Congratulations Eddie!

What a fun time it is to read how you are so fired up with your Atom and road racing after your world championship accomplishments in the ranks of Top Fuel in cars and boats.

Stay safe and healthy!

I love Hallett, half because it's a fun track and half because my great friend Toly designed and built it!

Thank you, KJRGT.

Winning the final last weekend was just as much fun as my first win in 1949, when I was 13, on a Cushman motorscooter.
The good Lord has really blessed Ercie and me with continuing good health, and we thank him every single day. Ercie and the puppies go with me in our motorhome, so it is a family affair, and we all enjoy it. :thumbsup

My miniature Doxy likes to drive the Ariel around in the pits, but she can't reach the throttle, so I have help-

I totally agree on the fun track! And I was privileged to see Tony at the track, some time ago, and hear some of his stories. Very colorful and interesting man!

I ate lunch at the Eddie Hill restaurant in Hallandale Beach a few months ago...does that place have anything to do with you?

No sir, no affiliation at all.

I love the name, though! :thumbsup

Great Gee at Hallett, both Clockwise and Counter clockwise, with Eddie FourFather Hill and his 2012 Ariel Atom 3 demonstrator/company car.

Last weekend at Hallett, I was blessed with finishing second in the Open Wheel final on Saturday, running Counter clockwise, against a field of 13 single seat race cars, and then winning first overall in the Open Wheel final on Sunday, running with most of the same cars, but running Clockwise.











Big fun, and my Atom is ready for the next race, with nothing done to it all weekend but gas added and lug nuts checked.

And, just like the last nine years, my Ariel Atom is always the only streetable, two-seater, competing in the Open Wheel class, a field of single-seat race-only cars.



Cheers,

Eddie FourFather Hill

Thank you! Feels wonderful-Habit forming- requires getting a very light carbon fiber helmet and getting neck muscles in shape. :thumbsup

Those are really cool little cars! I drove the Formula Mazda cars at Bondurant, would they be in the same class?

Actually the white car right behind me in this video is a formula Mazda. I am actually in FAA(Formula Ariel Atom) class, but as you can see here, we ALL run together, formula Continental, formula Atlantic, formula Ford, Thunder roadsters, etc.

I have won my FAA class yearly championship the last four years, but what I am proud of, is winning the overall open wheel final, as I have before, and did again last weekend, with my two-seat streetable Ariel running against pure single-seat race-only cars. :thumbsup
