Your Audi R8 Driving Experience Day
The Audi R8 is the last word in 21st century Supercars. Boasting astounding performance and sleek, bespoke Italian styling, it also has the instantly recognisable thrumming sound of a V8.
It also showcases the precise, first class German engineering you’d expect, with its high-revving V8 engine, ASF construction and Quattro 4-wheel-drive, and it's classy, forward thinking appearance courtesy of Audi's team of leading designers.
Counting Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson amongst its fans, the Audi R8 is capable of scorchingly fast speeds of up to 187 mph, and promises you a ride you won’t forget in a hurry.
We also have the new Audi R8 V8 available to drive. A supercar to reckon with the best of them, going from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds and offering a top speed of 190 mph. A winning combination of style, flair and high quality manufacturing, it is the ultimate driving experience for the modern car enthusiast.
When you attend your Audi Driving Experience, you will be given a demonstration passenger tour of the track, a short in-car briefing from your instructor, and then a sensational drive around your chosen track. With the guidance of your fully trained instructor, you’ll soon find out that it lives up to its reputation and then some as fun, fast demons of agility and power.
Our Audi driving experiences are a great gift idea, available at a range of great race track and circuit track locations nationwide, including Brands Hatch, Mallory Park and Castle Combe to name but a few, at a range of times and dates across the year to suit you. All you need to do is simply book your gift voucher or alternatively, select a date and location of your choice from our map and events calendar.
Junior Audi Driving Experience Days
It’s not just adults that get to experience the speed, comfort and precision of our Audi R8 and Audi R8 V10 driving experiences. For the little enthusiast aged 10-17, we have a range of Audi R8 junior driving experience days available across the UK, which are the perfect birthday or Christmas gift idea that they’ll remember for years to come.
Booking an Audi R8 Driving Experience
There are two easy ways for you to purchase an Audi R8 Driving Experience on Driving Experience. You can either purchase one of our driving experience days as a 10-month gift voucher or book directly onto a date of your choice.
If you cannot see any dates on the voucher page, then simply e-mail or call us and our customer service team can give you the most up to date availability. If you wish to make a bespoke package or are interested in making one of our driving experiences into a group event or corporate event, please contact us by going to our corporate days page and filling in our enquiry form.
Essential booking information for Audi R8 Driving Experiences
If you buy an open gift voucher for an Audi R8 package, the standard validity period to use the voucher is 10 months. However, please make sure you check this first, as some Audi R8 vouchers and special offers may have a shorter or longer validity.
If you are booking directly onto a date for a driving experience, please note that you are making a booking request, and the date and time that you choose will still be subject to availability.
We usually confirm bookings within 48 hours, but we ask that you do not make any arrangements in conjunction with your booking request until you have received your final confirmation email. The receipt we send you after making a booking request is not your confirmation.
Other important things to consider when purchasing driving experiences for the Audi R8 is that the driver meets all requirements in terms of age, weight, height and driving licence. These requirements are unique to each driving experience, so please ensure you have read the important information thoroughly.
If an experience is for junior drivers only, we will usually mention this in the name of the package, but not in all cases. If you place a booking for a driving experience, and the driver doesn’t meet the requirements on the day, then it is unlikely they will be able to drive the vehicle, in which case they will be offered a passenger ride.
In Profile: The Audi R8 V10 Plus
When it comes to the ultimate Audi driving experience, it has to be the Audi R8 V10 Plus. First produced in 2015 as part of the Type 4S second generation of Audi R8s, it was launched at the Geneva Motor Show that same year.
This R8 is based on the Modular Sports System platform, state-of-the-art technology that it shares with supercars such as the Lamborghini Huracan. The transmission is a dual-clutch 7-speed paddle-shift gearbox and is kitted out with a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine.
Under the guidance of your instructor, you could reach speeds of up to 120 mph in this car at certain track venues. The maximum top speed limit may vary from venue to venue, due to variations in track length, but you will still be able to experience the smooth and perfectly executed acceleration, braking, and cornering on the shorter tracks as you do on the longer tracks.
But that’s not the only Audi model that you can drive on our experience days - explore our range of other brilliant models in our Driving Experience fleet below:
