Aston Martin Drive & Ariel Atom Ride
Driving an Aston Martin and being taken for a spin in an Ariel Atom on the same day is an experience that anyone who loves cars will appreciate. Getting to drive an Aston Martin V8 Vantage or an Aston Martin DB9 is a treat enough in itself, but combining it with a ride in an Ariel Atom is just adding to the fun! The amazing acceleration can take this nippy little vehicle from 0 to 60mph in 2.89 seconds in the right hands, so you will need to have nerves of steel not to feel a little overawed by the sheer power of the engine. Because the Ariel Atom has no body panels, you can see exactly what is happening with every inch of this powerful machine, and with a professional at the wheel you will be able to see the suspension doing its job.
Your experience will start with a registration session and briefing on safety and circuit driving. Then you will get behind the wheel of the Aston Martin for two laps of the track before sliding into the passenger seat for the drive of your life in the Ariel Atom, which will be at least one lap. The number of laps and specific programme for the day vary by location but details will be available on booking. Each amazing driving experience ends with a debriefing session. Please be advised that until 2014, the Ariel Atom may be unavailable at the Loughborough venue and therefore be replaced by a KTM Crossbow. It is possible to upgrade to a weekend session at most venues for a small fee which can be arranged on booking. Drivers will need to sign a disclaimer in which they accept liability in case they are responsible for any damage to the vehicle. There will be an option to purchase damage waiver cover when you book which will minimise the financial risk to you in the event of an accident, but you are under no obligation to purchase this cover and full details are available when you book.
