Ariel Atom ATL Driving Experience

Q: what is even quicker than an Ariel Atom at any track, worldwide?

A: an Ariel Atom on racing slicks!

I’ll take the blue one. You hop in the orange. Let’s do this.

The Ariel Atom is well-known as the elastic fun-cooker that shook Jeremy Clarkson’s face apart around Dunsfold Air Force Base in 2007, then hung his cheeks out to dry via a high-speed blast down those world-famous TopGear runways just moments later.

The Atom is now on to generation 3.5, with the much-wider track and chassis making it even more like a shrieking howler monkey around racetracks the world over.

Great to stumble upon this pair of first-gen Atoms in America, which were giving demo laps as part of a teaser to sign up folks for the Atlanta Driving Experience.The timing was not right for a ride or a drive this time, but stay tuned…

Were the Atoms out on the big track? Not for the Mitty – they were in the infield section near turns six and seven (before the big straight.)

Funniest thought at the time by ThisGuy: where is the Ariel’s track? This just looks like a kart track?

In fact, the Ariel Atom is so wield-y and nimble that it excels on tight courses. And broad courses. And everything in between, for that matter…
