Now you can drive an Ariel Atom and experience its 300bhp and top speed of 150mph. With a lightweight chassis and minimal bodywork, this car is probably the fastest you will ever drive, able to achieve a stunning 0 to 60mph in 2.7 seconds! Before you settle back in the Atom and put your foot down, you will have the opportunity to sample the track in a saloon car. From then on you're free to blast the Atom in what promises to be a truly blistering track session.
Upon arrival, you will be welcomed and then briefed on necessary safety procedures. Next, one demonstration lap by the instructor will follow in a saloon car. Then you’ll get to drive the Atom around the circuit for approximate six miles. Driving time will be approximately the same at each venue. The number of laps will vary dependent on circuit length.

At the Hertfordshire location you will receive four laps in a race prepared E46 M3 followed by six laps (approximately six miles) in a supercharged Ariel Atom.

Bought this Ariel Atom experience through buyagift.co.uk and registered it with 6th gear experiences. Arrived at Elvington Airfield, and amazed at the huge selection of cars there and the professional manner of the hosting company! The Ariel Atom was one of the best cars I have ever driven and I left the experience buzzing and with a huge grin on my face. I also used this experience as a test drive for the car as I am planning on buying one. After driving the car my decision is final and now I am saving up to buy one, watch out Ariel I with be arriving on your doorstep very soon!
Thanks very much Buyagift and 6th gear experience well worth the money!

Ariel Atom by the seat of your pants

It was a great day, seeing all the fast cars racing around the track.
I was very excited about driving the Atom but the gods thought different, as it rained just before I went out in the car.
However this didn't stop me having fun and it didn't stop me flooring it when I hit the straights.
In the Atom you feel so much more involved in the driving than in some of the other cars and even though I only got upto around 80mph it felt like twice that.
I had 4 laps in the car but could have driven around the track all day.
The instructor was really nice and explained everything about how to get the best out of the car.
I'm definitely coming back for more but will now have to think of which other car to try next time round.
Superb!!

Far better than I expected. Very well run. Some people may be more tempted with the more recognisable Ferrari's and Aston's etc, but believe me, if you want a true 'drivers' experience, go for the Atom. Unbelievable acceleration and cornering, just a shame it was over too soon.

Bought me and my bro this driving experience for his birthday. What an unbelievable car. So quick. Instructor was spot on and the track isn't bad either my only gripe is that it didn't last longer but overall it was good value.
