Ariel atom track day experience

Ariel is having an Ariel Atom Experience event at select tracks around
the country, you'll get pro instruction and plenty (2 hours minimum)
time behind the wheel on track. Price ain't cheap at $1850 for the day,


Seven tracks on the tour around the country including Buttonwillow,
Thunderhill, Willow Springs, and some little track in Cresson, TX.

That's a cool program... but the price?

I bet I could offer a local Ariel owner $500 and get track time (with him as passenger) at our local course. Most Ariel owners go out to the track so I bet they would be more willing than others. Better yet, I could offer to swap our cars for a few sessions at the track. I think it would be fun.

Yep it's expensive. the guy who sent me the link, said he rents out a f430 for the day which is a similar price.

Looks interesting Easty! Did you ever drive the 1.3 mile course at Cresson?

I rather do that, there's an ariel atom that tracks all the time here and he'll let someone drive it for free, if he trust you. He seems to be a nice guy.

981 Boxster S
06' SLK 350, Iridium/Ash all pkgs. 6-spd, 19" DCR. (Gone but not forgotten)

What an easy way to own an F430...just hold "track days" and charge 100 people almost 2K to drive it.
