Ever wanted to test you oversteer holding abilities? Ever wondered why drifting is such a big deal in Japan and Europe? Find out with The Real Gran Turismo Drift Academy at Brands Hatch!
With a host of performance Japanese cars, get the real drifting experience exactly how it was in Japan when it started. Drift spec differentials mean our fleet of turbocharged, japanese (and a few Euro cars in there for good measure) can flick oversteer and then hold a drift around our purpose built facility at the home of UK motorsport, Brands Hatch.
Why not treat yourself? Full day and taster courses available! And if you enjoy the taster Drift Academy, you get the cost of that ticket off your full day purchase! You cannot say fairer than that!

With over 150 tickets sold via Groupon, we will have much feedback from new customers about how the 500kg, 250bhp Ariel atom 3 handles and works as a taster track day toy, compared with our other toys, such as the V8 powered M3, Porsche 924 track experience and Toyotal Starlet 'Chuck it in and laugh aloud' type front wheel drive track experience.
We wish to bring these together for advanced track day go-ers, who see the Atom as a truly exciting car to experience, but who will also appreciate our approach to improving driver skills throughout the day, which can often be done more effectively in cars that do not offer such an out-and-out assault on the senses, such as the Atom.
Indeed, the M3 offers truly exciteing acceleration, grip and very communicative controls in a balanced rear wheel drive chassis, whilst the Starlet offers a stripped-back, high power, low grip FWD track day experience. Each of these cars have an important part to play in your understanding of car control.
No matter how experienced, anyone short of race driver status should appreciate there is always more to learn, and more speed to gain on track. The better you understand the dynamics of a car, and the relvance of chassis layout in how the car behaves, the more you will imrove as a driver.
Of course, as we remember from school, learning may not always be fun - which is why we make sure the pressure is off, you go as fast as you feel comfortable doing, It is our job when you are on our Ariel Atom Driving Experiences, or any of our track day experiences, that you finish the day feeling more comfortable at higher speeds than you did when you started the day.

This is not to say that we didn't already know a lot about it – I have been attending track days since the age of thirteen with my father, and partaking in track events as soon as I got my license well over ten years ago now.
What really strikes us here at The Real Gran Turismo, is that there are others who have had the idea of buying an Ariel Atom in order for you to experience it on a track day. Only problem is, you try getting in touch with these guys, and requesting an Ariel Atom track day experience at Silverstone, doing a proper experience, and you will be met with all kinds of chuckles and red tape, not to mention cost, getting in the way of your fun day out.
We are trying to offer Ariel Atom track day rental that is not only affordable, but also easy to organise. Pick up the phone, tell us the dates you are thinking, and we will let you know what circuits we can accommodate you on, and what the price will be. And of course, if you don't want to share the car with like minded people also looking for an Ariel Atom track day experience, then you can rent the car from us, complete with insurance, professional instructor, and track day ticket, plus all the fuel you can use, for a fixed price. You can take it or leave it, but at least you know it is there.
Before we got into the market offering petrolheads everyone the opportunity to participate in a track day in our Ariel Atom 3, we often attended as customers ourselves, before realising that the track days on offer were not, in fact, proper track days. They are, what we refer to, as our handling days.
If you are simply looking to experience the thrills, the smells, and the seat of the pants acceleration of a car like the Ariel Atom, on track, then this will do the job much more quickly, and cheaply, than a full track day. Motorsport is not cheap, simply consider the cost of track day entry, fuel and insurance you are already looking at £100's easily.
Therefore, for those that want both a taste of the fabulous Ariel Atom for bragging rights, or for those of you looking to go beyond Gran Turismo on Playstation and learn the proper theories of circuit driving in real life, we can offer both. Entry level experiences, and advanced experiences.
Either way, there is no denying the fun to be had during either of the above Ariel Atom track day hire experiences.

If you have been looking for an exhilarating driving experience, you have probably found yourself trawling through endless lists of random websites, looking for a driving experience slightly different to the norm, without really having any idea of what you will be getting, aside from perhaps 5 minutes behind the wheel of some sort of ‘fast car’ on some sort of race track.
For us, this isn’t really good enough. We have all seen the big, discount sites, that offer 100 tickets to an experience for practically nothing – but is this really a gift worth giving? Sharing time in the car with all those other people? Waiting around in the cold for your next 5 minutes behind the wheel? We are not so sure, and want to offer our customers something different.
For example, we are currently offering proper Ariel Atom experiences. Driving an Ariel Atom has long been one of the foremost wishes on every petrolheads’ wish list since the irreplaceable Jeremy Clarkson decided to drive one with a helmet on, distorted his face and went on to discuss how nothing he has ever driven accelerates or changes direction with such fluidity.
Ariel Atom experiences should not be taken for granted, and you cannot master the art of driving an Ariel Atom with less than a full day at the circuit, with ticket to ride. Our Ariel Atom experiences come in various forms, but for the serious enthusiast, who understands that in this world, and in motorsport, you most certainly do get what you pay for.
With our advanced Ariel Atom drive experience, you will not be sharing the car with up to 15 other people, but you will for a large percentage of a group of only 4 people, and with a race instructor sat beside you at all times, you will feel the exhilarating rush of speed and performance that only our Ariel atom on track experience can offer. An Ariel Atom hire for the day, at a top MSV circuit, with race instructor, fuel, track entry and helmet hire all included for your £500, you will be forgiven that Christmas has come early.
Of course, for those that simply want to see, sit and feel the Ariel Atom, we offer taster experiences at the home of UK motorsport, Brands Hatch, which offers you the opportunity, at a smaller outlay, to experience the pinsharp handling of the Ariel Atom on our purpose built slalom course. Ariel Atom track experiences don’t come much better value than this, at only £169.
Perhaps the only better value way of getting an Ariel Atom 3 on track is by playing Gran Turismo on Playstation. But then, this simply won’t do for those looking for The Real Gran Turismo.
