Have a safety briefing from an experienced instructor
Then get behind the wheel of the Ariel Atom
The Ariel Atom is made with lightweight material, no roof or doors and hardly any body panels with the aim to make it as quick as possible - and with the ability to go from 0 - 60 mph in 2.7 seconds, this vehicle does not disappoint. Affectionately called the 'pocket rocket' due to its swift nature, this is a great car for those with a need for speed. Upon reaching Oulton Park, receive a safety briefing from a qualified instructor and some driving tuition on how best to handle this little beauty. The take centre stage and whizz around Oulton Park for six hair-raising miles of the 1.6 mile long track.
Available approximately four selected weekdays from late March to October. Dates fill very quickly, so we recommend booking 12 weeks in advance.
Minimum age is 18. Maximum weight is 18 stone. Minimum height is 5'3'', maximum 6'4''. Must have held a full British or international manual driving licence for at least 12 months and bring it on the day in order to participate.
Driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice, heavy rain or high winds) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Please call the venue if in any doubt.
