Formula Atlantic cars are not for the faint of heart or beginners. They are sophisticated, 300 hp race cars capable of speeds in excess of 175 mph. If you can drive an Atlantic car well, you can drive an Indycar. They are also a natural progression from F2000 and possibly F1600. These cars have highly developed aerodynamic packages and are very sensitive to setup changes and driving techniques, making them an ideal teaching platform for both driver and crew seeking to go to the highest levels of motor racing.
