What Can I Expect

An Audi R8 drive with lots of choice! You decide which circuit, how many miles and what day of the week for your Audi driving experience. We've got three-mile blasts and six-mile thrills available at a range of circuits around the UK.

You'll be at the track for around two hours, giving you and your friends and family plenty of time to soak up the motoring atmosphere, as well as cheering you on. If you like your cars, you'll love these track days, as there are always loads of different cars there, including, of course, this rather flash R8 you'll be getting your hands on.

Before hitting the track, your Audi R8 driving experience starts with a classroom briefing. This is where you'll learn all about racing lines, cornering and braking techniques in this V8 engined powerhouse of a car.

Then it's over to you. Your moment of driving glory. The Audi R8 is a real superstar of a car and just climbing into the driver's seat gets the old adrenaline going. The stainless steel dashboard trim, the sportingly low seats, the back window you really can't see a thing out of. All totally impractical on the public roads, but who cares!

And for an extra thrill, this experience is also available with a 'hotlap' add-on. Once you've driven the R8, you get to go around the track again, but this time as a passenger in a performance car. One of the venue's professional instructors will be driving, so you can see how to push it to the limit on the tarmac.

Our top tip for bargain hunters: go for the Friday Audi R8 drive for the best value for money version of these Audi track sessions.

Great day with lovely cars and staff were very friendly. Laps were shorter than I would have liked, but still very enjoyable.
