Take the driving seat of the Audi R8 for four laps
Choose from a variety of incredible famous circuits
Includes Oulton Park, Donington, Brands Hatch and Three Sisters
Get behind the wheel of the Audi R8 supercar - a true German masterpiece at a choice of famous circuits in Derbyshire, Lancashire, Cheshire and Kent. Designers have pushed the boundaries of racing technology and futuristic construction to deliver a car which is as exciting to drive as it is stunning to look at, with a 4.2 litre V8 engine capable of reaching 187 mph. Begin with a briefing from a qualified instructor who talkS through racing lines, techniques and best handling and at some venues be driven around the circuit in a hot hatch for two or three demo laps before putting the theory into practise. Driving time can vary but is normally up to six miles. Be prepared for an absolutely thrilling drive in a piece of sophisticated engineering.
Availability varies between each venue, check each one for details. We recommend allowing several weeks advance booking notice for this particularly popular experience.
