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.
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.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to book your experience. You can either buy one of our Ariel Atom driving days by purchasing an open gift voucher or booking directly onto a date from our regularly updated Events Calendar.
If you cannot see any dates on the voucher page for your chosen experience, then you can contact our Customer Service team, who will be able to give you the most up to date availability.
We always welcome receiving our packages as Group or Corporate bookings too - more details on how you can contact us to arrange this can be found on our dedicated Corporate Experience Days page.
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.
Conditions and Terms of Sale
Terms and conditions may be found at: www.trackdays.co.uk/terms-and-conditions/.
TrackDays.co.uk, as well as any other relevant information, are up to date at the time of publishing. During the offseason, you may notice changes in the content, presentation, or pricing of the product (Oct - Feb). Because of the large number of reservations, we will not be able to notify our customers of any changes quickly. For the most up-to-date information, please go to our website or contact one of our customer care specialists. Thank you.
Images from our website
A wide range of companies and places work with TrackDays to exhibit their goods, hold events, and host track days. We work directly with the greatest experience providers in the United Kingdom, and they may need to change the venue or automobile lineup at any moment, so the specs provided on the website may vary from those indicated. They will make every effort to offer an experience that is as close to what has been described as is reasonably possible.
Locations and Vehicles
Trackdays.co.uk offers a wide range of facilities, autos, and locations for customers to choose from. We will replace any service that is temporarily unavailable due to a failure, weather, or construction activities with a comparable service. It's crucial to note that it may be essential to modify the place, the day, the vehicle, and the timetable from time to time. A damage waiver is available for around £20-£25 per driver and may be purchased on the day. These waivers are normally fully optional and will be made available on the day of the event if one wishes.
The projected length is stated for each event and session. If a planned event has to be postponed, you will be told as soon as it becomes practicable. After your itinerary has been validated, you will not be able to cancel your ticket.
The majority of driving experiences have guidelines in place to protect the health and safety of their staff and drivers. You must be between 4'11" and 6'6" in height and weigh less than 18 stone to be eligible. If you want to ride as a passenger, you must be at least 16 years old. Any driver taking part in a driving activity or a vehicle track day must have their driver's licence on them at all times. To participate in any bike track day, you must have a motorbike licence that is entirely unrestricted. A valid driving licence is required in order to take part in the competition. When participating in a car track day, all of the vehicles are subjected to a static and/or drive-by noise test. We show the static noise limitations on our schedules whenever it is practical to do so. Failure to pass the drive-by or static noise testing on the day of the test will result in the vehicle being unable to participate in the event and receiving no refund. Helmets are required on track days open to the public. To participate in a race, you must wear two-piece zip-together leather protection or total leather protection. You will be advised of any extra regulations and limitations by the venue. If you are asked to leave the track as a result of your misbehaviour, you will not be entitled to any reimbursement.
It is possible that the weather will have an influence on your event. Unfortunately, postponing an event before it takes place is not always possible. When weather conditions are extreme, track days and driving trips are often postponed. If it's raining or otherwise inclement weather, you have a contractual obligation to the event location or event provider to attend. A refund will only be provided if it is technically practicable.
We keep our event calendar as up to date as feasible on our website. If you are unable to locate the event or date you are looking for, please contact us using the contact form. We will do all in our power to assist you. During busy seasons such as weekends and summer months, it is recommended that you reserve your desired event, location, and date as soon as possible. If you do not adhere to the terms and conditions given out by the event organiser, your reservation will be cancelled automatically. After a reservation has been made, it is not possible to modify it.
You should get a booking confirmation that includes the date and time of your event (this does not include the automatic purchase email you receive that confirms what you have just ordered). It is expected that you will get a final confirmation within 48 hours of making your
transaction. A suitable alternative will be provided on the day in the event that any vehicles or equipment are unable to be used due to mechanical failure.
Our gift packages are sent by Royal Mail 48 ®, which takes 3 to 5 working days, or by DPD, which delivers the next working day. For the most up-to-date information on Christmas delivery dates, see the website's news section at the bottom of the page.
Unless otherwise noted, all Trackdays.co.uk pricing is inclusive of VAT and is current at the time of publishing, unless otherwise specified. We have the right to change the prices of any of our products at any moment. If we are unable to fulfil a booking as a result of a pricing error on our website, we have the right to decline it. If you buy an experience day or your own vehicle track day over the phone with a member of our staff, we will assume that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions before making your purchase.
Calls to the Trackdays.co.uk booking line are recorded for the purposes of staff training; however, if sensitive information is provided over the phone, call recording is switched off to protect the privacy of those involved. All of our providers are well-known in the business and have been carefully chosen; nevertheless, the inclusion of an experience range does not mean that we guarantee the safety standards or outstanding performance of any of our suppliers.
All participants at Trackdays.co.uk events will be covered by the Public Liability Insurance provided by our providers. Other types of insurance, such as 'Own Vehicle and Personal Accident Cover,' may be recommended.
In order to maintain the integrity of the track, we do not allow open wheel vehicles on our public track days.
In the event that these terms and conditions are modified, Trackdays.co.uk is not required to provide customers with prior notification.
