Spec Racing classes are touted as one of the best ways to find out who the best driver really is – with identical machinery, talent should be the only thing separating the heroes from the zeros, and most spec classes feature slower cars like Miatas, Porsche 944s and BMW E30s to let driving skill take the forefront.

A new series being whipped up at the famed VIR race course will take spec racing to a whole new level by creating a single make series for the infamous Ariel Atom sports car. With 10 racers taking place over 5 weeks, different configurations of VIR will be used to keep things fresh. Delivers of the Spec cars will begin in April, 2011.
