Atomic Race Management in partnership with Ariel Motor Company have announced plans for the Atom Cup, a new racing series to be based in the UK that will feature (like the name suggests) the Ariel Atom in full race speciﬁcation.
The cars will feature an Atom 'Cup Spec' version, and will be powered by a 2.0-litre Honda Type R iVTEC engine. It will also feature a modiﬁed chassis, full roll over protection, race instrumentation and Ohlins suspension. Engines, ECU and dampers will be sealed with the cars running on tyres supplied by Yokohama.
A “Season” will last for 8 race weekends at some of the best circuits in the UK ranging from Brands Hatch to even Silverstone. The 2013 Atom Cup will be the ﬁrst where the well-received Ariel Atoms will race wheel to wheel in an organised single make UK Race Series.
The Atoms are designed and built by Ariel Motor Company in Somerset, UK projecting minimalist design and lightweight performance with a power to weight ratio that could probably top the TGV Train. Ok maybe not.
