Good Day Atlanta Viewer Information Story April 28, 2016

Class Is In Session! Good Day Goes To Stunt Driving School:  If you've ever watched a car chase in an action move and thought "I want to do that!" -- we've got some good news.  The biggest name in Hollywood stunt driving is bringing his stunt driving school right here to North Georgia.

The Bobby Ore Motorsports Stunt Driving School now calls Atlanta Motorsports Park in Dawsonville home, adding North Georgia to its California and Florida training facilities.  In case you don't know his name, Ore is a stunt driving legend, having performed in some of Hollywood's top films and currently holding more than a dozen world records.  The stunt driving school at Atlanta Motorsports Park will offer two-hour or single-day sessions, as well as a multi-day program.  All are open to the public, with no professional stunt driving experience needed!

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken heard "no experience needed" -- and headed straight to Dawsonville!  He spent the morning at Atlanta Motorsports Park with look at this exciting new addition.
