The stunning R8 is Audi´s first production supercar - and they certainly got it right first time round! Handmade in Germany by specialist teams - the car is all about looks and sound but most importantly, mind blowing performance!

With this experience you´ll not only get to drive the Audi R8. You will drive 3 amazing cars during your 3 hour experience at the UK´s fastest race circuit with one of our ARDS qualified race instructors helping you get you up to speed.

Your experience will start with a briefing:

Our unique driving experience briefing details the important information you need to know before getting behind the wheel and heading out on track: circuit layout, racing line, turn in, apex, exit, braking, throttle control, driving Position, steering and pedal control, gear change, paddle shift, chassis dynamics weight transfer, oversteer, understeer and overtaking and flag signals.

Then you´ll have an instructor demonstration in our Porsche Cayman:

Driving on a race circuit is very different to normal road driving. To make the most of the car you will need to learn the racing line and braking points. Our ARDS race instructors will be on hand to help throughout your experience. This part of the experience is for 2 laps where you will be a passenger watching, listening and learning.


Then it´s your turn as you get behind the wheel of the Porsche Cayman:

The Porsche Cayman is a genuine junior supercar, similar in looks to the 911 but with a mid-engine layout. Out on track the car gives incredible feedback, allowing the driver to build in confidence and enjoy the increased power and incredible grip that the car generates. You´ll drive 3 laps in this car.

Then it´s your turn behind the wheel of the Audi R8:

Listen to the mighty 4.2 litre engine as it bangs into life. The seats literally mould around you as you feel the raw power through the tyres. Incredible levels of grip, even at speed, make you want to give more and more - a really mind blowing driving experience. You drive 4 laps.

Then it´s your turn behind the wheel of a single seater Formula Renault racing car:

Watching Formula 1 will never be the same again after you´ve experienced driving a proper single seat racing car on a proper race circuit. Many of the current crop of F1 drivers have raced in this formula with Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton both winning the UK series. Once seated with the racing straps fitted around you, the engine bursts into life and you´ll feel like a Grand Prix is about to start. Once up to speed, everything clicks into place as you and the car become one, getting quicker every lap, the car responding instantly. A truly unique experience and one that will be remembered. You´ll enjoy 5 laps in this car.
