About us

What is Ariel Club?

Ariel Club is the official club for Ariel vehicle owners and enthusiasts and is based in the UK but active globally. It is an evolution of the original Ariel Atom Owners Club which voted for an all-inclusive club in 2016. If you own an Ariel Atom, Nomad or Ace, or dream of owning one, you’re one of us. You’ll find plenty here to get excited about as the enhanced club and website grows.

We offer events, opinions, reviews, technical guides, club and Ariel news – and a shop for gear that’s exclusive to Ariel Club. You can only buy Ariel Club stuff here.  If you want to know anything about your Ariel vehicle, from torqueing your nuts to buffing your exhaust, our forum is open 24×7 for a chat or technical advice – and there’s even more content available for paid up members.

Ariel Club is run by unpaid volunteers and all club fees and shop profits go straight into making the club a better place – and we encourage all club members to submit stories, pictures, videos or news for publication on here. Get in touch or go straight to joining. You know you want to.

Who are your club organisers?

Profile picture of Nock

Nick Mason, AKA, Sir Nick, has been an active figure in the Atom community for more years than he can remember. At least more than 3 at any rate. The figure 18 features heavily in his life, as does something to do with tees, greens and bogies. Because of his grip on numbers and the lack of grip he enjoys in his 3.5R, Nick is the club director in charge of treasury.

Anyone want to clean my sidepods out?

Ian Granville (Ian G) was one of those kids who was always taking things to pieces to see how they worked. Now he’s sort of all grown up, his engineering skills have seen him upgrade his Atom in the pursuit of speed and glory. When he’s not chasing power figures on the dyno, he is chasing membership numbers as our club director in charge of memberships.

Where’s my rear light? In the footwell of course, why, where’s yours?

Steve Wind-Mozley (winmoz) has ruined many perfectly good vehicles in the past by modding them to try and get them to go faster round tracks. These days he is happy to let the folks at Ariel Motor Company do the spanner-wielding so he can focus on his ‘not-a-racing-driver’s excuses’. For some reason he is the director in charge of technology.
