Looking for a place to race? Looking for competitive spec racing? Great – this is the position we were in 4 years ago; our solution was to start the Spec:RaceAtom series presented by Honda Racing/HPD.

Up until 2011 there was no race series designed specifically for the Atom….and with TMI AutoTech being located at Virginia International Raceway, and run by a group of racers it was a natural progression to make this a reality. In December of 2010 we released the details for the series, as well as the new car designed with safety and reliability in mind. The Spec:RaceAtom (or SRA for short) car was born!

Fast forward to June of 2011 and the first green flag was thrown on the Spec:RaceAtom series; the first Atom racing series in the world. 13 cars took the green flag that day on the South Course at VIR….and we have not looked back since with more cars, and faster lap times!

Races have been taken place steadily over the past 4 years with the VIR Cup contesting 10 races annually at VIR, the Winter Series providing 6 races annually at Spring Mountain Motorsport Ranch in Las Vegas, and most recently the series has been invited to run exhibition races with the SCCA at both Barber Motorsport Park and Road Atlanta for the American Road Race of Champions.

The final race of the 2014 VIR Cup takes place next Saturday and Sunday – this will close out the 4th successful season for the Series. The racing action continues to get closer and closer…..with competition at all positions throughout the grid. Racers come from a broad background with different goals as they take to the track…..but the common theme is that they enjoy the performance and reliability of the Atom, in addition to the off track camaraderie. Currently there are close to 70 SRA cars delivered to clients across the country – if you are looking for a track car…have a look. Many SRA owners compete in the racing events as well as numerous HPDE events throughout the year.

Thank you to all the racers, sponsors, and helpers who have made Atom racing a reality. Look for the final championship results next week….and the 2015 schedule to be released shortly.
