Wow.
I've done a number of track days in various cars (Alfa Gtv, 208gti, i30N, R8 and a Corsa VXR but none prepared me for the Atom.

It gripped at crazy speeds and tired to tear the helmet from my head on the straights.

All other cars are now slow. Its the first car that still looks exciting in the POV video.

Those of you that are owners must have permanent grins. Jealous for now.

Not sure what version it was, civic supercharged engine, a toggle switch and button to start, h gear box and just a little old school digital readout. Lovely.

Did the ‘atom battle’ at the top gear track, where two pro drivers have a track battle with u in the passenger seat. Whilst people were driving other super cars.

It was utterly intense and stunning. The cars danced around like crazy. Absolute whole other level of performance.

Also drove them and they were far more exciting than the Porsche, Ferrari 458 and Lamborghini Gallardo that we also drive tha day.

Wow, that sounds like an awesome experience.

I've been in similar at a Vauxhall VXR day with 2 Corsas being expertly driven in a fun way. Can only imagine how it would feel in Atoms.

Probably made the other cars send like stationary objects wink
