If you are reading this you likely already agree with me that cars are more than just a form of transportation….I also believe that cars are also more than an outlet for an adrenaline rush during performance driving events. Driving at the limit is a great joy of mine….and I imagine yours too…..but I took a step back this past week during a track event and saw that cars, and performance driving, bring people together.

A track day brings drivers from all walks of life together…..and the paddock becomes a place to relax and talk about cars, the proper line, and what tire pressure works best. This past week I met people in the paddock that I had not seen in 7 years and picked right back up where we left off…..which was likely talking about minimum apex speeds – or something exciting like that.

This particular track day, at Virginia International Raceway, saw numerous Atoms lapping which was great to see…but it was also great to see how many new drivers were out for the first time on the track – maybe they will be future Atom owners J.

If you are looking for your next hobby and have not taken to the track yet I strongly suggest you do so – you won’t regret it. There are track days happening across the country on a weekly basis – Just get out and drive! If you want to discuss an Atom to do so with….I am happy to chat.

In the meantime – we are headed to Road Atlanta this weekend for an exhibition race with the Spec:Race Atom series. Keep an eye on the results page, as well as our facebook page for updates from the track.
