What is an Ariel Atom Driving Experience?
When it comes to the perfect driving experience car, what do you really want? Lightweight, good power and brilliant handling, right? In which case, the Ariel Atom might just check all those boxes.
Lightweight? Of course! The Atom weighs just 612 kg, about half the weight of your average city car.
Power? Definitely - the Atom produces 300 bhp from its 2.0 litre supercharged engine, pushing the car from 0 - 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds, matching the time of the incredible McLaren 570S.
And finally, handling. The Atom handles with pinpoint accuracy. Able to hit every apex you point it at, the Atom also lets you see exactly where your tyres are going thanks to its exoskeletal chassis.
Where Can I Drive an Ariel Atom in the UK?
The Atom is undoubtedly a lightweight track weapon, and is available for you to drive at a number of venues across the country. You could experience the tight corners of Oulton Park, the straights of Silverstone, or get to grips around Dunsfold Park, the home of the Top Gear test track. Wherever you are in the UK, each of the track options will let you experience everything the Atom has to offer.
We also have a number of experiences that will let you compare the performance of the Atom with that of its much bigger more powerful supercar brethren. You could take on a Ferrari, Porsche or even an Aston Martin together with the Atom on our range of combined Blast and Thrill packages. These experiences will let you get behind the wheel of up to six supercars of your choice, including the Ariel Atom.
The Atom is certainly one of the more interesting cars in the TrackDays fleet, and while it may not have the luxurious leather seats of an Aston Martin or the beautiful looks of a Ferrari 458 Italia, the Atom doesn’t need any of that, as it has been built with one purpose in mind – the perfect driving experience car that will live long in your memory. After former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson described the experience as being 'the time of my life', you'll agree that a drive in the Ariel Atom track day is very unlikely to leave anyone disappointed.
Above, you will find all of our terrific driving day packages which make great gifts for any motoring fans, and will let you push the Ariel Atom to its limits. You can order an open gift voucher or book directly onto a date.

Essential Booking Information for Ariel Atom Driving Experiences
If you are buying an open gift voucher for an Ariel Atom package, please check carefully as some Ariel Atom vouchers and special offers may have a shorter or longer validity period. The validity period to activate and use your voucher in will be clearly stated on the voucher.
If you are booking directly onto a date for an Ariel Atom Experience please note that you are making a booking request and the date and time that you choose will still be subject to availability.
We usually confirm bookings within 48 hours, but it’s important that you do not make any arrangements in conjunction with your booking request until you have received a final confirmation email. The immediate receipt you get when making a booking request is not the confirmation.
Other important things to consider when purchasing Ariel Atom Experiences is that the driver meets all of the requirements in terms of age, weight, height and driving licence. Each experience will have its own unique requirements so make sure you have read through the important information thoroughly.
If an experience is for junior drivers only, we will usually mention this in the name of the package but not in all cases. If you place a booking for an Ariel Atom Experience and on the day the driver turns out to not meet the requirements, then it is likely they will not get to drive and may have to settle for a passenger ride instead.
