Overview

The Ariel Atom has taken the world by storm since it was first developed as a university project by a transport design student.

One look is enough to see why.

The lack of body panels, the fact that you can see the suspension as it works its magic, and the whole look of this car mark it out as completely different to its counterparts. It’s no wonder, then, that it’s been one of the most sought-after cars to drive over the last few years.

Petrol heads are eager to compare it to the better-established classics of the racing world, especially given that it can do 0-60 in 2.89 seconds which is quicker than most Ferraris! 

With its innovative engineering, amazing acceleration and all-round impressive credentials, a chance to drive an Ariel Atom is something any speed-demon will love.

This gift experience includes a briefing from an expert who can answer any questions about the controls and provide advice on how to get the best out of this unusual car, then it’s time to take the wheel and find out just what the atom is capable of! For most people, the limit will be their own nerves rather than the car’s capacity for speed, so white knuckles are to be expected during this activity!

Your spine-tingling drive will last for four to six hair-raising miles. Finally, following your drive, you'll be taken on a high-speed passenger ride in a performance vehicle. The professional racing driver will show you how it’s done, for one unforgettable lap, in either a BMW M3, Vauxhall VXR8, Ford Focus RS, or a BMW sports saloon.

What did you get up to?
I am a self-confessed car nut and fortunate enough to have a performance car of my own. The Atom is a car that balances budget with high end performance and for that reason it features regularly with amateur motorsports drivers on track days. It was for those reasons that the Ariel Atom has been on my list of things to try for a while now.
When I think of Lincolnshire, I think of Lincolnshire sausage, great coastline and old WW2 airfields and now of course-Blyton Park Race Circuit. Blyton Park is home to Ginetta as it is the official test track for the long-established British racing car which makes it a perfect setting for my test drive.
I arrived early, checked in at reception which was busy and full of excited like-minded petrol heads. The safety briefing was light-hearted but with some serious points that were aimed at getting the most from your experience but also to remind you that this can be a dangerous sport at times. Once the briefing was out of the way we all approached the staging area where the cars were coming in and out of and where we waited our turn.
I have been on a few of these days now and I always opt up on the extras. A sighting lap to see the track before I do my laps, extra laps for me to drive a bit longer, and taking a high-speed passenger drive at the end to see how the car handles when driven nearer its limit compared to how I drove it. Yes this does cost more on the day but considering you may have travelled a couple of hours to get there it makes a big difference on the day if you can save a few pounds for these extras. They are very much worth it.
My instructor was experienced and he soon got an understanding for my level of skill. I trusted him completely and followed his instruction's closely and I very quickly became absorbed into how the Atom handled and the feedback it gave me. The drive was electrifying and even better than I had hoped for. The speed you feel is heightened how exposed you are, plus its very real in any case given the Atom does 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, and so it's closer to a motor bike than a car when you think about it! It takes a degree of nerve to drive it fast but when you do, you are rewarded handsomely. I was hooked and wanted more! And still do!

What did you enjoy the most?
Taking control of the Ariel Atom and finally experiencing the hype behind these amazing vehicles!
Top Tip
Trust your instructor and hold your nerve.

Cool
I had a blast in the atom. The high speed car ride wasn't the best, I go faster up the bypass I'm my own car ??????. The queue to get in was I bit of a nightmare but it was dry so no dramas.

Good experiance
Whilst it was good experiance, to drive a ariel atom on a wide open space, the track ( a former W.W.2 airfield), the surface was rough as rats so at speed, difficult to see where your going because of the vibration & bumpiness.

Ariel atom driving exerience
Turned up filled out forms payed for damage cover and photopackage totaling £80 waited in line and was told I was forgotten about whilst everyone else had their go they eventually got this sorted I then got on the ariel atom to which I'm told I'm not allowed to change gear that I can only cruise round in 5th gear this totally takes away from the driving experience it's advertised as an ariel atom driving experience and I couldn't even change gear
