Each participant is solely and personally responsible for up to $2,500 of automobile damage per occurrence. Vehicle damage is inclusive of both physical body and interior damage, including cleaning required due to car/motion sickness. If you are prone to motion sickness it is suggested that you take proper precautions in advance. The Porsche Experience Center Atlanta has a South Track and a West Track. The South Track is a purpose built 1.6 mile driver development course and features:

Dynamics Area:
Test the speed, agility and lane-change performance on a large asphalt pad designed to simulate unique maneuvers you may encounter during your daily driving.
Handling Circuit:
A one-mile handling course designed to mimic winding country roads with a number of corners and undulations. Here, a driver will learn the finer points of choosing the correct paths when negotiating the curves and proper application of braking technique
Low-Friction Circle:
Experience the over-steer capabilities of a Porsche at the low-friction circle with its uniform inward slope and polished concrete surface
Low-Friction Handling Circuit:
This polished concrete surface is similar to the Low-Friction Circle, except we introduce a series of unique, tight curves, with a mixture of various types of on and off camber corners.
Kick Plate:
We test your vehicle’s control skills when encountering a skid or spin. The kick-plate is a flush-mounted, hydraulically actuated plate placed before a wet epoxy surface. As a vehicle travels over the plate at a safe speed, sensors move the plate randomly left or right to mimic sliding that might occur during inclement weather conditions.
Off Road Circuit:
Featuring a 1:1 slope, creek bed, and a 45-degree vertical descent challenge to demonstrate the expansive capabilities of a Cayenne SUV’s off-road engineering and safety technology.

The West Track draws inspiration from the world’s most iconic racetracks and roads.

Handling Circuit:
This 1.3 mile circuit features 26 corners and 48 feet of elevation change, thanks to our Corkscrew corner inspired by the turn at Laguna Seca, to showcase the capabilities of Porsche’s highest performance
models out on track.
Dynamics Area:
Test the speed, agility and lane-change performance on a large asphalt pad designed to simulate unique maneuvers you may encounter during your daily driving.
Low-Friction Circle:
Experience the over-steer capabilities of a Porsche at the low-friction circle with its uniform inward slope and polished concrete surface.
Ice Hill:
8% slope and computer-controlled water jets creating a wet, low-friction surface that holds true to its name. This unique and challenging scenario tests even the most experienced of drivers. As you begin to
appreciate the handling characteristics of your car, you’ll become addicted to the module.
We have two different tracks that operate independently at our Atlanta location. Our South Track is 1.6 miles (3.1 kilometers) of connectable track modules, and our West Track is a 1.3-mile handling circuit featuring elements inspired by famous driving roads and tracks around the world. Periodically, we offer a special program that connects the two tracks together, for a longer dynamic track experience. We have many attractions onsite in addition to driving:
