ABOUT EXCITEGP ROUND 3:
ExciteGP is style focused grassroots competition drift series put on by iTrack Motorsports. These events are designed to give drivers maximum seat time. With open drift sessions and hot lapping qualifying, there is no shortage of driving. For ExciteGP, all cars are required to have all bodywork, painted, and complete.

ExciteGP Round 3 will kick off on Saturday September 18th at Lanier Raceplex in Braselton, GA. We are extremely excited to be back at the beautiful Lanier Raceplex oval to battle for the final time of 2021! This will be the biggest and baddest ExciteGP finals to date! We believe this track will make for extremely close battles and of course killer big entries!

The event will operate the same way most track days do. Saturday, we will run three (3) separate run groups that will alternate throughout the start of the event, starting at 11am. At 3:00pm, judges will begin making their top 16 brackets for Clubsport and Legends classes. The track will remain hot lapping during qualifiying and judges will take notes on each drivers driving to build a top 16. (No BS qualifying runs) At 5:30pm, we will take a break to do a photo shoot with all of the cars, announce top 16 for both classes, and line up and start the competition for the Legends class. Drivers will battle in a Top 16 bracket until a winner is decided. After Top 16, we will open the track again to hot lapping.

On Sunday morning, we will fix anything we need to on track and have a drivers meeting at 11am. At noon we will kick off the Clubsport Top 16 finals. Once the top 16 battles are over, the track will be open to hot lapping until 7pm when the event is over.

No driver is required to compete in the competition and not running the competition has no effect on seat time! You can just sign up and not compete!
