Atlanta Motorsports Park is excited to announce the newest addition to the leadership team in Race Director, Peter Litzenberger.
Peter’s background in motorsport dates back to 1989 when he started out working on logistics and instruction during The Grand Prix of Denver celebrity race.
One year later, his career as a racing driver began and he placed fifth out of 255 in the widely respected Jim Russell Racing School Run-off Competition. Peter continued to race in various series across America throughout the ’90s including, The Mazda Pro Series, BMW Club Challenge, NASCAR Late Model Racing Series, SCCA Pro-Rally, and many more. His racing career culminated in the World Cars Series that he participated in from 2002 to 2004.
Towards the end of his racing career, Peter began to pursue a career in racing instructing by utilizing his vast array of experience behind the wheel to help develop other racing drivers. In 1998, Peter began working as an instructor at The Richard Petty Driving Experience for a two-year spell.
During the early 2000s, Peter expanded his involvement as a racing instructor at Panoz Racing School and later at Skip Barber Racing School. Subaru, SAAB, BMW, Maserati, Audi, and Chevrolet also employed Peter’s services during this period, adding to an already diverse record of experience.
Peter’s most recent instructor experience is at the Porsche Driving School where he worked for 15 years. In this role, Peter helped train drivers in Porsche’s world-famous driver development program, as well as participate in launches, shows, video shoots, and winter driving programs for the German automaker.
This plethora of experience makes Peter more than qualified to serve in a crucial position such as Race Director at AMP. His understanding of motorsport is bound to bring positive change to events at AMP and create a safer, more enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
Peter outlined his main ambitions for AMP as, “long term growth of AMP members,” and “to make everything run like clockwork.”
