What Can I Expect
For the mini madcap motorsport lovers in your family, this junior Audi R8 driving experience is a great way to give them quality time behind the wheel before they even think about getting a provisional. Young wannabe racers can get a first-hand feel for speed and power on a specially-designed circuit and take their first steps towards driving success in this top German sports car.
Perfect for motoring youngsters of all ages, the only requirement for junior drivers on this Audi R8 experience is a minimum height of 5ft. No previous experience is necessary as this one-to-one tuition course is designed to take them from complete basics to completing a full circuit in this Germanic four-wheel drive mechanical masterpiece.
There are four circuits for these avid automobile enthusiasts to conquer. Each has an individually designed track layout to give your junior road goers a driving experience they’ll never forget, as their Audi R8 tears around the course. They’ll be accompanied at all times by a fully qualified and experienced driving instructor, but they’ll be the one behind the wheel, in charge of handling and manoeuvring like a real driver.
The Audi R8 is one of the most popular sports cars amongst junior drivers and the experience of getting behind the wheel is unlike any other. Launched in 2007 with the designation ‘Quattro’ to indicate four or all-wheel drive technology being used, this magical motor can go from 0-62mph in just 4.4 seconds. Of course, your youngster won’t be going anywhere near that fast, but the power and thrill of driving this elegant machine is inescapable no matter what speed you achieve.
All R8 driving experiences include a compulsory helmet for additional safety whilst in the car and junior drivers will enjoy around 10 minutes of track time learning to master the controls. At the end of the session, they’ll be presented with a Certificate of Supercar Driving Experience to mark this momentous occasion, and can return home proud in the knowledge that they took on an iconic sports car and won.
So get your little driving devils down to the circuits at Elvington, Blyton Park or Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground for a day of racing they’ll treasure forever. A junior Audi R8 driving experience is a gift like no other and for the future pro drivers out there, it will be a marvellous introduction to the fast-paced world of motorsport that they will absolutely love.
