Bad road surface of course...

Vid clip here

Surprised I didn't blend it in to the scenery - I really really need to sort the set-up on the car as it's so bloody tail happy.

Took one of these for a test drive a couple of years ago and loved it, the guy who builds them then took the wife for a ride (fanar fanar!!) and she has never been the same since. She reckons he waited till he could see a car coming the other way and then he would pull out and overtake!!

Oh well, at least the seats would have been easy to hose down afterwards.

The flailing arms conveyed a certain schincter-clenching quality, don't you think?

Yeah, I'm certainly glad there wasn't anything coming and the situation did call for a certain amount of 'random flapping at the wheel'.

Just glad I caught it....this week I shall mainly be driving more carefully.

Come on Ross, a 360 would have looked much better on the video!

Steve and I are taking ours to Folembray next weekend! I'll take video and stills and post them if they're any good!

Still fancy doing an Atom Owners track day - anyone else up for it? Which track?

I'm up for an Atom get together (if only to find out how many of use there are!).

I can vouch for Oulton Park if you can be arsed to make the journey (bare in mind that I have to drive mine everywhere!). I really felt the lack of power at Donnington last time I was there although Oulton felt great in the Atom.

Would be good if we could get Simon/Tom to bring a MarkII along for us to test as well.
