Take the driving seat of the Audi R8 for six miles
A qualified instructor is constantly on hand
The thrill of driving this supercar stays long in the memory
Get behind the wheel of an Audi R8 supercar for a unique driving experience in Derbyshire. Push the boundaries of speed and sit back in an R8 with its 4.2 litre V8 engine, capable of reaching ear-splitting speeds of 187 mph! Donington Park is one of the best loved race tracks in British motorsport and driving such a powerful supercar around the circuit leaves drivers speechless. The Audi R8 driving experience includes two miles of familiarisation laps of Donington before taking to the driver's seat for six miles driving the German motoring masterpiece.
Selected weekdays, throughout the year. Dates fill very quickly, so we recommend booking 12 weeks in advance.
Minimum age is 18. Maximum weight is 20 stone. Minimum height is 4'10'', maximum 6'5''. A full British or international manual driving licence held for at least 12 months must be brought on the day in order to participate.
Driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice, heavy rain or high winds) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Please call the venue if in any doubt.
Expect to be at the circuit for up to two hours, including briefing and up to six miles driving the Audi R8. Please arrive 30 minutes in advance of the booked time to ensure a prompt start.
