Ariel Atom Driving Experience Hertfordshire

Drifting Experience - 10 laps behind the wheel of an Ariel Atom on Hertfordshire's premier circuit

1 Review
Price for 1 participant

An Ariel Atom driving experience is a serious treat for petrol heads, as they will get to check out the immense capability of the amazing Atom. You'll have a total of 10 laps driving in a seriously impressive motor.

The Supercharged Ariel Atom is a little rocket, reaching 60 from a standstill in just 2.8 head-spinning seconds - only marginally slower than the £1.6 million Bugatti Veyron! You will feel that power for an amazing 10 laps, plenty of time and distance to appreciate the perfect combination of a monster engine and minimalist, lightweight frame.

You'll be welcomed the driving centre in Hertfordshire by the whole team. You will attend a briefing, which will introduce you to the Ariel Atom driving experience and cover safety procedures, safe driving, and driving techniques to get the most from your experience.

After this it's time to get out on the track for the main event! First up is 4 passenger laps of the Hertfordshire circuit in a race-ready sports car (Evo X, STi or M3) driven by the instructor. This will get you nice and familiar with the track, so that you know what to expect when you are driving the Ariel Atom! You get to drive the Atom for 10 crazy laps, giving you a great opportunity to really get to know how it handles. Once your experience draws to a close, you will have a debriefing after the driving experience.

Ariel Atom Driving Experience Hertfordshire in Hemel Hempstead

Perfect weather and friendly staff guaranteed a superb afternoon. The equipment, although well used, delivered a first class performance. I would go again and would recommend it ti other interested friends. Mel Hoffman PS I think that was the oldest driver there but did not let down the older generation.

This week we are going in a completely different direction by talking to Jonny from Drift Limits, boasting the UK’s fastest drifting experience. If you’re a fan of driving days, super cars  and all things speedy, then this is definitely an experience worth reading about. 


1) Hi Jonny, please explain your journey as 'Drift Limits' so far.


Since the early days of getting into motorsport I did a few driving experiences but really felt they lacked integrity for the keen petrol head, I found they were very restricted in terms of how hard you can push the cars.  I have been racing for 3 years and then moved onto become an ARDS instructor with the ambition of developing a driving experience where you can really lean about car control and follow our motto ‘ find your limit’ at the UK’s fastest drifting experience.

The type of job it is means you’re constantly on your toes. It can be incredibly rewarding watching guests progress their skills in a short period of time. I guess I’m fortunate in being able to say I love what I do.


2) Yes that must be rewarding, what has been the biggest or most memorable event you have provided?


Ah, so many awesome days! Last week we had Harry Main and Buttsy Butler from Monster come up and play.  We also had a demo shoot for Jack Reaper stunts which was good fun despite all the screaming in my ear!


3) Sounds great! Is there any inside information you can give us?


Yes, definitely – come to one of our days and we will divulge! Ha, really just listen to the instructors to get the most out of the day. Be patient and you will progress quicker. Some people find the 3rd gear corner very daunting sideways at 60mph. You have to focus and forget about what you previously thought was possible.


After a session at Drift Limits you’ll come away a better driver and obtain new skills in the car control department. The track experiences allow guests to drive dream cars that are bonkers fast!


4) Do you have any exciting plans for the future that you'd like to tell us about?


Big plans – the track layout is currently being extended and resurfaced, and it is already the fastest drifting experience in the UK. We have a Ferrari 430 GT3 race car and Formula Renaults joining the fleet soon, so we’ll have quite a few more experiences to offer looking forward.


Thank you for talking to us, Jonny, definitely something I would love to try! Stay tuned for more information drifting experiences.
