BIG THANKS to Codemasters for sponsoring today’s episode. To stay up to speed on all DIRT 5 announcements and to PRE-ORDER DIRT 5 (featuring Donut!) click this link:
Ariel Motor Company is famous for their Ariel Atom, Ariel Nomad and Ariel Ace, but did you know the Ariel of today actually started 150 years ago? From penny-farthing bikes to iconic motorcycles like the Ariel Red Hunter, Ariel Square Four and Ariel Cyclone, this small British manufacturer set the stage for success but died under poor leadership. Now back from the dead, the Ariel of today makes ultra-low production, ultra-lightweight speed monsters. So hold on to your face and join host James Pumphrey as he gets you Up To Speed on the exciting history of Ariel Motor Company!

It's pronounced Crook urn by the locals. The concierge probably sounds like one of the Wurzels and they all go out and drink rough cider on a Friday. Good news is the whole area is a hot bed for engineers because the worlds best helicopters (with composite blades) are built just down the road in Yeovil.

You completely missed the US market Atom! The Atom was manufactured just down the road from where I live in Oregon for the US market, by the company Brammo, for a short time. Then Brammo started making electric motorcycles and batteries then sold to Cummins. I took a tour of their production, it was pretty kewl seeing the building of the Atoms though, in left hand drive!

4:10 Wikipedia says BMW R12 and R17 were the first bikes to have telescopic forks. How did Ariel invent them in 1947 if they existed in 1935? 10:45 that is really amazing. 12:25 nice joke hahaha
