America this past Tuesday at Atlanta Motorsports Park (AMP). The event was well run, and AMP is a fun, technical track. They had three run groups divided by experience level. I ran in the advanced group and had a great time. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to experience a taste of race track fun. There is another event in early August. For anyone interested, Randy Pobst does a great turn by turn guide to AMP on YouTube. Just search on "Atlanta Motorsports Park Turn 1". (Turns 1 - 16)
Yes, The pdx's are a great program. Go to every one I can. Track night is a new program offered by our parent organization, the scca. Cost is similar and time slot is much more convenient. Check it out at scca.com. Clyde Stahl
I was reading about this in the magazine I received and was wondering what the chances are of attracting this to Charlotte or VIR? I got really excited about the program and then figured out that Atlanta was the closest one to us.
One of the issues I personally may experience is the fact I am driving a convertible (94 Mustang GT) and not sure when the rules for roll bar will start to kick in.

Quoted from the rules: Are Convertibles Allowed? Yes, but with a few caveats. If your convertible is actually a Targa or T-Top, no problem. If it is a true convertible, either factory provided rollover protection or at a minimum, a 4 point roll bar is required. Factory rollover protection can include a hardtop, pop-up rollbars or a reinforced a-pillar. If you opt to add a 4 point rollbar to your vehicle, we highly recommend one that is SCCA approved.
