    My name is Gil Kennedy From Florida, I want to by a atom for track purpose ( HPDE ) but want to be able to drive it there.

    I never tried one , not sure it will meat my expectation.
    I'am actually driving a GTR and a C5 Z06 , I'am used to a lot of HP and traction with my GTR.( I run in the advance group and like to be ahead )
    I would like to hear comments from a Atom owner who as drive a GTR before or something similar.

    Hi, Gil, and welcome to the forum. This is a great place to learn about these incredible Atoms.

    Here is what my 2012 Ariel Atom 3 demonstrator/company car looks like at Hallett Motor Raceway, near Tulsa.

    Since my Atom normally runs about ten seconds a lap quicker than the quickest of the other streetable cars there, it makes more sense, and is more fun for me, to run with the open wheel racecars.

    I have a 2009 GTR with mods putting out somewhere between 600-700hp. Ariel kicks me in the ass just as hard but without all the traction control and stuff of the GTR I'm a bit more hesitant to really romp on it. The lack of a windshield also makes me temper any sort of high speed spirited driving. Before the GTR I had a 99 Viper ACR. All that said I don't track my cars so I can't help you with track advice/experience. Hoping to track the Ariel and improve my driving...
