My TraqMate data recorder gave me the following info from my best lap in the last session at Eagles Canyon last Saturday.

Lap time 1:58.2

Maximum gee:
Braking-1.45
Accelerating 1.08
Right gee (turning left) 2.20
Left gee (turning right) 1.98

This on my company demonstrator, a 2011 Ariel Atom 3. I put new Hoosier A6 tires on the stock wheels, but NO other changes or adjustments. The alignment, ride height, suspension settings, engine, etc. all just as it came.

That is very close to my best times with my 2006 Atom II with the huge Formula Atlantic slicks on it! I am VERY HAPPY with this new Atom 3!!

A friend of mine is going to have his GT40 replica there, and I have driven it there before, and it hauls!
I'm going to be driving and demonstrating my new 2011 Ariel Atom 3, too, and we really enjoy the track and the folks there.

Forecast is mid 70's and mostly sunny. Y'all come if you can!



Track is 12 miles north of Decatur on hwy 51.
