Which German car is faster than a Lamborghini Gallardo and an Aston Martin DB9? It's not a Porsche, it's the Audi R8! Winner of Autocar's “Best Handling Car” and “Fastest Car in the World” awards the R8 is a true supercar. It's flowing lines make it an object of beauty, it's 200mph top speed makes it an object of lust, and it's balanced weight distribution makes it an object of driving perfection. The R8 is a real drivers' car, the ideal car for pushing the limits on the track. This experience will open your eyes to just how special this supercar is. You'll receive an introduction and safety briefing from one of the highly trained instructors before being taken out for some familiarisation laps of the circuit (most locations) where the instructor will give you hints and tips on racing lines and driving technique. Then it's the main event, you will get to drive one of these German meistercars around the course for a whole 6 miles. With the landscape whipping by you'll really be able to feel the power this stunning car can lay down. Truly a driving experience you'll never forget.

Audi R8 Thrill at Great Tew What a great experience. Excellent hospitality from the moment I arrived. Professional and friendly staff that know their stuff. Awesome instructor who focussed on ME getting the best out of my experience. Encouraged me to have a passenger trip in the Ariel Atom....a truly out of this world experience. 2 laps, clinging onto the crash helmet for dear life as it felt like it would come off under the acceleration. Still can't get the smile off my face! Thank you buyagift. 25 March 2011
R8 Thrill What a car! Very professionally organised event, my tutor was fantastic and he made every part of my day enjoyable. Allowed me to really 'drive the car' so to speak, and had every confience in my driving ability. Good chit chat and conversation, followed by an awesome 6 laps around the track! Just wish I could have driven the car home afterwards and left my MGZR there!!! (haha) 12 March 2011

Brilliant experience My husband got me this for my birthday present and it was an amazing experience. I was very fortunate to have the R8 experience and had a full eight laps. We purchased the USB key for the experience to be recorded and it was worth the £30. So funny!! Great instructor too - enjoy it and I will definitely be going again!!! 25 May 2014
