I and at least one of my customers are planning to run our Ariel Atoms at Eagles Canyon Raceway, 13 miles northeast of Decatur, Texas, on hwy. 51, Saturday April 6.

The last I heard, there was no admission charge, unless you will be running your car on track.

I plan to run my Atom in the track sessions, but when I am not on track, or during the lunch break, I will be happy to show this amazing car and answer questions, and I will have my price and options list with me, and can even take your order, if you'd like.




Thanks for looking.



Eddie

It feels really great. I'm kinda used to it now, been doing this for seven years now, but the first couple years my neck muscles were sore after a three-day road race event.

And this is on DOT-marked tires with the two circumferential grooves required to be street legal.

And the coolest thing is that all I did to the car the whole day, was to add five gallons of pump 93 octane and check tire pressure (no adjusting needed) and check lug nuts, and none moved. The car is staying in the trailer until the next event because it does not need anything done to it.

Fun, fast, and no work-- what a deal!

Ariel Atom demonstration day again tomorrow, April 21, at Eagles Canyon Raceway 13 miles northeast of Decatur Texas, on highway 51.

It is hard to believe how much quicker/faster than a normal car, these Atoms are, until you see it firsthand.

Wife Ercie and I will be there with our red, white, and blue motorhome/mobile sales office, with our silver enclosed Atom trailer, and between track sessions we love to show and tell about the Atoms.

Y'all come see us, if you can--

Eddie
