On the first link try clicking the circuits and then car trackdays, all you get is "no matching events found" all the time.

On the second link, Guadix is 821km from Barcelona.

In truth some trackdays are organized in Montmelo, but trackdays in general are nowhere near as extended in the UK.

Arkansas, Conway, not so bad, really.
I caught the news byte on this scrolling across the bottom of the screen on that G4 show, Attack of the Show, which disappoints me every episode as that Cherokee-looking chick's blouse refuses to accidentally fly off.

500hp in an Atom is several tokes over the line; sweet Jesus. Nobody NEEDS that much power in a motorized kayak, but sportscars never were, or should be, about what people NEED.

It's great.

what???

the X-bow it's Darth Vaeder's car! it's ugly, it could be fast, aggressive and orange but not a good looking car! i never liked it, while i am totally caught with ariel's pure minimalism at the service of lightweighting (is it english at least?! my apologies...)

X-bow is made by Dallara....the only thing I don't like is that it uses 2.0T instead of something lighter....

Ariel Atom looks the part, but looking at the thing upclose it is not that nicely designed, but it proves a point of making something light and gives it significant power and you can end up with a very potent car....

I've got to go with the Caterham, too. It looks so much better, and I think I could live with the lack of downforce from the two huge wings. Still an awesome car, though. We need these over here.

They are here. Not the 500 maybe...but Ariel has a distributor in the USA.

Yeah, I've seen the less powerful ones, and they were my favorite track day car. But the new Caterham Seven RS, either supercharged or not (I prefer naturally aspirated, but that power to weight is hard to argue with,) are my new favorites. And I'd have no problem taking someone on a date in one. As a matter of fact, with my looks, driving that would definitely help.

Would it?

We're talking about a car that's basically a bunch of scaffolding with a "5-fast, 5-furious" engine bolted to it.

I 'Quail were a woman. I'd run for my life at the sight of it.
