One of the world’s most coveted cars, the Audi R8 is well worth its price tag. Its mighty 4.2 litre V8 engine boasts a phenomenal top speed of 187mph, and its sleek, futuristic bodywork is both aerodynamic and stunning to look at. Start with a detailed briefing from an experienced instructor. This will help drivers get familiarised with the track so no time is wasted wondering where the next corner is! Then it’s into the Audi R8 for a full six miles of track driving, with the instructor in the passenger seat to offer tips and encouragement throughout.


At least one weekday or weekend date each month. 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.
