Audi R8 Driving Thrill
Your chance to get behind the wheel of an Audi R8 supercar - a true German motoring masterpiece at a choice of famous circuits. 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 on a truly impressive track.
