Enjoy a high-speed driving experience like never before with this unique and incredible Ariel Atom driving thrill and High Speed Passenger Ride for One.
The Ariel Atom not only looks like a rocket, but drives like one too! With no body panels it looks completely different from the norm, which is all in aid of saving weight. With an acceleration from 0-60 mph in an astonishing 2.89 seconds, it beats most Ferraris off the mark! It’s no wonder car guru Jeremy Clarkson once described this model as "off the scale" and “one of the most beautiful cars in the world”, just because of its wonderful auto-engineering and elegance.
This Ariel Atom driving gift experience is bound to put a smile on any car enthusiast’s face!
Your day will begin with an introduction and safety briefing on circuit driving techniques. Then it’s time to take to the wheel of this awesome machine. You will get to drive for four to six hair-raising miles at a track of your choice. To top it all off, you’ll receive a high speed passenger ride in a performance vehicle such as a BMW M3, Vauxhall VXR8, Ford Focus RS, or a BMW sports saloon with a professional racing driver for one unforgettable lap.
The person driving the car will be required to sign a disclaimer accepting liability in the event of damage to the vehicle. The driver will be given an option to purchase damage waiver cover when booking to minimise their financial exposure should there be an accident. Drivers are under no obligation to purchase this optional waiver. Full details are available at the time of booking.
This experience is available on selected weekdays, throughout the year.
You will be at the venue for approximately 1-3 hours with 6 miles driving and a passenger ride.
This experience is for one person, there will be other people there on the day.
You're welcome to bring friends and family to watch you take to the track! Children must be supervised at all times.

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!
Trust your instructor and hold your nerve.
