Driving / Ariel Atom Passenger Taster Experience
Ariel Atom Passenger Taster Experience
Every so often a car comes along and changes the way we think. Usually these cars are sports cars or track cars. At the time, only a few people recognise the significance. They seem unusual or without purpose. Then, ultimately when the true purpose of that car is understood, it becomes a classic and an icon.
The Ariel Atom is one very much such a vehicle.No doors, no roof and no compromises. If you bought one you won't do your shopping in it, or give lifts. You probably won't take it out for the evening. What you will do, is drive it.
With the Atom, in a design sense, form follows function, leading to a shape that has a particularly specific purpose. It's unique, original and nothing else comes even remotely close in terms of looks and performance.
Using the best in race car engineering technology, with quality components the Atom easily outclasses every car in its field. And in terms of pure performance, the Atom leaves everything else standing in its thunderous wake. By that, we mean practically any vehicle.... yes any..... yes, even hyper-cars.
If you want a car for serious motor sport or ultimate thrills, the Atom delivers.
Of course piloting a car like this takes experience. Unfortunately the Ariel Atom is not available for customers to drive but is instead offered to the those who wish to experience what the more extreme end of motor sport is like as a hot passenger lap Atom experience, piloted by a real test driver.
The activity takes place at a choice of airfields/circuits - the perfect places to experience the freedom of these track cars.
Have your horizons expanded around our coned circuit or tracks in the UK. With mind blowing power and performance this will give you a real insight of performance motor sport.
AVAILABLE TO JUNIORS AND TEENAGERS
Its not just the grown ups who get to enjoy our Ariel Atom.
We provide this hot lap experience for juniors and teenagers as well, often as a birthday gift or a special surprise from parents or relatives. Of course, we take full care of your youngsters and are fully trained and equipped.
Originally a World War II RAF station, the venue has been modified since 2011 to now be an amazing race track with technical corners and features and largely tarmac run-off areas. We have cones laid out to guide you through the best lines of this amazing race track.More info about Blyton Park
East Fortune (b)
Our circuit at East Fortune is based on the old airfield, right next to the Museum of flight. Approximately 25 minutes from Edinburgh heading east along the A1 is very easy to find if you follow the signs for the Museum of flight.
This large facility allows us to set out a challenging yet safe track for you to come and enjoy the driving experience.
Corners of varying difficulty and tightness will allow you to assess the handling of the cars while the back-straight allows you to relax and enjoy the power of these awesome vehicles, in a very safe environment.
Please try not to look at the old RAF bombers and other aeroplanes in the background while concentrating on driving the cars! It truly is a beautiful part of the country.More info about East Fortune (b)
Kirkbride Airfield conveniently located just outside Carlisle is a spectacular site. Historically opened in 1939 and owned by the RAF until 1960, the runway is perfect for a fast flowing, technical and tremendously entertaining coned and kerbed circuit developed by our northern track design team, Andy Gordon & Scott Robson (both current racing drivers/instructors) . With a main straight/runway some 1.2kms long there is ample room for the experience customer to witness the awesome performance of our Supercar fleet in complete safety.
It's probably one of the most picturesque airfields in the UK situated in the North West corner of Cumbria, with the imposing fells of the Lake District to the East and the Solway heritage coast on the West. Easy to find, just 9 miles west of Carlisle it makes an ideal location for your Supercar adventure.More info about Kirkbride Airfield
