    New Member - Joined to learn and find my first Atom

    Hi, my name is Tony, and I'm a autoholic. This is a 12 step program to get well, right? Actually, autoholic might be a bit extreme. My wife refers to me as a petrosexual. All things automotive are my vocation, my avocation, and my true passion. I'm a 33 year automotive industry veteran (powertrain, combustion and fuel systems) and certified track junkie. I'm thinking of adding an Ariel Atom to my collection of track and street toys. I'm interested in a dedicated track car; not for the street. I have other toys for street use. I started racing go-karts in the 1970's, and did some professional sports car racing in the 1980's (IMSA GTU.) Now it's all just grassroots fun. If you are interested, you can check out some of my Phoenix area ProAutoSports, NASA AZ, and SCCA Solo activities here:

    I figure I'll lurk for a while, read and learn, and then see what sort of Atom configuration makes sense for the track.

    Thanks!

    Owning an Atom means never getting stuck in track traffic. After a while you learn to grid up front..and most people are happy to give you the front of the line, especially as the day wears on...
    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)
