The Audi R8 is much sought-after and carries a hefty price tag, but the general consensus amongst celebrities and the rich is it’s definitely worth it! Get a chance to drive this sleek, futuristic luxury car for a full six miles around the track at Mallory Park and it’s bound to be unforgettable. Begin with a briefing and get familiar with the track and the challenges it presents. Then take the wheel of the R8 for six miles with an instructor in the passenger seat to offer encouragement. With a top speed of 187 MPH, its 4.2 litre V8 engine is just crying out to be exercised, and the experience will end with a special certificate to take home.


At least one weekday date each month. There is a £10 upgrade for this venue on booking. Please allow several weeks advance booking notice for this popular experience.


Driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. high winds, ice or heavy rain) which would make driving at speed dangerous. The venue makes contact if the experience is cancelled for any reason.

Can I take people to watch?
